A better OneTab

Image from store better-onetab
Description from store This a better onetab extension Storing and grouping tabs are very useful. Onetab could help you to store the tabs you opened so that to free up your resources and remove clutter. But Onetab still lacks some features such as the simple list and just store selected tabs. Since One tab it's not open source and because they update very rarely I decided to make a "Better" Onetab extension. ★ Basic If you used OneTab in the past, you can use Better Onetab like before. Expect store all tabs from a window, you can also just store the tabs you selected. Better Onetab still provide the ability to store all tabs, store left or right tabs and any others. And you can also use it from the context menu. Samely, you can also use "pin list" to keep a list will not be removed, set the title of a list or drag to change the order of tabs. Even you can set the color of a list in the new version. ★ Popup simple list This is one of the key features I wanted One tab to have. This allows you to have the list of stored tabs at hand just with a click of the icon. You can also manage the lists of tabs as well quickly from the popup. * You can change the "Behavior when icon is clicked" in the options page and enable or disable "simple popup list". ★ Keyboard shortcut You can set a keyboard shortcut for "store selected tabs" or other action so that you can store tabs very easily. It is helpful for improving efficiency. ★ Add to history You can choose to add the tabs to browser history if you like. ★ Migrate from Onetab It is very simple. Better Onetab support to import the data exported from Onetab so that you can try Better Onetab easily. ★ Execute from other extensions If you are using some others extensions, such as a mouse gesture extension, you can use the following code to execute "store selected tabs" command. chrome.runtime.sendMessage('eookhngofldnbnidjlbkeecljkfpmfpg', 'store-selected-tabs') Expect it, you can replace 'store-selected-tabs' with other string to call other commands: - store-all-tabs - restore-lastest-list - open-lists ★ Some other quality of life improvements Better Onetab will not open pages when you open the browser, but if you want, it is a simple thing. ------------------ visit this link if you want to check codes, submit a feedback or new features request: https://github.com/cnwangjie/better-onetab

Latest reviews

  • (2023-10-25) anony subscribe: just downloaded and read reviews. privacy practices should be disclosed, especially from china.
  • (2023-10-03) Anna F.: I'm sorry, but I don't see how this is better than OneTab. Instead of a single page long list, my saved tab groups are displayed in pages. That slows me down significantly when I'm looking for a specific group. It also looks really cluttered because it doesn't show only the title like OneTab, but the title and the URL. That might sound useful, but it actually slows you down as well, because it increases the amount of information that you have to process.
  • (2023-09-22) Tête à-tête: gave it a brief go - i had to create an export file from onetab, to import. it opened the list, but did nothing with it. so.. i pinned the icon and clicked it, to save all tabs - nothing happened. so.. i wrote this, and removed this brave extension but, like ozzymandias, i shall return!
  • (2023-09-03) E LeCaire: This is exactly what it's called, a better version of one tab. The only thing I wish I could do is email the saved list.
  • (2023-08-29) Daniel Malara (Dan): My OneTab crashed and I can't even tell you how much work history I've lost. I'm not going to delete that one because I still hope I can recover data from the corrupted file somehow. Meanwhile, I have felt overwhelmed without a solution for storing work sessions. Very thankful to have found this piece of code. I want to reach the developer to see if he might want to keep working on it more. Would be cool to see a web3 data storage solution for account backups :D
  • (2023-06-15) ARSTLUL: This is a completely advanced extension over the original. im happy to have the options to customize the details. thanks to the developer
  • (2023-04-05) Brian L: You are right, I agree that this is better than Onetab, but for those used to Onetab like me, it is a confusing at first. those people will click on the icon expecting all the tabs to disappear, but then it doesn't and mentions lists. I almost uninstalled this and to go back to Onetab, but I'm glad I went to settings where I figured out how this works. Like a few of your 1 star raters said, you probably shouldn't use the name of the other app, and also not claim this is better even if it probably is. Just call it something like "Super Tab Manager"-- a customizable way to reduce the memory drain from open tabs...
  • (2023-01-19) Joe Lakey: Trading on the name of a popular extension to generate traffic is spammy and just plain unethical. On top of that, calling yourself "better" is presumptuous and a claim that you'd better be able to back up. So far, you've not come close. Get your own name and earn your own popularity.
  • (2022-12-30) Artemi Lebedev: no online support no intuitive
  • (2022-10-20) Péter Jutai: All my tabs are gone from one day to the other. And before some may say I was an idiot: I did not touch my computer for a month. Came home from a trip, wanted to continue where I left off - but all tabs are gone. Splendid...
  • (2022-10-19) Andy Briesemeister: Leider nicht zu gebrauchen. Weder funktioniert alle Tab speichern, noch kann man Tabs wieder löschen.
  • (2022-10-19) 伟吕: Better than onetab
  • (2022-09-28) Deniz Gök: super and FOSS
  • (2022-07-30) Sourabh Chhabra: features are not working...
  • (2022-04-08) Ali Zain: when inputting title for my tab collections, the typing is extremely slow. i like the UI and everything, but that one thing is a huge let down. Im using it on opera.
  • (2022-04-03) tang tomson: 如果能够开放每页的列表数量限制就更好了
  • (2022-03-22) Hattin Berryman: It's great! I started with OneTab, but I moved to this for it's extra features and dark mode.
  • (2022-03-17) Cameron Minuzzo (Cam): Trying to save any more than 50 tabs (I know it's a lot) seems to cause Better-Onetab to open the UI to quickly before closing the tabs resulting in the tabs not actually saving. Basically, it has poor reliability with larger groups of tabs.
  • (2022-02-28) John: I had been using this for a while, but recently it has just gotten worse and worse. Now, mind you, it might be the fact that I'm using it on Edge, since Edge being Chromium based now allows the use of Chrome Extensions, and that might be messing the Extension up. But what makes this so bad - at least in my experience - lately, is that it is incapable of saving lists, and even incapable of deleting lists, as manually deleting them will have the deleted lists pop right back up again the moment I refresh the page. It can still open the tabs from the lists I already have saved, and I bet that if I were to individually check the other functions, most of them would work with what is already saved in the lists I already have. But not being able to create new lists of tabs, or even deleting old ones, just defeats the entire reason for this extension's existence.
  • (2022-02-18) Pat MySecret: Looks like a nice standard Session saver. Now, if it was able to store logins, I'd be extra impressed.
  • (2022-02-17) AMALDEV BIJU: good everything perfect
  • (2022-01-29) Иван Владимирович Павелко: lists do not save, they disappear if you refresh a page
  • (2022-01-21) Briana Pizzano: This extension is great! You just pin the extension, and then you highlight the tabs you want to save (hold control to select multiple or hold shift to save all the tabs in between) and right click on the extension icon & click "store tabs". Makes it super easy and you can see different groups of tabs from different days, which makes it easy to work on multiple projects. This app has saved my life when it comes to lit reviews.
  • (2021-12-13) Coscorrodrift: Better in some ways but worse in others Good things: tags, ability to import from onetab, ability to sort groups (but implementation is clunky, i wanna drag the group to where i want it, not click an arrow) Bad things: looks worse (why is everything in different places than onetab? lol just copy its design and tweak it a bit, it has a TON of borders for everything), it has pages instead of being one scrollable list, performs WAY worse (super slow at times), and still doesn't have functionality like being able to shift-select several tabs at once.
  • (2021-12-13) Phoenix Phi: Until V2 of this extension is deployed, go use Tablerone. It blows all the other tab managers out of the water.
  • (2021-12-07) Thomas W: Bad. Loses some tabs randomly. Not better than onetab. The UI is just as ugly, yet is less readable and feels slower. I wish the CSS animations were faster instead of only having an on/off option. I wish it stored all the tab lists on the same page. The only advantage to this extension over onetab is collapsible lists, but the large headers and bad typographic hierarchy ruin it. Why are retitle/restore/remove/pin options text bigger than the title of the tab list? Why does the list of options wrap onto two lines for a fullscreen Chrome window? Why are they plaintext nearly identical to all other text on the screen? Why are they text at all? Small icons would be less cluttered. There's already a pin icon so why not have every option be an icon? Why are the colors all so ugly? Bright blue + shades of grey make for simultaneously poor contrast and too much contrast. These are all simple changes that would make a large difference. Clearly the programmers have not learned any basic UI/UX design. Criticizing onetab for bad UI is a joke.
  • (2021-11-17) Hafid Zeghayda: not working anymore
  • (2021-09-21) Anastasiou Alex: Send selected tabs to list doesn't work, only sends 1.

  • (2021-07-30) Estu Glx: Lists lose all tabs, even created lists disappear. This extension was good at first but now it does not do the work
  • (2021-07-21) 清: 那个,这款插件的外观和功能一样能打,但是,它的主图标太模糊了!这么优秀又用心的作品,用像素这么模糊的图标实在没有排面😂️ 另外,我不知道它能不能通过浏览器账号自动同步,这里好多人都说丢失了标签数据,听起来很可怕。 希望上面两点都能得到改善,给作者五星! 另外,通过谷歌账号同步标签页应该是可行的。我用过一个极尽简单的标签插件,它虽然几乎什么多余功能都没有,但却做到同步了。我中间重装过两次系统,标签页都还在。
  • (2021-06-27) SaFteiNZz: Way better than saving to bookmarks and open all, no trouble. I just set my first enter page to better onetab so once i open chrome I can restore my pages as soon as I can click. Thanks for the effort in the extension
  • (2021-06-23) Peter Romero: Zero intuitivity. Gave up after I couldn't manage to save a single tab.
  • (2021-05-21) Hào Hùng: This is so much better than the one tab extension. It does what I want one tab to do, including store only selected tab when I click the icon, open the tab but not remove it from the list. Love it when it's also open-source. Developers of this extension, you're god-sent to me!
  • (2021-04-17) Kun Ji: Better get away from it.
  • (2021-04-05) Jayden Seaton: its a onetab with a lot more better features and better looking but thats what makes it worse in my opinion because onetab is simpalistic and easy to move things around open tabs close them with just clicking on the icon and in all just simple and thats what i want from something i will use everyday and this aint it, its a lot cleaner yet more annoying to use
  • (2021-03-20) esgalmir: Тонны багов, связанных с дубликатами и сохранением вкладок в именованные группы. Исправлять их никто не будет - разработка заброшена. Вкладки теряются, синхронизации с облаком нет (облако протухло). Совершенно непригодно!

  • (2020-11-27) Shoop: what is https://boss.cnwangjie.com/and why does it need access to that?
  • (2020-11-24) Johnny Sun: just closes the tab, doesn't save anything
  • (2020-10-20) Per Aday: bonus points for you to begin just for not misleading people by falsely claiming the extension can save 95% of their memory used (when those savings are from closing the tabs, not the extension at all. In other words, the browser's Close Tab button should advertise that it can save people 95% of their memory used. Why google allows such misleading claims by an extension is baffling.)
  • (2020-10-15) Seth: Multiple issues with it deleting my tabs instead of storing them... Plus I have a lot of problems with it saving my settings (how hard is it to remember I had it on dark mode?) I'm writing this in the hopes this gets better. But I can't do this, so I'll stick with the original for now
  • (2020-10-04) Zach Hurst: Mostly issue free in 2020 & far better than the alternatives.
  • (2020-09-28) 宋腾飞: 不行,点击存储标签,结果把标签全部关闭,一个也没保存,好几次了,太影响使用了,我评论完就卸载,后面人注意点。虽然不是每次都发生,发生一次都够呛!
  • (2020-09-24) mr Watson: Хорошая задумка, выглядит красиво, в отличии от известного расширения можно сворачивать группы, делать им цветовую маркировку, можно сразу по нажатию на кнопку расширения выбрать в какую именованную группу сохранить вкладку. Но есть критичный баг, если сразу сохраняете в одну группу сайты с одного домена, то при выборе на удаление одного из адресов, удаляются из группы все с того же домена. Ещё не работает открытие в конце списка вкладок по умолчанию.
  • (2020-09-16) Magda: Just get the regular OneTab, its better

  • (2023-05-26, v:1.4.7) John Lockard: Partially works in Vivaldi
    better-onetab 1.4.7 Vivaldi 6.0.2979.22 (Stable channel) (64-bit) Revision 0d17fb5885899ddd2d5bdee8eb1b1a6fc9ad98c6 OS Windows 11 Version 22H2 (Build 22621.1778) JavaScript V8 User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/ Safari/537.36 In the BetterOneTab lists window, when I select item(s) from a list (checkbox) and try any of the options in the Menu (Move To, Open, Duplicate, Copy Link, Copy Title, Remove), nothing happens. To remove items from a list, I either have to create another list from a tab, then move my item to that new list, then delete the new list. This is "fine" if the my item and the new list are on page 1 of my list of links. Otherwise I need to now move the new list to be on the same page as the link(s) to be deleted. Also, right-click on the beter-onetab icon, 'store into a titled list' is present, but none of the titled lists is displayed. Therefore I cannot store links into lists I have already created. I need to store them, then hopefully be able to move them from the new list to the existing list. and all problems mentioned in the previous paragraph pop up.
  • (2023-05-07, v:1.4.7) Centrul Crestin Raul Trezirii: Filter tabs
    If you add a simple feature like the ability to filter all the wanted tabs based on some patterns addressing the URL or the web page title (thus selecting all tabs that treat a specific thing) - or even by addressing (this part only as much as possible, if not possible seems alright) the tabs by the range interval (time and date) they were opened (or at least the order they were opened?... - this only if possible. The other pattern matching seems more useful, anyway) -> this would make this extension a lot more complete :) ...

  • (2019-05-22, v:1.4.5) Jeff N: Two things I would really like to see fixed
    First, I cannot get the move to function to work so that I can add individual or entire lists to another titled list. I click everything, then hit "move to," but when I select the destination, it doesn't do anything. Anyone know what might be wrong here? Secondly, when I search for anything, it actually brings up the page before the page with the correct search result. So you have to go to the next page of lists to find what you were searching for. Everything else I have commented about I eventually figured out how to do, they were just features I was not sure how to work but were there all along. These two things, however, I cannot get to work correctly. This extension is one of the best I have ever used and it helps me stay productive. To the developers: I really appreciate you. Thank you for your time.
