Norio, どうもありがとうございました (Dōmo arigatōgozaimashita)! <-- thanks Google Translate ;-) And thanks to Shrikant Sharat Kandula for explaining how to set shortcut keys for extensions in Chrome!: << And to those wanting a hotkey, go to your extensions page in chrome and scroll to the bottom. If you see a link at the bottom right saying 'Configure Commands', that's what you need. I use `Ctrl+i` for this hotkey, since it is easy to hit for touch typists like me :). >>

thumbs up! simple, fast and elegant! i love most that it automatically displays the long tab titles in two lines! more efficient than a number of other similar addons i have tried! finally, I find what I need! thanks!
