This extension displays a window's tabs in a bar along the top or bottom of the screen, useful for when browsing in full screen (F11) mode. The tiles are larger, so easier to click on than the usual browser tabs.

It also allows navigating through the tabs using the keyboard, using the left and right keys. Press Enter to select a tab.

Other features include:

Type-to-search: start typing to enter keywords in the tabtiles address bar, press Enter to search.

Choose when to display the bar: for normal restored windows, when maximized or in full screen mode. And / or auto-hide when not in use.

Customize the size of the bar, to a percentage of the window height.

Show popup hints, containing the full title and address of the page.

Risk impact

tabtiles requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install tabtiles if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

tabtiles has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Animations are sluggish. Can't hide buttons for back, forward, new tab, address bar. All my tabs, except active one, show "secure page" instead of title on tabs. Doesn't support Chrome's tab grouping feature so all the tabs you have hidden away in groups, and don't want to see all the time, are showing individually.

It works, but the UX is poor. Visuals are the least of my worries; the non-scrollable tab bar via touchscreen is obviously unusable.

It felt extremely clunky. The functionality is good, but it doesn't feel smooth or polished. The UX could definitely use a rework.
