Image from store Clear Tabs
Description from store Have a lot of open tabs you want to easily clean up? Need to quickly close your open tabs and just as easily bring them back to life? "Clear Tabs" allows you to quickly close all open tabs in Chrome, except for your currently selected tab. Just click the extension icon! The extension also counts how many tabs you have open. Accidentally close all of your tabs and want them back? No problem! Just click the extension again when you see a "1 R" as a badge. All of your tabs will return. Simple, easy, and memory efficient. Built for ease of use! Please keep the following features in mind: Only tabs in the current Chrome window will close, it will not close tabs on other Chrome window sessions. If you create a new tab, remove a tab, or change window focus, your previously closed tabs will NOT be recoverable. Tabs are only recoverable when the "R" recovery badge is visible in the extension icon. The recovery feature is for accidental clicks only, not a "tab saver" function. Version History 1.0.0 -- Initial public release. 1.0.1 -- Improper recovery fixed when only two tabs open. 1.0.2 -- Package integrity error. 1.0.3 -- Icon working with Firefox extension. 1.0.4 -- Fixed error: Too many open tabs caused them not to be able to be restored. - Performance improvement on closing tabs. - First attempt at getting extension to work with Firefox for Android. 1.0.5 -- Performance improvements. Finally fixed all bugs that would not allow a restore with a high number of tabs open.

  • (2021-09-17) Jeff Berlin: Love it, simple, easy to use.
  • (2019-11-04) OutOfTouch: If only it would add an entry to the tab's context menu (right click) then it would be a 10/10 extension... At least it's it's a workaround since google removed "close all other tabs" option recently... Which I can't understand since it was easily one the most used features by me....
  • (2019-10-26) Kalvin Drake: This is an essential extension to have now that Google has removed this functionality from Chrome.
  • (2018-05-12) TWO ONE: good
