Clone Tab

Description from extension meta

Duplicate your current tab with a click or custom keystroke, complete with full navigation history.

Image from store Clone Tab
Description from store Duplicate your current tab via button or command (I personally use CTRL+T to replace Chrome's built-in new tab behavior). This extension does more than others in the Chrome Extension Store in that your entire tab's navigation history and browsing context is also duplicated. Great way to fork your current browsing session! Make like Dolly and start cloning!

  • (2018-11-25) Chaz Allen: After you install, assign a keyboard shortcut! I use Cmd + D :)
  • (2018-07-16) Chap Harrison: One complaint: the "Dolly the sheep" icon in the toolbar looks like a faint piece of fuzz. A more iconic and high-contrast icon would be helpful.
  • (2016-05-19) F. Ly.: Very good, but to be perfect it needs to be included in context menu!
  • (2015-11-09) Arthur Klepchukov: Works well via the icon and via a keyboard shortcut.
  • (2015-02-07) Sheena Madan: Very lightweight. I use it all the time.
  • (2014-11-14) Sheena Madan: I really appreciated this feature in IE and missed it in Chrome. This extension does the trick and seems pretty lightweight and reliable!
  • (2013-07-29) Joe Dalton: Nice one but would be even better if tab could be copied from an user to another
  • (2013-06-23) Jan Milewski: THIS is the Extension that I was looking for. As some of you might remember early versions of IE always cloned new windows and I was emulating that behavior in all browsers I was using since then. Sadly Chrome had an unwieldy way of cloning tabs (menu item on clicking a tab) and no way of opening cloned tabs by default. In Firefox I was using the CloneTab extension for this - now I can finally switch to using Chrome. Big props! P.S. The extension has no options itself. If you are wondering how to bind a keyboard shortcut (e.g. Ctrl+T to replace Chrome's default behavior): You have to select the "Keyboard Shortcuts" option in the bottom right corner of the extensions page.

  • (2020-05-07, v:1.2018.1.404) Tim Lovell: Where is keyboard shortcut configuration?
    Love this extension. But I can't see the options any more to configure keyboard shortcut. Is it no longer available, or moved?
  • (2016-09-06, v:1.2012.12.1706) Code
    You could send me the source code ?
  • (2013-06-23, v:1.2012.12.1706) Jan Milewski: Hiding Button disables keyboard shortcut
    I noticed that the plugin stops working if you hide the button. That is, even if you are using the keyboard shortcut exclusively, it won't work with a hidden button. I believe this is due to the way Chrome handles extension button shortcuts in general. Perhaps you could find a way to code around it and add a plugin-specific option for a keyboard shortcut? Cheers!
  • (2013-06-23, v:1.2012.12.1706) Jan Milewski: Cloning New Windows?
    Hello there! I know that Chrome doesn't have an option to duplicate content and history upon opening new windows at all, which is why it isn't quite possible to make a simple function call via a shortcut for it AFAIK. I still wonder if you could perhaps look into the possibility of coding around this limitation and adding the feature of opening cloned WINDOWS (with a shortcut too), so e.g. Ctrl+N would open a cloned window. Cheers!
  • (2013-01-23, v:1.2012.12.1706) Keyboard shortcut
    Answer to previous post. I had the same problem. Solution: Go to Chrome extensions list and at the page lower right corner you will find something like "Configure commands". Click it, enter Ctrl+T. And it works! By the way, you should not disable button with sheep at the right from Chrome address row, keyboard shortcut will stop working.
  • (2013-01-21, v:1.2012.12.1706) McNerdius: Uh... how do i use it ?
    The only thing i can do with this right now is use the button up there next to the "hotdogs." In other words, exactly as i'd have to do without the extension. As for mapping a key combo - the options menu item is greyed out, and unavailable in the extensions tab. I tried Ctrl+T for the heck of it: no worky- brings me to "normal" new tab page.
