Risk impact

Tab Wrangler requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing.

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

Tab Wrangler 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.

Have used this app for years and have closed around 80k tabs with it. Would love the option to 'keep unique tabs' open meaning that the oldest of a domain group would stay open. One of the most useful extension I have ever had, if not the most useful.

Seriously click you for this extension. It's always been so annoying to select and quit individual taps throughout the day. I knew there was a solution for automatically closing tabs, but I never got around to checking Google extensions. Again, thank you so much for your work.
