Description from extension meta

Limit the maximum number of open tabs

Image from store Tabalot
Description from store Automatically limit the number of open tabs. If you end up with too many tabs open, all reduced to a tiny size, this extension will help you keep those tabs under control. After reaching a configurable open tab limit, that excludes pinned tabs, Tabalot will automatically close the oldest unused tab. As you get close to your tab limit, the extension icon badge count will start to turn red and will flash red when it closes a tab. Note that the tab badge count shows tabs in the current open window only (which seems to be a limitation on chrome) but will correctly update as you switch windows. ***PRIVACY POLICY*** Tabalot does not handle personal or sensitive user data.

  • (2013-11-01) Lee Kohl-Bradley: Super easy to change number of allowed tabs. Function isn't ideal. I hacked it to give an alert rather than randomly close tabs. change this line in the js: // close the leftmost tab that isn't active or the instigator of the last opened tab --unPinnedTabsCount; alert("Over tab limit"); chrome.tabs.query({currentWindow: true, active: true}, function(tab){ // Get the current tab chrome.tabs.remove(tab[0].id); // Remove the tab });

  • (2015-09-03, v:0.0.3) Manuel Silva: instead of opened tab quantity, limit loading tabs
    instead of opened tab quantity, limit loading tabs ex: max allowed of 4 downloading tabs out of 10 opened (i.e.: 6 are queued): as soon as one of those completes downloading, start the next of those 6 are queued. This prevents failing to completely download long pages on slower connections.
