Description from extension meta

A simple & lightweight tool to reduce tab clutter, using just the address bar.

Image from store Tab Extract
Description from store ● Too many disorganized tabs open? ● Slow to find the tab you're looking for? ● Want to reduce tab and window clutter quickly? Tab Extract helps you easily re-organize your tabs according to the subject or site, or quickly find a tab, or easily remove multiple tabs. How it works: Tab Extract will move all tabs from any window with a keyword match (in their URL or page title), into a new window. To use, type "ex" followed by a tab/space into the address bar, then enter keywords. ✓ "ex facebook news" will extract all facebook tabs and any tab with "news" or "facebook" in their title or URL, into a new window. ✓ "ex ." merges all tabs into the same window. This works because all URLs have a "." in them. ✓ Batch-remove tabs by extracting tabs to a new window using Tab Extract, and then closing the window. ✓ Tab Extract can merge tabs from across different windows into the same window by using a common keyword amongst the tabs. Notes: There is no need to select anything in the auto complete box, just press enter. If your Chrome has saved some "ex <keyword>" as a search term for autocomplete, clear your history.

  • (2021-04-05) a13ph: Does one thing well, for a decade already.
  • (2018-08-23) E s: This is the first extension I always install - whether I'm setting up a computer for me or someone else. Very powerful yet simple and lightweight, this is the functionality that should be built into chrome. Thanks for developing it!
  • (2018-08-14) Samuel Brasington: very nice extension. I am a developer and constantly have searches for dev technologies, and great to be able to group tabs by technology
  • (2018-07-03) Gage Adrian: Works perfectly. Absolutely genius.
  • (2018-06-28) Justin Reinhart: This is probably my favorite chrome extension. I've never had a complaint. Simple brilliance.
  • (2018-06-10) Hyperion Marshall: I use Tab Extract several times a day. I consider it essential. The only hitch is when a tab is not fully loaded - but this is not Tab Extract's fault - and when you're typing in your keyword, it will tell you in real time how many tabs fit into search criteria. Most of the time I do not even have to type in an entire word - just enough to differentiate, but on occasion adding the .com (or whatever) helps. One of the very best and hassle-free Extensions Chrome offers.
  • (2018-05-22) whole product: ujjhhh
  • (2017-11-27) Douglas Santos: a ideia é boa!!! mas pode ser aprimorado com mais funçoes!!! poderiamos separar as abas q queremos extrair atraves clicks sobre elas na barra guias e extrailas em uma nova janelas!!! varias de uma vez ou de uma em uma ate formar uma nova janela com as abas que queremos dentro dela!!!
  • (2017-05-17) Cindy Lai: I have > 100 tabs open all the time, hence I could never find the tab I need. With this plugin I can finally clean up my tabs in an efficient way! this plugin is fast too!
  • (2016-12-30) Nirut Tamchoo: EASY & WORKS !!! FANTASTIC !!!
  • (2016-03-05) I like ex a lot as it helps me organize all the tabs that are opened by bug trackers that I use. A feature I would like to see is the ability to remove duplicate tabs. It would also be neat if I could define shortcuts to common ex operations as I otherwise have to copy/paste the base art of urls for the tabs I want to merge., for example, all google docs into one window, all bugtracker tickets into a window.
  • (2016-03-01) Tim: It's amazing. You can move all Google search tabs from different windows into a new window quickly and close them all at once to free memory. Try ex tab q=
  • (2015-11-09) Francis York Morgan: Fantastic.
  • (2015-09-12) Najwa Laylah: Just installed and already like it. If it has no annoying quirks after a week, I will give it five stars. It does something that seems missing from TooManyTabs for Chrome and will complement it.
  • (2015-02-25) Christoph Wagner: Fantastic. Just what I was looking for. Completely unobstrusive UI, no extra button cluttering up my toolbar. Very flexible with the filtering. Great for power users.
  • (2015-01-21) Marcel Partap: small but useful. could use a "goto" keyword.
  • (2014-09-09) Rayna Kuzio: Easy to figure out...I've been using it, and organizing my junk doesn't seem as daunting! 100% a KEEPER
  • (2014-08-25) I like to pull apart tabs and put them back together with the "ex ." shortcut in the omnibar.
  • (2014-07-17) x Sass: Exactly what I was looking for! Thanks Google search results & TabEx developer(s)! :D I predict this is going to save me clicking through blank squished tabs many a time more!
  • (2014-03-05) Marlon Bong: Does one feature and does it well! Love it.
  • (2014-02-28) Sami Haahtinen: Wow, after searching high and low for a proper extension manager, this finally popped up on my radar. Exactly what I needed. And best of all, works without ever leaving the keyboard.
  • (2013-12-31) Alex Lee: Wish it did pinned tabs as well.
  • (2013-06-17) COW KING: great app!
  • (2013-05-07) Garrett Winters: Wonderful and useful...however, there's one issue...sometimes, when I use the command, it starts opening tons of windows with nothing in them before actually doing what it is supposed to do. All these windows do close, and a window does open that has the tabs I extracted, so it does work, but when it makes thousands of windows open it makes me panic slightly...do you know why it does this sometimes?
  • (2013-03-10) Riaz Ali: Very useful once you get the hang of it. Using 'ex .' is a great tip.
  • (2013-02-08) Jerry Rapp: It is a very useful extension if you have a lot of tabs open. However I would like to have an option to not grab pages that i have set as "applications" via chrome (tools/create application shortcut).
  • (2013-02-05) Jon Smithers: Quite handy! I wonder of regex would be a practical addition...

  • (2020-08-27, v:1.3.0) Richard Hodgson: Great Suspender support?
    Hey, would it be possible to add support for The Great Suspender? (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/the-great-suspender/klbibkeccnjlkjkiokjodocebajanakg) Right now Tab Extract seems to have issues extracting suspended tabs, likely because they're suspended. Obviously. I think I've seen other extensions able to access info from these suspended tabs when they're present, though I don't remember which right now.
  • (2020-05-05, v:1.3.0) Paul Dowsett: Can Tab Extract de-duplicate the browser.
    Great extension. Thanks for creating it. Can you tell me if there's a way for TE to move all duplicate tabs to a new window? Thanks
  • (2018-12-13, v:1.3.0) A B: Keywords
    Would love to be able to include multiple keywords to search. For example: Wordpress and WP to include both options. Also, I don't know if individual browser windows can be Identified, but it would be great to see the Keyword on the preview at least when selecting which window to open.
  • (2018-08-29, v:1.3.0) can I sort tabs but keep them all in the same window?
    As subject, but if it cannot, then do you have any recommendations for extensions that can do this?
  • (2018-06-03, v:1.3.0) Sowa Odwa: Does not working on UCbrowser (chinese clone of Chrome).
    After typing: ex and TAB - nothing happens. Can it be made compatible with UC Browser (program has an English version too), or add another way to run it? ps. Working good in SRWare IRON

  • (2017-04-16, v:1.3.0) Robert Jabaay: Doesn't perform at all
    I click on the extension and I get no prompting, I click tab extract and go to the webstore? Only other options are to remove or hide it. Is it current?
  • (2017-04-14, v:1.3.0) Andy M: Support for Vivaldi
    I've recently made the switch to Vivaldi and while many chrome extensions work I was disappointed to find that Tab Extract (which is one of my favorites and most used) does not. Would you consider supporting Vivaldi?
  • (2017-03-15, v:1.3.0) Sami Haahtinen: Option to include pinned tabs
    While I like the fact that there are no configurable options, I wish I was able to include pinned tabs in the extraction. My normal workflow goes something like this. Throughout the day I run 'ex something' and at the end of the day I run 'ex .' to consolidate the leftovers. This usually leaves the pinned tabs in a separate window, which means I have to manually move them or re-open them to have them all in a single window.
  • (2016-09-14, v:1.3.0) Hans Maulwurf: active?
    Is this still in active development? Core function seems to work and extremely usefull
  • (2015-01-21, v:1.3.0) wildcards/regex
    Can I use wildcards or regex? Want to extract google mail and google translate into their own window but I can't seem to do it. What keyword sequence should I be using?
  • (2014-03-27, v:1.3.0) Michael Hsu: Not working still?
    I'm on the dev beta of Chrome. Tab extract comes up, but nothing happens.
