  • (2019-12-18) Jeff LovesEarth: nice and neat, I like it
  • (2019-10-29) Sun Eric: The "Filters" feature is great. The "Ignore Path" is especially useful when opening multiple pages in the same site. But there is one problem, seems file URL (html in my local computer) don't support the filter. Can this support be added?
  • (2019-09-18) Shawn D'souza: Does what i expect
  • (2019-06-22) Tomáš Madaj: The only one with the option to ignore query part! BUT, no possibility to whitelist domains :/
  • (2019-06-21) Erik Schick: It does exactly what I want with minimal setup. Perfect.
  • (2019-05-04) Muhammad Hariansyah: easy
  • (2019-03-31) Excellent extension, considers all possibilities of users needs.
  • (2019-02-24) Works but no context menu option, hence why not 5 stars.
  • (2018-12-10) Or Schiro: Eine tolle Erweiterung. Habe sie mal bei mir im Blog genauer beleuchtet: http://orschi.ro/tab-duplikate-schnell-aufspueren/
  • (2018-10-01) Mike Bilel: awesome
  • (2018-09-29) אמיר גלנטי: Please make it operate with one click. We can get to options by clicking the right click
  • (2018-09-15) Haruo Shimote: We have to set up option (e.g. close tab automatically) every time when open browser. Could you please save the option setting in next update? We would appreciate it If you could improve it.
  • (2018-08-13) Jay Goldberg: Super useful popdown UI that's responsive and lets you see the results of different kinds of filtering.
  • (2018-06-25) Michael Ryan: I think this extension has great potential, but there are some usability issues that need to be resolved. The icon should support a single-click action to clear tabs with the existing filter. Allow the user to right-click to access filter setting, but a left-click should just clear the tabs immediately.
  • (2018-06-09) Rafael Miranda: Excelente! Ajuda muito!
  • (2018-04-16) Nicholas Ord: This would be an absolutely cracking add-on, as it's the only one I've found that will treat links from the same domain (but different URL) as duplicates. BUT....it resets the filters when you close the browser, meaning you have to set it up each and every time you open the browser. If this could be addressed, this would be the best add-in in the web store for managing duplicate tabs

  • (2019-09-12, v:3.3.2) Simon Lennon: Blacklist
    Hi is there any way you add a blacklist (websites to be included, instead of excluded) to this extension. I really like the extension but have over 100 hundred whitelist rules now and its getting quite tedious having to keep adding them. I really only want to use this extension for a handful of sites so it would be great if I could just like the sites I wanted to use the extension with instead of having to exclude hundreds of websites, many thanks, Simon
  • (2019-09-12, v:3.3.2) Ray Waymore: Clicking in "Duplicate tabs" section doesn't really work?
    Is there some reason why left-clicking on the Duplicate tabs pane (after clicking the extension's button on the right corner) doesn't really seem to do anything? In other words, when clicking a duplicated tab title, it doesn't do anything. Why? It should of course focus on the particular tab then. And when clicking the X next to it, again it seemingly doesn't do anything. Except, it does, but it's just not updated on that view (the list doesn't change). Then again, going to the settings page of the extension (clicking the cog), now the list does work better. Clicking a title focuses on the tab. Though the X again doesn't remove the title from the list. Why not? Thank you very much.
  • (2019-09-09, v:3.3.2) Сергей Линник: Problem in Vivaldi
    duplicate tab successfully closed, but older tab remains not activated.
  • (2019-08-24, v:3.3.2) Royi Namir: Clicking on the icon
    Great extension however , it's really annoying to click it , and go to the bottom button. I've read what you've writtne to others about options accessebility. However , I disagree. You still have the right click to access options. you should use the left click to quick close tabs. The whole purpose is the save people time to close tabs manually. so if this extensions come to help , it should close tab with one click.
  • (2019-01-31, v:3.1.9) Zee M Kane: Request for exceptions
    Love the extension! Thank you. One request, to be able to add exceptions please? i.e. for some domains to be allowed to have duplicates. Thanks
  • (2018-06-15, v:3.1.5) Rafael Miranda: Settings are not Saved
    I do not know why this is happening, but the factory settings are always reset. I put it to "Automatically close tabs" but always returns to "Do nothing"
  • (2018-06-06, v:3.1.5) Yves T: settings preferences aren't saved
    hi, I have to update my settings preference every time I launch chrome. They are only saved until I quit chrome. can you fix it plz?
  • (2018-05-30, v:3.1.5) XEO XTH: More options please
    Please add the option to close the tabs only by clicking on the icon. Thank you, great extension.
  • (2018-04-12, v:3.1.5) Karim: Auto enable
    Settings not save and no way to auto enable the extension so not really useful at this stage. Thanks
  • (2018-04-06, v:3.1.5) Александр Сироткин: Settings
    Settings are not saved. After starting the default setting.
