  • (2024-03-16) Jim Friedlander: What a great idea! So useful. An option to prevent closing of pinned tabs would be great.
  • (2023-07-14) Jeffrey Nichtberger: Brilliant idea. Highly customizable extension with an inventive & efficient approach for closing tabs. Works pretty well (but can take a bit of time before it renders in) and I like being able to configure it exactly how I want it to behave and look. However, it messes up the vertical scrolling of web pages when you have the bottom bar type selected (the only one that is suitable for a multi-monitor setup). It needs a toggle to hide its vertical scroll bar, just as there is already a toggle for hiding the impact on the horizontal scroll bar. Until that is in place, I can't really use this extension effectively due to my multiple monitors. Future improvements that should get made: No limit for the max bar width, let you select multiple zones to place the bar, allow for clicking on content behind the bar when 'double click to trigger' is selected, and let us pick the icon used in the context menu entry just as can be done for the extension icon.
  • (2023-06-03) Samuele gg: Possibilità di personalizzare l'aspetto grafico dell'icona sulla barra; 4 pulsanti in 1 di rapida scelta. Amazing! The best !
  • (2023-05-11) Shmuel: Life changing extension, there're a handful of websites it doesn't work on

  • (2021-04-17) ˑ: Расширение обновилось и изменилось в ХУДШУЮ сторону. Иконка специально стала ужасной, поменять ее теперь нельзя. Отключить совсем зону клика нельзя. Основные функции, которыми только и пользовался, стали ПЛАТНЫМИ. Удаляю и прощаюсь.
  • (2021-03-01) vladapt: Excellent extension! I miss it so much when I use other than Chrome browsers. Are there any similar extensions with the side bars, not just a close-button, for Firefox and Edge?
  • (2020-10-26) Eralp Narman: Çok şık bi sekme kapatma tekniği elde ediyosunuz bunu ekleyince, her şey de güzel çalışıyor
  • (2020-09-26) ВАСЯ пупкин: Удобное и красивое.
  • (2020-09-17) Sam Nordberg: Seriously speeds up my browsing. It is incredibly convenient to have this feature. Perfect for keybaord-free, mouse-only browsing. Much quicker for me than the rival extensions that have you double-right-click to close the tab.
  • (2020-08-12) I never knew how badly I wanted this feature until I tried it. Now there is no way I can live without it. My productivity in dealing with lots of tabs is exponentially better. I used to keep one hand on the mouse, one hand on control-W but now I sit back and let the mouse do all the world. Genius idea perfectly implemented.
  • (2020-04-08) Lee D: Very useful, just what I was looking for. Works perfectly, thank you.

    Hi Like the extension - thank you I can't get the icon in menu bar options to stick - it can change the appearance, but doesn't save either "show menu" or "disable" - hence always defaults to close tab using Chrome latest Thanks

  • (2018-06-16, v:2.0.5) Peter Liepmann: "read and change all your data on the website you visit"
    Create an option to delete this permission. I'd rather have to close/reopen Chrome than have the security risk.

    Hello Your updated app nees permission to "read and change all your data on the website you visit" Why on earth would I want to give your app permission to do that?
