When you’re working with Google Chrome and have several tabs open, it’s likely that you might accidentally close something important without realizing it or not be able to find what you’re looking for. Luckily, avoiding these problems is as simple as installing some extensions on the browser itself. Two of the most simple of these tab-management tools are TooManyTab and OneTab, both with their own standout features.
One of the most comprehensive tools for managing open tabs on Chrome. With it you can open, close, organize, or modify any open window without getting lost in the swamp of tabs you might have open.
When you open the tool you’ll see all the webpages you have open and the page you’re on at a single glance. If you don’t find what you’re looking for you can order it alphabetically, by website, or by date opened. If on the other hand you think you have too many open tabs but don’t want to close any of them you can move all the ones you don’t want to see for a while to a panel on the right. Once you want to see them again you just have to move them to the left panel.
OneTab is a good alternative to the popular TooManyTabs, as it will order all your open tabs into a simple list. Its interface is very simple and intuitive and you can’t get lost in it since the list only displays the name of the site you have open.
When you have many open tabs the only thing you have to do is click on the app icon that you’ll see at the right side of your browsing bar. Once you’ve clicked on it all the tabs open at that moment will be automatically collected into a single one.
When you want to fold one of them back out you have to go to the new tab and click on the link to the site you want or click on the option to restore all. OneTab will bring back all your tabs instantly.
Another tool that helps you manage your tabs is PanicButton. But this extension does it even more radically. With it you can instantly hide from view any tab you have open.
Thus by clicking on a single button you can keep people from seeing the content you have open on the page in front of you. To bring them back just click again on the button, which will have turned green. You can also create a keyboard shortcut that will help you hide tabs even faster.
