Click on delete to delete the title. In Regex section, add/update regex and the corresponding title and press "Save" eg: /.*google.*/ matches all the websites which has the term google in the url, /*/ matches all websites *some websites keeps updating the title on some events (eg: gmail.com updates title whenever hangouts gets initialized and whenever someone pings) this addon doesn't work in such cases as i didn't add the polling. If have any workaround for this please do mention in the comments.. thanks If you have any suggestion for shortcut. Please mention it in the comments and the reason why it is better.

  • (2020-08-27) KONGOU 3: Is there a limit to the number of tab titles that can be saved? I have saved hundreds of titles so far. But recently I realized that I can no longer save. If the limit is set, please remove it. Or please tell me the file name of the local file where the settings are saved. Thank you.
  • (2020-03-29) Tim Hueller: I wanted an extension that would rename a tab for YouTube history to "History - YouTube" from the Google-forced "YouTube". I tried a few and none of them worked. Then I tried Rename Tab Title and my search ended. :) Now every time I go to my YouTube history, boom: the tab title changes to "History - YouTube". Thank you, Anush Veeranala! Edit: Now it's no longer holding the title of "History - YouTube". It holds it for a while, but after some indeterminate amount of time, it goes back to "YouTube". I can never predict when it will do that. Back to the proverbial drawing board...

  • (2019-01-14) Pairs Doll: 这个插件很方便,我做淘宝的工作,先打开多个产品网页,用Rename Tab Title重命名每个标签为产品的名称,然后用Onetab保存所有网页,以后用Onetab再可以一次打开所有重命名的网页,方便工作。

  • (2018-05-07) Val Ellis: tabs randomly change back to their original title and whenever you click a new link and one of the main features doesn't even work
  • (2017-11-11) Mark Kehn: I use a bookmarking website called Tagpacker to keep my favorites in the cloud. Although this extension does work, this site I use breaks the extension in the sense that they constantly refresh the site which causes the renamed browser tab to revert to normal naming. Can you fix this extension so that the renamed tab persists until the tab itself is closed, no matter how many times the tab is refreshed? I sure hope so. Thanks in advance.

  • (2017-08-24) Сергей Викторыч: Can you add another extension, that automatically uses bookmark title of page for tab title. So when I save bookmark google.com f.e. as "Start page", tab title automatically becoming "Start page", when rename bookmark to "Searcher", tab becomes "Searcher" and so on.
  • (2017-08-13) NET: The tab name changes after clicking save. F5 to refresh and the changed tab name goes away.
  • (2017-06-20) Don Nguyen: Does exactly what it says. I can now easily rename my tabs, helping me manage and remind myself what each tab is for!
  • (2017-04-28) Chad Bishop: All I wanted was a simple tool to rename tabs that had very similar urls. This was the only tool that I could get to work and yet it was the simplest to use. I don't write reviews often enough, but I felt this fully deserved it.

  • (2020-12-01, v:1.2) Phil Bryant: Websites overwrite the tab name when navigating internally
    I've set a tab name of Azure for portal.azure.com. But when I navigate internally by clicking on Event Hubs, the tab name is overwritten. This happens even when I have set a regex. Same happens for many other sites such as Gmail
  • (2020-10-26, v:1.2) Sergiu: Question regarding implementation
    Hello. Great work with the extension. I have to update the tab's title while working on one of my extensions. I've search for an API to do it, but it seems that is not possible to change tab's title with `chrome.tabs.update()`. Do you mind pointing me in the right direction of how you've implemented it? Thanks.
  • (2020-05-14, v:1.2) Craig Lambie: RegEx
    Hi mate, Great idea for an extension - so many sites name the page title wrong... I often end up with 8 tabs the same name. Xero are useless.... my main bug bear atm. So I am using https://www.regextester.com/ to make sure my RegEx is working with the URL I am looking at. Except it isn't working. If I save the one URL it works, but I want it to change the title on any sub page, etc. anything relating to the URL part I am looking at. In this case URLs (adjusted for privacy) https://go.xero.com/BankRec/BankRec.aspx?accountID=CAFA-4033-AA25-D51869B6F6F6&blah https://go.xero.com/Bank/BankTransactions.aspx?accountID=cafa-4033-aa25-d51869b6f6f6&blah RegEx: /.*(CAFA-4033-AA25-D51869B6F6F6)/ig or /.*(CAFA-4033-AA25-D51869B6F6F6) Both work in RegEx tester website, but not in the extension. Your extension does work if I save the URL, for exactly that URL only, if case changes, it doesn't work anymore, hence moving to RegEx. Help...please.

    I used the tool to rename my youtube tab, but it changed back after the video switched via playlist. I need the title to stay no matter what happens.
  • (2019-05-22, v:1.2) Avi Baron: Regex tab renaming
    Hi, Maybe I don't understand the original intent. I'm looking to rename all tabs that meet requirements of a regular expression and I want the result to be part of the original tab title. E.g. I often have multiple tabs open that start with a string that matches this expression: "^Ticket - T[0-9]{8}\.[0-9]{4} - " I'd like the part of the title that matches that expression to be removed from the tab title. Is this possible? Thank you so much for your work, I know creating extensions is often a thankless job.
  • (2018-07-20, v:1.2) triccare triccare: Does not rename file: pages
    I have apps that create temporary pages for displaying output. A typical URL is below. Sometimes I can rename these, but often I cannot. Example: file:///private/var/folders/z7/hcykr_n546s_5033t9rj5d200000zj/T/tmphzjfz6q8/table.html
  • (2018-07-19, v:1.2) Holger Galuschka: regex
    How is the syntax of the regex? Is it possible to use i.e "1.2.3.\([0-9]*\):[0-9]*/" and "\1-\2"?

  • (2017-06-30, v:1.0) Patrick Kilgore: Regex support
    Can you add regex or basic wildcard support for this extension (e.g. anything matching /google.com/ == houli). If you point me to the code I can send you a PR!
