Tab Manager Plus is open source.
The main purpose of Tab Manager Plus is to find "lost" tabs easily. You can open the Tab Manager with a keyboard shortcut - Ctrl+M / Cmd+M or by clicking on the icon - and then you can type right away!
The Tab Manager will then show you all tabs that match your search terms - by tab title, and by url. If you've found your tab, and it's the only one selected - press "enter" - and you will jump right to it!
If you don't like one of the layouts, there's in total 4 more views available :
★ Block view ( Shows you groups of icons - each window is one group )
★ Big block view ( same as above, but with bigger icons )
★ Horizontal view ( every window is one line, and every tab is represented by an icon )
★ Vertical view ( a list of all your tabs - with readable titles )
You can move tabs between windows in every view - and you can select tabs with your right mouse button ( or CTRL+click on Mac ). Once you have selected a few tabs, simply press the "enter" key, and all tabs will be moved to a new browser window.
Are you stuck with lost duplicate tabs? Simply press the "duplicate tabs" icon, and Tab Manager will highlight the Duplicates for you. You can then press "Enter" as well, and they will be moved to a separate window.
➤ Don't like animations? You can turn off / turn on animations in the options.
➤ The window is too big - the tabs take too much space? Switch to a compact view in the options - it's less beautiful, but more space efficient.
➤ In each window you will find 2 action buttons. One + icon, that opens a new tab in that window, and a x icon, which closes the whole window. If you don't like these 2 buttons, then you can disable them in the options as well.
If you want to have an overview over your incognito tabs as well - make sure to go into the extension settings, and to enable the extension in Incognito mode.
★ Additional benefits
Depending on how many scripts are running inside your tabs, cleaning out duplicates from time to time can also speed up your computer by reducing the CPU load. Please take care of your computer.
★ Not so obvious nowadays, but important nevertheless :
- We don't share ANY data with anybody. Everything happens offline and in your browser only.
- This version does NOT have any malware or hidden ads. We made this, because we were fed up with the previous version that was infested with malware and ads.
- We love Tab Manager - we hope you love it, too.
