  • (2019-12-17) Wojtek Barański: It is great but it would be even better if there was some confirmation popup to prevent accidental closing of 100s of tabs. Thanks.

  • (2019-06-29) David Russell: Works great, bizarre that this isn't included in Chrome by default (especially since, by default, tabs to the left are older tabs)

  • (2021-12-15, v:1.2.1) Sean O'Neill: Where is it?
    No arrow icon or button appears for this extension on my computer. Am I not seeing it?
  • (2021-12-02, v:1.2.1) Adriel Werlich: Stopped working
    It´s not working. My chrome version is 96.0.4664.45 - 32 bits
  • (2020-06-14, v:1.1) Zohar Levi: Close tabs to the right
    Your button is quite convenient. I'd like another button that closes tabs to the right. It involves changing the '<' to '>' in TabCloseScript.js and publishing it (with a flipped icon).
