Latest reviews

  • (2022-01-06) Pizaranha: I like the simplicity and style of this extension. However, I have found that pressing Ctrl + Shift + A chrome gives a similar feature 🥴.
  • (2021-03-20) Ankur Agrawal: Very useful extension. But the new chrome update includes a similar option for tab search.
  • (2021-01-05) Or Meidan: Amazing! An absolutely essential extension, one of the best out there. Literally every chrome user should install it.
  • (2020-11-06) Oswald Buddenhagen: with 70 tabs tried under brave on linux this is one of the two fastest "tab dropdown" extensions. unlike most extensions of this kind, it has no layout issues when the favicons don't work. the geometry is configurable. the list entries have the same height, so oversize ones will be truncated - if you prefer the opposite, try the VerticalTabs extension.
  • (2020-09-29) Shahed Faisal: Nice extension for navigating between tabs but the popup is sluggish to open.
  • (2020-07-03) Bruno Mamer: This used to be the BEST extension. As others have said, its simplicity and effectiveness was amazing. But recently seems to work less well. When searching for a tab with a keyword, the results show lots of tabs which as far I can see do NOT have that key word. Makes it a lot less useful. Has anything changed in the latest versions?
  • (2020-02-28) Aliaksei Kislou: Could be best extension for me due to simplicity and clean UI, but navigation through search results is broken. After tab search, when you press Up or Down keys, it behaves weird, skipping some results. Please fix it and I'll change to 5 stars. Otherwise good extension.
  • (2020-01-28) Souleigh: 好用,找的就是这个
  • (2019-12-19) S. Armstrong: After the update it is not possible to remove multiple tabs in the drop down menu - if you try to remove tabs near one another the last tab you removed returns. It is almost bad enough to find a replacement.
  • (2019-12-17) Sasa Cvijetinovic: Could be 5 stars, but new version has 2 issues: 1) When I search for "Facebook" tab it doesn't show it even if I have several FB tabs open, really strange (other searched tabs are shown, only FB not)... 2) It doesn't always delete the tab when I do the right-click... I wish I can have old version back.
  • (2019-12-11) D D: I discovered this extension a couple of months ago, and it quickly replaced Tabs Outliner as my preferred tab finder. The ability to quickly find-as-you-type is a real time saver. Unfortunately, the latest update has partially broken the search feature because a blank space always causes 0 hits. So if I type "New England", no tabs will show even if I have an open tab entitled "New England geography". I really hope this gets fixed. Quick Tab's effectiveness has severly diminished since the previous version.
  • (2019-12-06) Christos Prevezianos: All of a sudden, latest version you right-click and it starts moving tabs around without closing them?? I've been relying on this for years but now it's annoying and there's no option to revert to normal function in sight. Very disappointed with latest downgrade of an update and will probably remove.
  • (2019-10-27) Филипп Цеханский (Philipekum): Just what i needed. Modern-ish design, very easy interface and a shortcut. However, if you want more functional - search for another. This one is just a list.
  • (2019-08-09) Işınsu Sakallı: I tried this app to compare to the redbull quick tabs one I usually use. Some feedback for you pals working on this that might help: - UI looks great! Nice and clean. I like that you don't show the URL under the names. - I like that you can see across all windows. But for some reason one of my windows did not show up on the list. So I am kinda confused about the logic or it's just a bug. - The right click which instantly closes tab surprised me, and there was no way to undo. - I like that in quick tabs there is a tab counter which reminds me to clean my tabs and stay focused. I also like that there's a list of recently closed under the open tabs list. For these two reasons I'm gonna stick with the redbull, but hoping I can check this one out again in the future :D
  • (2019-03-23) Кирилл Фролов: I want quicktab to treat words withdiacritic marksand without them the same. For example i want to find page with word Pokémon, but quicktab doesn't find it when i search Pokemon. Please solve this problem.
  • (2019-03-08) I checked them all out. This one is great!!! Please add keyboard shortcut as already made on the github. That would be really great.
  • (2019-01-08) g.n .v: exellent
  • (2018-10-09) da lo: Would be great to have option to sort by alphabetical order.
  • (2017-09-01) N D: exellent app non others come close in functionality
  • (2017-07-25) Владимир: Best tab manager ever,thers didnt not needt features.
  • (2017-07-18) David Mankin: When you have 100+ tabs open, you probably ended up opening gmail several times. This now lets me find my existing gmail tab instead of opening a new one every time I need to check my email. UPDATE: It seems to only search the tabs of the current window. That's helpful but could be better if there was a way to search the tabs of all the windows at once. UPDATE2: Seems to be fixed! If you're looking for the source, you can find it here: https://github.com/tomlerendu/Quick-Tab
  • (2017-06-05) Malte Laurids Brigge: needs some basic functions like sorting, pinning, maybe close by domain... I'd say saving a group but that's pretty advanced. Good luck with it!
  • (2017-05-22) Klaus Ferreira: Great extension! I'm the one that usually has 40, 50 tabs opened at the the same time. That extension really helps. One tiny suggestion: you could make a way to reverse the tabs shown. At least for me, most of the time, the last ones are what I want to see first.
  • (2017-05-02) Pierre Schubert: Simple et efficace. Un peu difficile à trouver dans la jungle des extensions plus "complètes" mais pleines de fonctions dont je n'avais rien à faire. Quick Tab affiche une liste claire de mes onglets facilement et rapidement, avec une fonction recherche pour quand on a ouvert vraiment BEAUCOUP d'onglets. Parfait.
  • (2017-04-20) Júnior Silva: Very good! Everything I was looking for! Simple and objective! Great job!
  • (2017-04-16) Laila Agaev: Used to be one of my favourite extensions but no longer. It now doesn't show the tabs of the current window but ALL tabs of all windows, which is far less helpful.

  • (2017-02-16) pepper: it now lists all the tabs, not current window's
  • (2016-11-07) Safak Mert: Something missed on chrome (compared to Firefox). Simple and useful. Thanks.
  • (2016-08-01) Alessandro P: recent update ruined a perfect extension the ui is WAY TOO BIG WHAT A SHAME!!
  • (2016-06-20) Will Norman: it wasn't exactly what i was looking for, but it turns out it is exactly what i needed! this extension makes navigating multiple tabs a breeze.
  • (2016-04-08) Malcolm Cook: needs keyboard navigation to be useful. If I have to click to use it, I'm not going to use it. Bye!
  • (2015-11-24) Mirko Jäntti: Very good. Only thing what's missing, is some kind of an icon to show which tab is playing audio. When I'm having lots of tabs open, they get too small and won't show the audio-playing icon on the tab-bar anymore, so it would be nice to have them in the list.
  • (2015-08-21) Gregg Collins: Solves the problem as intended.
  • (2015-04-30) Daya Sharma: The interface is clean but not user friendly. Even if assign a keyboard shortcut thru Extension Management then also switching to a tab requires mouse interaction. Its a well known fact that keyboard shortcuts are more efficient to work with then mouse clicks
  • (2015-02-09) Guoliang Cao: It will be great if I can drag to reorder tabs in the tab dropdown.

  • (2020-06-29, v:5.3) phx studio: Quick Tab no longer opens correctly
    Quick Tab no longer opens. Instead of the box listing open tabs, a tiny white box appears. This is happening across google chrome stable (83.0.4103.116 (official build 64-bit)), google chrome canary (86.0.4186.0 (official build canary 64-bit). I have restarted both PC's, and tried reinstalling the extension. PC/MAC information is listed below, as well as disabling all extensions to rule extensions as a conflict. PC 1: Windows 10 Pro - 1909 (Build: 18363.836) 640bit CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K RAM: 32GB chrome stable (83.0.4103.116 (official build 64-bit)), google chrome canary (86.0.4186.0 (official build canary 64-bit)) PC 2: macOS Catalina - 10.15.5 (mac mini (Late 2012)) CPU: Intel Core i-7 Quad-Core @ 2.3Ghz RAM: 16 GB chrome stable (83.0.4103.116 (official build 64-bit)), google chrome canary (86.0.4186.0 (official build canary 64-bit))
  • (2020-06-22, v:5.3) Kathleen Maloney: Quick tab not opening
    Instead of the box listing open tabs, a tiny white box appears instead. There is sometimes a microsecond flash of the expected open tabs list, but it never fully materializes. Every time I try to use the Quick Tab button this happens. I have: restarted the computer, restarted Chrome, turned off/on the extension, removed/reinstalled the extension, and confirmed no updates are necessary to chrome. Am running Windows 10, and Chrome version (83.0.4103.116).
  • (2017-01-25, v:4.0) David Mankin: Search across windows
    It should be possible to search not just the tabs in a single window, but across all windows (of the current profile). Tabs Outliner has this capability so it is technically possible.
  • (2017-01-19, v:4.0) David Mankin: Should be able to search URLs too
    Sometimes I have a lot of tabs with identical titles ("Splunk 6.5.0") but the URL contains the search terms I need. So I'd like to be able to search for some keyword that's in the URL even if it's not in the title.
  • (2016-12-30, v:4.0) L: X to close tab
    Loving the simplicity of the app! But would it be possible to add an X to the left/right of a tab while mouse is hovering over it, to close the tab directly from the extension? Is it technically possible regarding Chrome limitations?
  • (2016-11-08, v:4.0) Force Flow: scrolling
    The Quick Tab drop down doesn't appear to be able to scroll using the mouse wheel any more. This stopped working after a Chrome update--possibly 52 or so.
  • (2016-09-25, v:4.0) Michał Piechuta: Tab list height and optional column view
    This addon could be useful with options to lenghten tab list down to bottom of the window and also to make tab list stack in columns instead of scrollable list. Right now there are better alternatives than Quick Tab.
  • (2016-01-13, v:2.0.1) Guofan Xu: Need a key shortcut
    can you add a key shortcut,like "ctrl+p" in sublime text or "double shift" in intellij?
  • (2015-03-14, v:2.0.1) Yannick Albert (yckart): Find across multiple windows
    I think this is a must have for this extension...
