  • (2020-12-08) Patrick Kane: Perfect
  • (2020-12-01) Burak Turanal: Perfect
  • (2020-11-30) Sabrina Tasnim: I do love this extension. I can collapse everything instead of having 100 different tabs open - great for school. I used to have multiple windows open to make sure that my shopping tabs weren't getting lost in the school tabs. Now I can collapse them + label them to separate. However, I do feel like it has slowed down my Chrome and made it quite laggy since using this. I am guessing because I have bunch of dividers pinned, which consists ten-fifty tabs each. Now, it could be that this is a problem with my laptop itself. But this seems to be the only change I have made recently, which is what makes me doubt it.
  • (2020-11-29) Jakub P: doesnt work on windows, clicking it acts like a right click, send feedback is broken
  • (2020-11-27) Tricia Mauhay: I wish there will be an option to pin the tab so that I can still have it when I close the browser
  • (2020-11-07) Maeve Williams: It is hard to navigate and when you try to gather your tabs you usually get only one. there are better options on the web store
  • (2020-10-16) Sabrina Lopez: This extension is greattt! I used to use different windows for things and now i just have them all easy access! helped me organise my homework from my entertainment and social media! <3 its great! i definitely recommend. (edit) minor issue: it clutters your history :/ i still use it because my history isn't super important to me; it isn't something i check and go back to all the time, but if you go to your history a lot i suggest not to use this. <3 but i still highly recommend this :)
  • (2020-09-09) Imogen789: I really like this extension and I use it A LOT for my school. The only thing that I don't like that happened today was that I opened two windows of google and only one of them had my dividers. While in class today I saw I had two open and closed one without checking what one it was (I only hovered over the window and saw it was only a new tab page so I closed that one). After my lesson I clicked on the google window which was still open to find my dividers not there. I closed it and opened google again and they weren't there still. So then I shut down my laptop and tried again when I turned it back on. I still don't have them so my suggestion towards this is to make it available on multiple windows.
  • (2020-08-31) Jess: This app has made researching for assignments so much easier!! There is just one thing I am having trouble with, that is adding new tabs into these folders. I am not sure how to do this other than opening all the tabs again and placing them into a new divider, but that would be such a hassle. Surely there is another way... can someone please help me out and let me know if there is an easier way to add a new tab into one of the folders? Thank you!!
  • (2020-08-21) smashwolfbone 1331: Great Extension I would love if they could add a feature where you can remove the URL in the divider
  • (2020-06-23) Marketing TaticWeb: Essa extensão me ajuda muito! Obrigado...
  • (2020-03-29) Eddie Rosenblum: This is super helpful! One thing that could make it even better is to add the ability to select a hotkey to expand a focused divider tab, or at least make the favicon clickable by cycling through 'tab'!
  • (2020-03-25) David Shield: Best separator out there
  • (2019-11-22) Billie Thompson: I am one of those people who have multiple tabs open at once and have to click through all of them to figure out whats where. This is really easy (just click on the extension button and name your divider) and move it to where you need. You can have many dividers and what I found (and really love) is that when you click on that divider it will show you all open tabs and the names of the tabs so if you are doing a project for school and need to click through to get a source without spending 10 minutes clicking. Very simple design, very effective.
  • (2019-08-09) Sergey: There's a problem: after saving a divider with collapsed tabs to bookmarks and restoring it from there, all spaces in titles became url-encoded, i.e. I'm getting a whole bunch of %20's in the list.
  • (2019-03-28) Marc Taylor: Great addon, especially after modding it to not blow up my browser history.
  • (2019-01-30) Kristjan Janežič: Very nice. Setting custom icon would be nice.
  • (2019-01-21) Greg A.: They are great but when you turn off the extension and then turn it back on the all the tabs disappear (or when you open and close browser). How can they be saved forever in a Chrome window and restore them if needed. They don't seem to save.
  • (2018-12-19) Jon-Paul Berexa: This is so simple yet powerful, useful, and convenient. I love it. Combines well with session managers too.
  • (2018-12-05) Tristan Phipps: Simple & just what I was looking for
  • (2018-09-17) Kieran: I loved this app, then I saw what it was doing to my browser history. It basically obliterates your browser history with a bunch of spam, making history pretty much useless. If it weren't for this I would be using the app all the time.
  • (2018-09-01) Marcus: It's pretty handy, both as a tab separator and for session storage (in that you can collapse groups of tabs into a single tab, which you can even bookmark and open again later), but the fact that it keeps all the tabs in front of it in its URL is pretty obnoxious, as it quickly makes the URL for the divider tab enormous and can sometimes lead to the divider tab automatically redirecting to one of the URLs within its own or to a non-existent URL derived from one of the aforementioned URLs. It'd be nice if the extension had a better way to track the contents of the divider tabs, perhaps such as the option to store said contents locally under unique identifiers which their URLs could reference rather than just listing every other URL within their own.
  • (2018-07-31) Beam Davis: I liked it at first, until I saw what it was doing to my browser history. It adds all kinds of junk to the history, making it useless in my opinion.
  • (2018-07-26) Martin Svitek: I am using it at work, where I have to research multiple subject at once and thanks to this extension I can easily hide them for later.
  • (2018-07-04) Dan Nissenbaum: For research/learning, when there's 50 tabs open with a bunch for one topic, a bunch for another, etc., this is invaluable. Rather than being forced to 'manage your tabs' like most other extensions do, something along the lines of closing all related tabs into a group that you save later, this extension keeps them all open by default but still makes clear where the group starts and stops AND allows you to jump between groups easily - but the kicker for me is the ability to collapse the whole group (and only the group) into a SINGLE tab, so there is still a tab present, reminding you of its presence and ready to fly open into all of the tabs you've saved when you need them. One of my primary tab management extensions. I hope it becomes more and more popular.
  • (2018-06-15) Jacen Shu: whoa. I've used it for all of, what, 3 minutes? look at that 5 stars. all 5 stars. (you can customize the keyboard shortcut. I put mine as ctrl shift a.) I previously tried to use tab outliner and stuff. I thought this was something else. I had no idea how fantastic this would be. truly great (edit): WARNING: THIS APP CLUTTERS YOUR CHROME HISTORY LIKE CRAZY. this could be a good or bad thing but in my case, where I keep track of how long I work for by checking browser history, it was awful. I'll keep using the extension but I hope the developer tries to fix this. Edit: okay the history jamming is getting seriously annoying. they better fix this fast or I might uninstall. It's incredibly horribly annoying. History is just filled with multiple entries from the extension, every single minute. ...I also just noticed this was last updated 4 (FOUR) years ago. please. dev. I'm begging you. please update this. I love all the other features but the history cluttering is killing me.
  • (2018-04-14) Chao-Hsuan Chen: not bad
  • (2018-03-10) Captain Supersonic: Very simple and easy to use. Exactly what I was looking for. One request. Can you make it so I can somehow sort in alphabetical order the tabs in a tab group? That would be super useful.
  • (2018-01-29) Richard Yi: Also doubles as a program that transfers tabs between workplaces since all of the tabs are contained in the divider URL
  • (2018-01-04) Will L.: Great extension, simple and functional. I think a couple of features could make it even better though: 1) From a divider tab, enable dragging tabs from one group to another. 2) When tabs are closed to "collapse" a group, remember each tab's history, using the same method as the "Simple Undo Recents" extension to remember the history of a closed tab. 3) Add a shortcut and extension menu item for collapsing the group the current tab belongs to. Thanks for the extension!
  • (2017-12-02) Kavukamari: Really enjoying this one once I figured out how it worked. One problem I had is that when a page changes, sometimes the colored chips will randomly change color seemingly without reason, I try to set them to colors I'll remember and this makes that difficult to keep consistent. Otherwise a great extension, and it's really cut down on my number of tabs open at the same time.
  • (2017-10-18) George Meyer: unintuitive - other options that actually work without having to resort to googling how to use
  • (2017-10-02) Jeff Davis: I find this extension incredibly useful as far as it goes. I have at least a couple of dozen tabs open at any one time and this helps to categorize them, minimize tab real estate and free up memory. I have only been using it a couple of days but the first thing that I found myself searching for was a way to add a site to an existing tab group. When you collapse tabs into a divider all processes associated with that tab are stopped and the divider tab contains a set of links to each closed tab. This is nice as it allows you to click on a single link to access that tab without having to expand the divider. However, once a divider is created there does not seem to be a way to add a single site to that divider without first expanding it and thus firing off multiple processes as every site that the divider contains is contacted over the network. Once the divider is expanded you can place additional tabs in that dividers group and then collapse them all back into the divider, thus stopping all the processes that you just started. There needs to be a more efficient way to do this.
  • (2017-08-28) V Beers: It's very useful, but it'll freeze and crash after a long period of use and I'm not sure why. Also, it keeps injecting it into the browsing history, just adding clutter. Is it possible to prevent this somehow? I also hoped that the extension would remove the tabs from memory when collapsed somehow, but it doesn't seem to do so. Perhaps this is by design, but an option to allow this would be very helpful.
  • (2017-07-25) Marek Niemczyk: This is perfect! Allows easy with seperator tabs that can be renamed to anything.
  • (2017-05-25) Bruno Orsini: I love this extension but don't like the "favicon" you use as a divider... It's too similar to regular favicons! What *really* stands out and keeps things organized are perfectly blank, all-gray tabs instead -- like the extension "Tab Separator" does. Do you think you could implement this option? Thanks a ton!
  • (2017-05-07) William J Beard: Simple and convenient. Highly underrated extension.
  • (2017-04-19) Tanya B: It craps out often, and at the worst possible times. Use a backup session manager for those times when it fails to update the divider, fails to close the divided tabs and blows up your tab count, etc, etc. It simply will not work at times. It's great, when it works. Unfortunately its performance is very limited and unreliable. Often it simply fails to do what it was designed for, doesn't update the divider tab, etc. Refreshing doesn't make it update, or begin working. If not for this, I'd give it five stars. But its lack of dependability makes it quite difficult to use.
  • (2017-03-27) Geoffrey Chambers: The extension seems fairly bare bones; it gets the job done but could be improved with some additional features. There are two features that I think would improve the functionality of the extension. First, tabs should be grouped up with a defined start and end within a divider - perhaps the last tab in the series could have a bold right edge. The user could then "drop" tabs into this divider and have tabs beyond the divider, but not related to it, clearly separated. Second, the option to collapse all past a divider tabs to just the favicon would be helpful. This allows for a sleek, organized appearance for all of the users tabs.
