Description from store # INTRODUCTION Quick Tabs is a tab management browser extension for the Google Chrome web browser based on the "Recent Files" quick selector built into the excellent IntelliJ IDEA by Jetbrains. Quick Tabs allows you to move quickly between recently used tabs without requiring the use of your mouse, locate and switch to tabs as you need them with minimal keystrokes even when you have large numbers of open tabs. Visit the [Quick Tabs](https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/jnjfeinjfmenlddahdjdmgpbokiacbbb) google extensions page to install and try it out ... # FEATURES * Lists all the open tabs in Chrome across all of your open windows * Tabs are listed in most recently used (MRU) order and excludes the current tab (since you're switching tabs) * Fuzzy search your bookmarks: * Bookmarks are automatically searched when only a few tabs match your search string * Add a space at the start or end of your search string to search bookmarks along with tabs * Start your search with `/b` or add **two spaces** at the start or end of your search string to search only bookmarks * Fuzzy search your browser history: * Start your search with `/h` or add **three spaces** at the start or end of your search string to search browser history * Find noisy tabs by searching for `<))` * Chrome keyboard shortcuts (configured using the keyboard shortcuts dialog at the bottom of the Chrome Extensions page): * Shortcut key to launch popup window from most tabs (default ctrl+e, cmd+e on Mac, ctrl+q on Linux). * Select previous tab without loading the popup window (unmapped by default) * Select next tab without loading the popup window (unmapped by default) * IMPORTANT the 'next tab' shortcut is only available for a second or so (while the badge text is orange) before the current tab is moved to the top of the MRU list. * Tab list popup shortcut keys: * Select previous tab (same as Chrome keyboard shortcut or up arrow) * Select next tab (same as Chrome keyboard shortcut or down arrow) * Switch to selected Item (enter) * To close selected tab (default ctrl+d, see extension options) * Displays the number of tabs you currently have open in all your Chrome windows * Quickly search and select tabs by typing letters in the page title or url * Track recently closed tabs and allow them to be searched and restored * Popup customization using css # COMMANDS Commands start with a `/` and can be typed in the popup window search box to tweak the search behaviour or perform actions on tabs; ### Query Commands * `/b <query>` - search bookmarks * `/h <query>` - search browser history * `/w <query>` - search the tabs in the current window only * `/p <query>` - search pinned tabs only ### Search Types You can now change the search type for a single search, this can help if you have a specific search string in engine combo in mind. * `/fuzzy <query>` - use the fuzzy search engine for this query only * `/fuse <query>` - use the fuse search engine for this query only * `/regex <query>` - use the regex search engine for this query only * `/subs <query>` - use the subs search engine for this query only ### Tab Management Tab management commands all accept RegExp search queries. * `/close <query>` - search for and close tabs * `/merge <query>` - merge tabs into the current window * `/split <query>` - split tabs and move them into a new window * `/reload <query>` - reload all of the tabs in the search result * `/mute <query>` - mute the tabs in the search result * `/unmute <query>` - unmute the tabs in the search result # PERMISSIONS Quick Tabs requires the following: * **Read and change your browsing history**: _read only_ access is required to record your open tabs and search browser history. * **Read and change your bookmarks**: _read only_ access is required to search and display your bookmarks. # SCREENSHOTS #### Quick Tabs ready for action. ![Popup Screenshot](screenshots/in_action.png?raw=true) #### Tab and bookmark search. ![Search Screenshot](screenshots/searching_tabs.png?raw=true) #### History search. ![Search History](screenshots/searching_history.png?raw=true) Search your browser history by starting your search with '/h ' or adding 3 spaces to the end of your search query. #### Decide what to show. ![Search History](screenshots/go_minimal.png?raw=true) #### Custom CSS styling. ![Search Screenshot](screenshots/custom_css.png?raw=true) In this case https://userstyles.org/styles/99938/better-styling-for-chrome-extension-quick-tabs by @Bunnyslippers.

You can also install it manually if you want to be certain that the source code on github is directly what you install. Note, this will NOT automatically update the extension when bugs are fixed and features are added. In your terminal, `cd` to the folder you want to clone it to, and run `git clone https://github.com/babyman/quick-tabs-chrome-extension`.

Latest reviews

  • (2020-07-30) Microtribute: Highly recommended as one of must-have tools. This is extremely useful and make my life easier. I can't thank you enough to Evan. This tool must be built into Google Chrome out-of-the-box.
  • (2020-07-24) Clemens Ratte-Polle: very fast and simple :) Perhaps also always show a closed tabs list 50%? Does your addon show Tab Preview per Dropdown ?
  • (2020-06-30) jåW dîN: Every few months I revisit the tab management and switching space. Quick Tabs is consistently my favorite. It's actually fast and it stays out of your way. When there's not an open tab, it sanely searches through your closed tabs, then bookmarks, then google! It's got a modern, updated library for fuzzy finding (fuze). If I could give it 60 stars I would (5 for each time I decide it's awesome again).
  • (2020-06-30) Jane Kovalska: it is the worst
  • (2020-04-05) Yan Li: Greatly improved my productivity. Recently, I discovered that I have to add three spaces at the end of the query to search my history. I remember the history is always included in search result. Anyway, it's a great tool and I recommend it.
  • (2020-04-04) P GS: no sorting?
  • (2020-04-01) Richard Taylor: Works well with no issues or bugs.
  • (2020-03-05) Andrei Tulusniuc: ok
  • (2020-02-25) Sing Hui Tan: Will it be possible to place a separator to segment out the tabs that belong to e.g. Windows 1, Windows 2? I have 3 windows open and it is a long list for me =X And I do want to know when I click on a link to a tab, which window that tab is on?
  • (2020-02-14) Mike DeSimone: does one thing and does it spectacularly! recently closed tab list is great when i accidentally cmd-w a tab!
  • (2020-02-11) John Hossbach: This extension has an interoperability issue with TeamSync Bookmarks. Every time I save a new bookmark, Chrome locks up for 5-10 seconds. The high CPU PID according to Chrome Task Manager is Quick Tabs. TeamSync Bookmarks: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/teamsync-bookmarks/bcopfejjlalhckdkmofjciemgnjkffhj
  • (2020-02-10) Ronald Ian Bantayan: helps me organize my gargantuan pile of tabs. maybe a cool feature would be to display OTHER tabs across my other devices??? that would be awesome.
  • (2020-01-14) Vincent Yee: 搜索书签的功能很好用,但是缺点是美观度不够
  • (2020-01-08) Byungjik Roh: Recently active tab moved right most position by itself and it was very annoying. I thought it was new update from Chrome but couldn't find any issue on web. Then I finally found out that Quick Tabs causes this situation. Turn off 'Move tab to rightmost position on switch' on Quick Tabs options. PS. Developer has known this issue and will fix it soon. (https://github.com/babyman/quick-tabs-chrome-extension/issues/296)
  • (2020-01-06) Hien Nguyen: Simple and useful for ones that constantly have many tabs opened in Chrome.
  • (2019-12-27) 012wtf EZ: It would be good if you had the option not to list separate pages of the same website, ie rather have the option to show each website as one entry
  • (2019-12-20) Tom: Great. Love that the tab search can also include bookmarks and even become a generic google search. Thanks to bAbymAn who has also generously open-sourced it, keeps up with issues, and handles permissions well.
  • (2019-12-16) Jim S: Been using this for several days and absolutely love it. I often have upwards of 50+ tabs open and this has greatly reduced the amount of time I am flipping through tab after tab to find the exact one I am looking for. The real strength is in the fuzzy searches. I use the "<((" to find all of the YouTube tabs that will randomly start playing after a refresh so I can mute/stop them from playing. I sincerely wish I had found this years ago!!!
  • (2019-12-08) Anton Timoshenkov: Удобно и просто
  • (2019-12-07) Anıl Yuvalı: If you would like to search for your open tabs quickly, this is the best extension you can find. Trust me, i tried it all.
  • (2019-11-23) just sayin: Excellent!! Feature request: add support to pin tabs, to keep them near the top of the tabs list, for quick access. These tabs should be highlighted.
  • (2019-11-23) Frank Cantafio: At first I installed it and didn't pay much attention to it, but now I use it! It is extremely valuable to me, because it helps me find the tabs with sound. I seemed to have a ton of open tabs at once. It was very difficult to quickly turn off any tab with sound such as youtube when I didn't need it. Thank You for this!
  • (2019-11-15) Xuân Nguyễn: This App should exist
  • (2019-11-12) Gabe O'Leary: This is probably the most useful and necessary extension I have on Chrome. It saves me so much time and many headaches while navigating around my cluttered browser windows and tabs. :)
  • (2019-10-13) Richard Hoefer: Does anyone know the CSS code to display Quick Tabs in a Dark Mode? I don't know how to create a style, but I see on the OPTIONS page the window to add style code. This seems like a good extension, but I am still trying to sort out this extension from so many other Tab-related extensions I use for different purposes (such as Save Sessions, etc). I marked 3-stars because I have this installed, but I don't really use it because I haven't been able to experiment with all the other Tab extensions I have which do other things, and I'd wish for at most 1-2 extensions total that manage Tab related actions, because it's too hard to remember what each of them do.
