Description from store Thanks for writing reviews, sending your feedback or posting questions/suggestions and bug reports! PREMIUM LICENSE NOTICE!!! ------------------------------------------------ As you may know, developing, maintaining and enhancing this extension takes precious time. I do take it seriously and respond to every message sent to me through the extension support and review pages, meaning I care about the user experience. Also, I really enjoy making people's lives easier. That being said, after several years (the extension exists since 2011) offering this extension for free, I decided it is time to charge a symbolic, ONE-TIME-ONLY, amount for it. It is not a subscription, nor a monthly or yearly paid amount. It is a "pay once, use forever" license, simple like that ;-) Fair enough, I believe. So here is how it works. Users with a FREE license (default) get limited functionalities: the interval between each tab opening is set to a fixed value (1.5 seconds); the list of search engines cannot be edited and only the first one can be used; none of the options (in the Options page) can be changed; in the main extension popup, it is not possible to select any different search engine other than the first available and the number of words that can be searched for or websites that can be open are limited to only two (2), regardless of how many of them are typed/pasted. Users with a PREMIUM license have no restrictions at all. Simply put, users without a premium license can try the extension before paying the premium license. PAYMENT AND LICENSE VERIFICATION ------------------------------------------------ The payment popup is developed by ExtensionPay (https://extensionpay.com), a service that handles the user login and verification on whether a user has already paid or not. The payment and credit card handling itself is then performed by Stripe (https://stripe.com), a serious, well known, global payment system. Neither this extension nor ExtensionPay store any credit card information. In case you find any issues purchasing the license through the extension itself, we could arrange a payment via PayPal as a secondary option. In this case, please send me an email at "multipletabssearch at gmail.com", including your PayPal ID (email address) for payment verification and the email address you wish to use to activate your premium license. RELEASE NOTES ------------------------------------------------ v2.0.1 (2021-07-09) - Small bug fix v2.0.0 (2021-07-07) - It is now possible to select the search engine to be used, directly on the main extension page. The list of available search engines to be used can be edited in the Options page, with as many entries as you wish. - Removed banner from the main extension page. - The extension is now a paid product, with some free features available for you to try before purchasing a premium license. v1.7.0 (2019-11-11) - In the Options page, added possibility to specify a random interval range so that each tab opens between a minimum and maximum random time. This is to help avoid search engines asking for Captchas. v1.6.0 (2018-08-13) - An Options page has been added to the extension, where some parameters can be set by the user. Right-click the extension and choose Options. - The extension is no longer limited to searching using Google! \o/ It is now possible to configure a search engine query in the Options page, so that any web site can be used in the search. E.g: Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Yahoo, Google Maps, Google Images, etc. Anything, really. Scroll down to see some examples. - A new 'Extra parameters' input field has been added, making it possible to do things like excluding websites other than the pre-configured ones, or adding parameters to URLs. When searching, the text typed in the extra parameters field will be included as search terms in the query. You can try things like common search terms or custom exclusion terms/websites (in the form of ' -term1 -website1 -website2'...). When opening, the text will be added to the end of the URLs. Useful if you want to pass query string params like ?p1=value1&p2=some other value. - It is now possible to specify a prefix to be added automatically to URLs that are not fully qualified (i.e. do not start with http:// or other valid scheme). - It is now also possible to configure the interval, in milliseconds, between each tab opening, so that the chosen search engine is not hit so hard, consequently avoiding to being asked for Captchas. - Removed domain extension configuration from the extension popup, since now the search engine query is completely configured in the Options page. DESCRIPTION ------------------------------------------------ Do you know when you have a list of words to search for, or a list of URLs to open, and you think "Holy crap, here we go again opening several tabs manually, one for each search / URL ..."? This is so annoying and time consuming, isn't it? Multiple Tabs Search extension solves this issue for you by letting you type or paste several words/terms or URLs and then open them all automatically, each one in a separate tab. Give it a try! This extension is specially helpful for those who search a lot for music (MP3, videos, etc), since it lets you remove some well known websites from the search result. TIPS / USAGE ------------------------------------------------ * TIPS FOR THE SEARCH ENGINE QUERY - When setting your custom search engine queries, make sure you include the keyword {{MTS_WORD}}, exactly as it is, in the right place where you want your search terms to appear in the query. That is a reserved, arbitrarily chosen, word to be replaced by the extension with the search terms you type. If you do not include that keyword, the extension will add the search term simply to the end of the query. - Examples of search engine queries: Google: https://www.google.com/search?q={{MTS_WORD}} Google Images: https://www.google.com/search?tbm=isch&q={{MTS_WORD}} Google Maps: https://www.google.com/maps/search/{{MTS_WORD}} https://www.google.com/maps/place/{{MTS_WORD}} Bing: https://www.bing.com/search?q={{MTS_WORD}} DuckDuckGo: https://duckduckgo.com/?q={{MTS_WORD}} Yahoo: https://search.yahoo.com/search?p={{MTS_WORD}} NOTICE ------------------------------------------------ - When typing / pasting URLs, keep in mind that only fully qualified URLs are open correctly. E.g.: instead of www.somewebsite.com, type http://www.somewebsite.com; It works with other URI schemes too, such as file:///, ftp://, and more. In case some URLs are not fully qualified or you are just not sure, you can let the extension add a pre-configured prefix to the URLs that do not have one ;) - This extension stores, locally in your browser internal storage, all the values you type into the options and the options you select on the extension popup window and in the Options page, including the web sites you have chosen to remove from the search result, the extra parameters, and the search terms/URLs in case you disable the option "Clear words after Search/Open". If one wants to reset these options, there is a "reset" button in both places. - This extension does not keep any personal data neither sends any information you type to third party services. - A delay in milliseconds is used between each tab creation. This is for not hitting Google too hard and also to avoid browser to become unresponsive. The minimum interval is 300 and the maximum is 10000 milliseconds (10 seconds).

  • (2022-03-09) Jimmy: Hello there, I wish I could love this extension, but there is this big issue stop me from doing this. When I tried to search 6 keywords and open them in 6 tabs, why does it open only the first 2 keywords and ignore the others? Can you work this out?
  • (2021-12-16) Okrutny_Okrutnik: I loved it, but do not why its not working anymore.
  • (2021-12-07) Enregistri files: Unfortunately, before I could use more than 10 tabs, but now only 2 ://. I'm really disappointed
  • (2021-11-29) Nandkishor Panchal: Its very useful but right now it cant open more than two searches
  • (2021-11-25) Hi Luiz, Hope you are doing great. I loved this tool and I just wanted to know is there is any paid version of this tool. If you have some plans for the corporate businesses, then ping me up at my email i.e. [email protected] Regards, Dheeraj
  • (2021-11-10) Rosh McC: So now you have to pay a small one-off fee to use this add-on - it's definitely worth it. This add-on will save you precious time - we need to remember that it takes the developer time to develop and update this add-on. Great idea! Thanks so much!
  • (2021-10-18) Murali Madhavan: One of the best extensions. So simple and easy to use. I'm a paid customer. I had problem with payment but the developer was quick to respond and get me through the process. If you do serious web search, this is the extension for you.
  • (2021-09-09) JC Garcia: Hi it only opens 2 tabs? what can I do? Thanks
  • (2021-09-06) CHIRAG SINGHAL: Well It's has been made a paid app. nothing provided in the free version.
  • (2021-07-31) Fabrizzio Andrioli: Todo muy lindo, hasta este año, ahora pide pagar para hacer algo.
  • (2021-07-29) Vaishali Patil: It was working well before. But as I used it recently, only 2 URLs or 2 Searches are working. Is it because I am using free version. Or some bug issue? (Version - 2.0.1)
  • (2021-07-17) Sagar Sharma: HI I have been enjoying your extension Luiz. I mainly used your extension to search multiple keywords to track rankings on various keywords. I just copied and pasted the keywords and the extension has saved me a lot of time solving captca and otherwise. However, I have recently encountered a problem. The extension is not opening more than 2 tabs at a time. I dont know if it is a bug or just some browser issue. Please revert!
  • (2021-07-14) Justin Mosebach: It was perfect until they started charging for it, without releasing any new features. They stripped the features away in the free version, making it useless.
  • (2021-07-14) Tanuj Kumar: Worked Amazingly, but stopped working recently :( Using it on MacBook Pro. Doesn’t work anymore! Please assist.
  • (2021-07-13) Nickster65: Was really nice and I used it weekly until it became a paid product, not its completely useless unless you shell out the money. Like you could've at least made it so tabs search a lot slower and the limit was like 20, but the limit is literally 2 right now for what i'm trying to do, which makes it completely useless. Will find an alternative I guess
  • (2021-07-09) Greg Heapy: was a very good extension and then updated to include a paywall for previously free features. best to look elsewhere.
  • (2021-07-08) Fon Ramos: Si no pagas no te deja hacer nada
  • (2020-12-22) April: Great application! This will save our family about 30 min per day searching multiple libraries for books available. Before using the app we needed to enter the same search parameter in multiple tabs. Now we just need to enter a key work and all tabs are opened in a single click! Thank you
  • (2020-12-09) ARSAM AZIZ KHAN NIAZI: It is slow in opening diffrent queries each in a new tab
  • (2020-03-23) Abishek Maji: I really love this Extension....because this is very helpful for me...
  • (2020-03-11) Jesse Gardner: simple, i use the it to google a list of keywords at the same time
  • (2020-02-18) ANRK ALT: works perfectly.
  • (2019-12-22) Ted E.: Really nice extension! Very useful. I use it a lot. Would it be possible to add the ability for me to enter multiple search engine urls and have it search for one term, possibly picking up that term from the clipboard?
  • (2019-07-02) Asly Zenitram: La aplicación te obliga a escribir uno a uno todos los enlaces para abrirlos, no está en español y en ocasiones falla. Es poco intuitiva. Si no fuera porqué es útil en casos muuuuy raros y puntuales, le daría 1 sola estrella (del resto del tiempo es completamente inútil)
  • (2019-06-15) bharath balu: Does it only works for Google..? Is there any this type of extension for Bing Browser which is of Microsoft..? If you find any such tool which open multiple tabs in bings at a time please mention here it will be helpful for us. Thanks, Bharath
  • (2019-04-05) Jorge: sencilla y útil solución. GRACIAS!!
  • (2019-01-26) Rudy Gallegos: This extension is very useful. However, it is not so much user friendly. If you click out of the tab it closes despite multiple searches in the box. This is very frustrating.
  • (2018-10-17) Yana Marinova: I've been searching for an extension like this for ages.
  • (2018-10-15) Well supported!
  • (2018-09-27) Claudio Raphael: Uma das melhores extensões que ja vi na Web Store. Faz exatamente o que eu preciso.
  • (2018-08-22) Ekta Patel: I really loved this extension but it isn't working anymore..?!
  • (2018-06-27) Ling Hwa Hing: Awesome for bulk searching and URL opening.
  • (2017-07-19) David Maaliw: awesome
  • (2017-07-10) Tom Ka: Incredible
  • (2017-06-01) zim khan: very useful
  • (2017-04-14) Warmuser: Really useful! I tried these extension on different Chromium versions. Works perfectly! But, I want to request to add the possibility to add some search engine as default search. Anyway, I want to ask you If it is possible for the developer to build also a Social version of these extension. A sorta of "Multiple Social Tabs". Thanks! :)
  • (2017-02-05) Charlie Wojtas: This is beautiful
  • (2017-01-28) Meli Me: Great! But after using it for a few lists of mine, I am receiving a message that I have to Chapta and it just won't give the search results.... :( What should I do? I really need something done fast
  • (2016-12-21) Jessie: awsome
  • (2016-12-09) mehdi shokati: Thank you very much for awesome and helpful extension. Can I use this extension in Firefox or is there similar extensions in Firefox for bulk search? Best, regards
  • (2016-11-15) Charles-Louis Van Damme: Excellent for bulk search! You deliver what you promise: multiple search terms > each google search result opening in a seperate tab. It would be great if a generic search term, used in every query, like a search theme (e.g. "food") could be added.
  • (2016-11-14) Gersivan Oliveira: Funcionalidade da extensão é muito restrita, raramente necessária. Falta tecla de atalho para abrir a janelinha popup de busca.
  • (2016-09-28) Martha Geiger: Very helpful for people who regularly conduct bulk searches with similar queries. Doubles my productivity because I don't have to retype or copy and paste each individual query. It would be a ton more helpful if there was a "site:" preference, one that isn't limited to a few hand chosen websites.
  • (2016-09-13) Sergey Linz: Awsome tool for bulk searching!! It would be nice if you automatically add http protocol for url without it. If you don't have time, could you share the github repo url, so I'll make the contribution
  • (2016-06-07) Apple Tree: So awesome! This app saves my life. Thank the suthor! Recomandation: It can open each tab at a specifeied interval(say,3 secs),so that google may not regard it as abnormal access attempt.
  • (2016-06-03) Rich Sulin: Works great. Thank you Luiz! In the "Google domain" input box, we can include search parameters. I do this to get to the Shopping portal, e.g., .com/search?tbm=shop Luiz, could you please make that input box wider? Also, add eBay.com as one of the sites to exclude?
  • (2016-01-22) Leslaw Fiutowski: google.com.br only
  • (2016-01-21) Matt Burnham: searches google.com.br but otherwise works properly

    Hey, I bought two of these from you for two different browsers and its great. Google however blocks it when multiple pages open. Im trying to see how many I can get away with before it asks if Im a robot. I was wondering if a timer placement might work. A setting where you put perhaps a few seconds between each search.

  • (2021-07-08, v:2.0.0) Víctor Jiménez: The extension doesn't work
    I've been using this extension for Chrome for about a year and it was working perfect (copy-paste links and the program opened all them perfectly), but yesterday it stopped working. Now it only opens a single link, not all the links from the list. I've tried to restart Chrome, uninstall the extensions and installing it again. Nothing works. I didn't install or unistall any program from my computer these days, so I don't know why this is happening all of sudden. I'm using Windows 7 32-bit.

  • (2021-01-16, v:1.7.0) Awerkamp Family: Searching multiple sites same time
    I also love Tom Lahey's request (Dec 7) for the ability to query multiple sites with one search. It would be powerful to setup search groups so one can decide which group they want to search with a query. It would be better than Google because you only add credible domains to include in your search. For example, if you want to search how to fix something on your computer you send the search to Stack Exchange, Reddit, ect. If you want to do a news search, you can search Reuter's, C-SPAN, Associated Press, CBS, The Economist, ect. Perhaps better to have as a separate extension because multiple queries against multiple sites might get confusing.
  • (2020-12-08, v:1.7.0) Tom Lahey: Effort required for extension that displays results in 5-10 sites
    I am not that technical, but want an extension that takes 1 specific word and searches multiples sites and displays the results in tabs example; word = kidney https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/?term= https://search.cdc.gov/search/index.html?query= https://vsearch.nlm.nih.gov/vivisimo/cgi-bin/query-meta?v%3Aproject=medlineplus&v%3Asources=medlineplus-bundle&query= So there would be 3 new tabs displaying the results for kidney in the 3 sites. What are your thoughts, how much time\effort for you to do something like this?
