Only shows a few of my many apps. Anyone else notice that? That's too bad because it seemed adaptable and useful. Also interferes with one of my favorite session extensions.

Recommended over any other similar extension. Every extension kept running in background using ~20 MB RAM all the time for this simple redirection, which makes no sense. This extension is open source and never run in the background. 👍
