  • (2021-06-08) Дракоша Пестренький: Прежде всего - это не Tab и не Manager, а просто резервное копирование текущей сессии. Т.к. перемещать вкладки между сессиями нельзя, как и между окнами. Но резервное копирование есть и в любом браузере, а для переключения между сессиями по темам расширение также не подходит т.к. изменения в сессии не запоминает и сами сессии еще найти в меню надо.
  • (2021-05-28) Zorawar Purohit: It epic and superb. Opening chrome and keeping things neat: Easy Getting to work mode with multi window, multi tabs and even groups saved: Wow Reloading all tabs on launch or not to as an option: Epic Keyboard shortcut to launch, click saved session and take off: Stellar
  • (2021-05-18) David Galbraith: Works great though it took a while to understand the GUI (that's on me, I'm dumb). But the dev doesn't reply to support questions at all (maybe a language barier?0 as far as I've seen. This is evidenced by 2 pages of questions, some like mine, that never got answered. I had to redo Chrome completely and can't find which file or folder stores the Tab Session Manager session.
  • (2021-05-17) Mark Holtz: I installed it about 6 months ago, and thought I was protected. It shows up as "enabled" in my extensions, and it apparently just updated yesterday to the newest version, 6.8.1. I was really happy with it, right up until today - the first time I actually needed it. I had many tabs open in Chrome, when I had to close my browser. Normally, when you re-open Chrome, the first tab offers you the option of restoring your previous session. That didn't happen this time, but hey - no problem! That's why I installed Tab Session Manager! Except... I am unable to open Tab Session Manager. Apparently the only way to open the extension is to click on the icon, but - the icon is not here anymore. Doesn't exist. Not on the desktop, not on the toolbar, nowhere. It still shows up as "enabled" in my extensions, but I can't open it from there, so it's basically completely useless. Very, very disappointing. I guess I can't complain too much when something I got for free doesn't work, but I guess you get what you pay for, eh?
  • (2021-05-13) Extra Google Account: Excellent session manager! Active development (and hopefully they will keep going). I use a ton of tabs researching various topics and I tend to have sessions over 100 tabs before I begin to try to limit the amount of open ones. To the developer: Thank you for this extension! I have some feature requests or comments if you would like some feedback. I'll save most for the moment, but I did want to throw out a couple suggestions: -Can html or markdown be added as export options? I tend to end up exporting sessions and organizing them with Devonthink as html docs usually. I got in this habit using Session Buddy, but since your extension has tags, I may not need further organization! -Is there a possibility of adding some drag 'n drop features? For instance, I'd like to be able to drag a window from one session to another session in the session list. Or even individual sites. -Could your extension be taught to strip characters off the URL's of tabs suspended with "Great Suspender" (or equivalents) so that the tabs reload directly to the site itself when launching a session? Thanks again!
  • (2021-05-12) Brooks Jealous: Works like a charm! Would be great to have tab groups support in single extension, but it works!
  • (2021-05-08) Pat MySecret: I was hoping it would save LogIns, but it didn't.
  • (2021-05-07) Mark Wood: Great addon when it worked.... But I've had it crash and not save anything for MONTHS now....
  • (2021-04-30) Doppia E Edoppia: Perfect save-for-later extension. Works flawlessly on firefox, but it has a little problem with syncing in google chrome: every time the browser starts, a new login request appears. Besides, syncronization is NOT automatic.
  • (2021-04-29) Сергей Макаричев: The best tab manager if you need stability, endurance to crashes, prompt tech support and cloud sync. And it also works with tab groups that is pretty rare now.
  • (2021-04-29) Александр Шлычков: Непонятно работает синхронизация с облаком и периодическое авто сохранение сессий. Похоже, что это пока вообще толком не работает на Хроме. Четверка авансом.
  • (2021-04-29) Danny B: Had no "Issues" per se with this extension until it recently updated and then started spamming with with save dialogs. Close one and another opens up. Not sure if it's a mistake or shady business practice to enable features that prevent work from occurring, but not cool either way.
  • (2021-04-27) Valeri Sabev: This saves my life!!! I am so happy with this extension I will most likely donate. For real, as a developer myself I have over 100 tabs opened in multiple windows. This thing is soooo helpful I cannot explain how grateful I am. The worst thing that has happend to be is loosing 100 tabs, do you know what this feels like, months and months of research websites, planned to-watch videos and numerous documentation files. I love it, this resolves my fear of having a unpredictable shut down and failing to restore my tabs later. Thank you so much @Sienori, such an MVP. To be honest I was on the verge of doing an extension myself but god this is useful!
  • (2021-04-27) Uri Rosenbluth: This is really really good. Everything just makes sense. Cloud sync is brilliant.
  • (2021-04-23) Jan Neff-Sinclair: Like so many other things related to browsers in the last few years, this started out working great and has steadily degraded. I don't know if it is the fault of Microsoft because I have been using their Edge browser or if it is the fault of Google who makes the Chrome browser that Edge is now based on. I do know if started with Firefox imploding on itself and bringing out completely new browser revisions with everything including my favorite extensions broken. Heck, when I had a good version of Firefox, I didn't need a tab session manager. This one started out great doing everything it claimed to do. That was up until the last few upgrades. Each one broke it further. I admit that I have a lot of tabs open . . . or used to until this kept crashing and losing everything I was working on. People who don't have many tabs open don't really need this sort of utility. I am exactly the type of high-powered engineer-type user who needs something like this, or one that actually works. The latest version of it brings back my tabs some of the time, but they are usually reversed across the top of the browser. The tab that was the left most is now the right most and so on, a mirror flip. Oh, that's not so bad, you say . . . but it is if you are expecting certain tabs to be in certain places and have to go hunting to see where they were moved to. That is when they are all brought back. Lately, around half of the tabs are brought back from a window while the first tab from that window is brought back by itself in a new window. So I get double the number of windows open with almost half the tab gone, gone, gone. I want to strangle someone at this point because I am going to have to either go back a month and see what it will bring up then or go through my history for the last month to find everything I need. Since I have probably used and no longer need hundreds of tabs,. how long will that take and how much work will I not get done because I am trying to recover from what this utility did to my workflow. There is no excuse for continually breaking what used to be a great utility. Are you trying to emulate Mozilla or what?
  • (2021-04-18) Michael Mancarella: Perfect for simple automatic session backups to give more peace of mind compared to Chrome's built in tab restore feature.
  • (2021-04-11) Ahmed Seoudi: Good, but i'd like it to auto sync when i save sessions manually. UPDATE: Thx for the automatic syncing, but it doesn't work when the session is saved in chrome. UPDATE: Turns out the config was somewhat and i fixed it. the auto syncing starts after a few seconds after it though. but here is my five stars anyway.
  • (2021-04-10) Mauro Javier: No funciona. Después de reestablecer Chrome se borra todo, no sincroniza y no importa el archivo de 133Kb que exporte antes de reestablecer. Claramente no es fiable en absoluto y me hizo perder mucho tiempo. Lo único que funciona es el backup que no se puede reestablecer.
  • (2021-03-30) Алибабас Антупсиков: Стоят несколько менеджеров закладок. Этот вне конкуренции, потому что позволяет сохранить кучу вкладок как одну (внутри этого расширения), а также экспортирует в файл нужную многосессию. Больше ни у кого не нашёл такого функционала. Огромное спасибо разработчику, подумавшему о нас!
  • (2021-03-29) Yan: This is awesome! Best session manager I've tried so far and has the very important features I need such as cloud sync and the choice to save 1 window only. Thank you for the wonderful product!
  • (2021-03-22) Jeff State: This is one of the few session managing extensions still being actively updated. However, this extension does not support restoring Tab Groups. Restoring sessions results in disorganized tabs, which then need reclassifying into Tab Groups. Google has listed the Tab Group API as working since Chrome v89: https://developer.chrome.com/docs/extensions/reference/tabGroups/ My hope that an actively-developed extension, like Tab Session Manager, can now use Chrome's Tab Groups API to get it implemented. Everything else with this extension, works great, so this is a 5* review as soon as Tab Group restoration is implemented.
  • (2021-03-21) ThePerfect1077: Works great, I just need need it to have tab group support.
  • (2021-03-17) Mattias Wernér: It's really great to have this extension for both Firefox and Chrome. One request, I'd like to be able to set the shortcuts in Chrome like I can in the Firefox extension. In its current state, it overrides Bitwarden's default Ctrl+Shift+L for autofilling logins.
  • (2021-03-14) Dany Shqiptar: I use this extension in conjunction with Tab Group Saver as a way to backup my tabs. By the way, the optional saving of private sessions is really nice. Would be nice if it restored chrome groups too
  • (2021-03-12) Richard Lloyd: I have been a long time user of FreshStart and my only reasoning for switching at the moment is the Tab lazy loading. Tab lazy loading is a must have in session management when you are a heavy user of tabs and multiple windows. My hesitation and for the 4 Star is I like that FreshStart stores the sessions in Bookmarks. This allows me to access my sessions via Mobile. At the moment I wish there was a way to import my sessions from FreshStart. If I knew how to make my own extension it would be incorporated along with Auto Save or Session sync. If you need to see that in action check out Smart Sessions. I like the idea of this as there are enough times that I am researching something and would like it to sync based on my adding/removing. With that I currently use all 3. Tab Sessions Manager for my day to day, Smart session for my heavy research and FreshStart in case I need access to my saved sessions.
  • (2021-02-10) Yuri Alexandrov: What about support for Chrome Tab Groups??? Currently not save them and I can't find such option in settings (((
  • (2021-02-06) Antonio Montalto: Penso che è l'estensione più ben fatta del suo genere ma da qualche giorno mi sta dando tantissimi problemi al risveglio dei tabs perché non mi ricarica le pagine ma mi da questo errore: klbibkeccnjlkjkiokjodocebajanakg è bloccato Le richieste al server sono state bloccate da un'estensione. Prova a disattivare le estensioni. ERR_BLOCKED_BY_CLIENT Se disabilito l'estensione come suggerisce mi elimina tutti i tabs sospesi dalla estensione perdendo tutta la sessione.. potete risolvere per piacere?
  • (2021-02-05) Roman Sorokin: Бесполезное приложение. Хотел спасти свои вкладки, которые закрылись после удаления суспендера. По счастью на втором компе хром не обновлялся и суспендер тоже. Установил данное приложение. На втором компе зашёл в настройки и выгрузил сессию со всеми вкладками в файл. Потом зашёл на первом компе в настройки приложения и сделал импорт сессии из файла. Меня спросило а точно ли я хочу импортировать все вкладки из файла? Я ответил - ДА, и произошло ровным счётом Ни-Че- Го. То, для чего приложение было сделано не случилось, не осилило загрузить и открыть собственный же файл с вкладками. Хорошо хоть файл не пустой. Теперь придётся сидеть и вручную доставать оттуда ссылки страниц, которые были открыты.

  • (2020-11-03) Claudio Abraham: I so used to love this extension, until today that Chrome crushed and suddenly I LOST ALL MY SAVED SESSIONS!!!!!!!!!!! Even the folder was gone, and is not a Hard Drive problem. Really I know the work it takes to code a free extension... but how on earth, this ERASES all your previous work, without even warning?!?!? I wasn't even in the Tab Session Manager screen at that time. They just DISSAPPEARED!!! I truly can't believe this. I can understand bugs, but bugs that erases all of your previous work (maaaany sessions saved!!) is kinda unacceptable.
  • (2020-09-28) Massimiliano Busano: Great extension works very weel... just one bug: when you setup new vhrome tab group fuction the group its not saved with the session. this would make the extension perfect!
  • (2020-09-27) Marcus Quinn: Great work! Any chance of supporting import from "Tab Saver" for Safari?
  • (2020-09-25) Shaunak De: This is a very good extension for productivity.
  • (2020-09-17) Sue Marie: I've been using this for months and was glad to have the option of saving daily sessions. Today is the first time my tabs didn't appear when I opened Chrome. Instead the tab manager came up with an updated message and only one of my tabs showed up. I tried to retrieve yesterday's session and nothing happens. Same with the day before's session. Many are in the folder, but nothing happens, even though the import buttons tells me it's been done. Now my computer is bogged down and the task manager is telling me I have 55 tabs open and my CPU is at 100%. When I went to report the problem, I found many posts reporting the same thing as early as last Feb. and I don't see any replies from the developer offering a fix..I guess it was a false sense of security all this time.
  • (2020-09-09) Alvin Leong: good extension i like it especially the sync feature. However, the sync feature is very annoying, it ask for password almost every few times or after reopen chrome or after awhile or after i opened chrome in different account profile

  • (2020-08-02) Larry GZE: Two requests to achieve perfectness for this extension, 1) Please add sessions manual sorting. Now only preset rules. not flexible. 2) Please add sessions "Pin" or "Set to Top" function. 3) Please add colorized sessions titles function.. Thanks for this great work!!!
  • (2020-07-31) Don't do it: It is quite useful. But they should fix the Import/Export option, because when I export a file and I want to import weeks later, it tells me an error and won't let me import files! I have lost data by trusting this option!
  • (2020-07-24) Ryan _wpi: Perfect. 👍
  • (2020-06-26) estronnom: thank you so much, waiting for auto cloud sync
  • (2020-04-16) London Visuals: Could you please add an option to add particular tab to previously saved session ? This way the addon could also work like a themed bookmark tool - for example you work daily on three different topics - you create a session fot each one. While casually browsing the web however you come across a page that fits one of the aforementioned topics/sessions for later research and you just add it there. Will definitely rate it 5 if it had that option. Would save almost any tab hoarder out there ;)

Basically, when I now click "Open" to restore a previously saved session, it is loading the active tab just fine, but all other tabs don't fully load and show the title of the tab plus its URL and a copy button in the main window. The URL itself shows as "extension://jkjjclfiflhpjangefhgfjhgfbhajadk/replaced/index.html?state=redirect&title=" (partial URL). Any idea of what's going on here? Thank you!

    Hi First of all thank you so much for a great extension. I love it! I have a brand new clean install of Windows 10 Pro 20h2 with only Edge as a browser. I have used your extension with other computers with Win 10 Home 20h2 (upgraded a long time ago from Win 7) and never had this problem. When I click on a weblink from let's say Cortana or the Help (link to help webpage) from any program, if Edge is closed it opens but not the link's page. But if Edge is already open or minimized then it works. I disabled your extension (the only extension on Edge browser) and the problem disappears. Please help! I love this extension and Edge but I use theses links quite often and it is really frustrating.

    I installed Tab Session Manager Version 6.4.0 Backer on Chromium Version 87.0.4280.66 (Official Build) Built on Ubuntu , running on LinuxMint 19.2 (64-bit) and imported my tabs from a Firefox where I had a Simple Tab Groups add-on. All the 113 tabs arrived in one group and I can't name and/or re-group them. On the Firefox I could create and name different groups, move tabs between groups, re-arrange them, etc. Can I do this with Tab Session Manager, too? Is there any help page or tutorial available? Thanks, Zoltan

    Hi, Thanks so much for this truly essential addon. I have an issue in Chrome that does not happen in Firefox. The login to my google account for gdrive sync seems to be expiring in Chrome, after a couple of hours. This happens in different machines too. Any ideas as to what might be causing this?
  • (2021-01-17, v:6.4.0) Juan Lanche: Import not working
    This extension is a godsend. Thank you very much for making it! I successfully exported my session for Microsoft Edge on one machine then imported it into another. The issue I'm having is that while it worked for Chromium Edge, it did not work for the Edge Dev version of the browser. Initially I had the Dev version before the stable builds existed so ended up having both in the end once the Windows Update pushed it out. Anyway, the they each have completely different sessions and the stable build imported it's respective session no problem. However, importing my Edge Dev session is basically doing nothing. The menu for importing does show the alert that the import is done but then the session is not listed in the sessions list. Is this a known issue or perhaps I'm doing something wrong? Please let me know when you are able! Thank you!
  • (2021-01-17, v:6.4.0) ingo: Feature Request: save google tab groups without google API
    your extenson is great, but since then new google tab groups feature, a saved session is not usefull for saved sessions without the tab groups. Saving the profile folders (Session, Session Worker, Session Storage) and restoring this later is now the only way to get session and folders back. Can you implement a function with do this, or if write some hints to modify the extension til google adds saving for tab groups api. I know that is not a good solution, but temporary it could work. I can programm but i am still a noob in webprogramming, so but with a few hint what must modified so I hope i can modify it by myself if you are not interested in implenting this. I am not really believing that google add this feature soon.
  • (2021-01-05, v:6.4.0) Alison Marks: Ability to label windows
    I love this extension and there isn't much I would change. One feature suggestion though.... I really love being able to rename the saved "sessions" or groupings of windows BUT would also like to be able to rename the "Windows" within each of these through the same click & rename feature. For example- instead of needing 3 saved sessions for 1) "Things to Buy- Groceries" (2 windows, 4 tabs each); 2) "Things to Buy- Furniture" (6 windows, 3 tabs each); and 3) "Things to Buy- Misc" (3 windows, 2 tabs each) .....I could have just ONE session "Things to Buy" and then a total of 11 windows each with their own names (e.g. Things to Buy- Groceries- Beverages; Things to Buy- Groceries- Candy; Things to Buy- Furniture- Desks; Things to Buy- Furniture- Desk Chair; etc).
  • (2021-01-05, v:6.4.0) Alison Marks: Issue with Syncing
    For some reason my Chrome extension won't sync. It works fine in Internet explorer. Tried logging out of Google and back in. Tried turning off and back on the extension. Will let me click the cloud sync button but just gets stuck at the "syncing" stage...not even displaying the "X/XYZ" changes text that it normally does during sync. Can we get this bug fixed? I rely on this extension for so many things and can't have it unsynced :(

    Hello. After some setting up it was working like intended. Great Add-on, really! The thing is I use too many tabs opened and I started to use the vanilla tab groups. Is there a way to make it sync as well? Cheers!!
  • (2020-12-11, v:6.3.0) Newtomic: The Sync works just fine, and is awesome, but 2 minor things...
    1. If is possible make the extension to not need the password every single time the browser is restarted. 2. The Sync doesn't sync the Deleted Sessions. :-/ Thanks for this extension is the best one for tab managing. Period! :-D

    I can't find where the sessions are stored on my Windows 10 computer. Someone stated that they were stored in the current download folder, but I couldn't find them there, either. At the moment, I'm using Opera, but I'd like that info for all supported Windows browsers. Thanks!
  • (2020-11-17, v:6.3.0) Stéphane F.: Exclamation mark on the cloud sync button
    Hello, Each time I restart my browser, a white on red exclamation mark comes on the cloud synchronization button. When I click on it, either sync goes well and the exclamation mark disappears, or my Google credentials are asked before I can sync. However, Chrome sync is enabled and working. This happens whether cookies are cleaned or not on browser exit. Can you help ? Thanks !
  • (2020-11-15, v:6.3.0) Cezar Cehan: Saving session at start not working
    Hi, First, I want to thank you for this extension: it helped me saving and reconstructing the browser. Secondly, though, something happened; I'm not sure why. - usually, when the browser restarted, the extension asked me to save the session, which had a name (the date) and an extension (json)... ex, "2020-10-06 20-45-06 (153 sessions).json" - now, that file has a weird name and no extension (8dad195c-5ced-4afb-9d50-6ac51b9de09e). It doesn't appear on my sessions list. I took a screenshot, but I cannot paste it here... Do you have any idea what happened? I didn't change any of the settings. Could it be another extension which interferes with your? Thank you, Cezar
  • (2020-11-08, v:6.3.0) Bill Rubin: Don't autosave Peek-a-Tab window
    I use the Peek-a-Tab extension (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/peek-a-tab-tabs-manager-f/nnpdamdaknpnohmlbnmgphiodghbohop_), which opens a window with the list of all open tabs. I have autosave set in your extension, and I end up with lots of one tab windows in my list of autosaved sessions that I do not want. You should either not save this at all, or provide a way to disable auto-save or windows like this.

    EXPORT VS BACKUPS ISSUES [1] Is there a way to SELECTIVELY back up ON DEMAND (not just at browser start up) just SOME/A FEW sessions (not all of them). [2] Is there some way to back up all session ON DEMAND (not just at browser start up). [2.a] Is an export of all sessions the SAME as a backup of all sessions ON DEMAND? [3] I noted when I do an export, it creates a funny alphanumeric chain name without any extension. Can I rename this to something more useful and give it a .json or .session extension? [3a] I need to verify from you that I will be able to import any previous export regardless of it being left as that funny alphanumeric "chain name" that does not have an extension or regardless if I had renamed the alphanumeric and had given it a meaningful extension .like .json or .sessions Thanks ED R.

  • (2020-09-17, v:6.2.1) Bradley Ewles: Option to remove shortcut
    Hi, Firstly, I just wanted to say how much I love the app. I've been using it for years now and it's a lifesaver as a student. However, when I'm using Google Docs and I want to use the cmd+shift+l command (on mac) to align text to the left, it opens Tab Session Manager. It's a fantastic shortcut to have, but unfortunately it overlaps and it's really frustrating as there is no way to disable it as far as I am aware. Maybe I just haven't figured out how to disable it yet, so if there is a way, please enlighten me! If not, do you think it would be possible to introduce that into the app?  Thanks so much in advance, Brad :)

  • (2020-09-17, v:6.2.1) Sue Marie: can't retrieve any saved session
    I have almost daily sessions saved. Today is the first time I had a reason to bring one back. They are in the folder, but no matter if I choose import or export, nothing happens. I've chosen different dates with the same result. Not sure if this is part of the problem but today instead of all my tabs showing up, it was one tab and the sessions manager,which said it updated. Also, when I opened Chrome and it asked to save, I did and that file looks different from the rest. Have I lost a way to retrieve them?
