One of the features in Chrome that I really like is the ability to create and customize groups of tabs. It helps me in arranging the tabs based on different parameters. Despite this feature, lately I found myself drowning in sea of ‘tabs’ in Chrome. I used to open one tab and forget what were the last tabs I was working on opened. I’m sure you must have faced the same issue.

To solve this pain-point, I have created this Chrome extension. It will show the 5 most recently (can be configured to 10) visited tabs for each window. You can directly open the tab from the extension screen itself as well as close them.

How to use the extension ? It's actually very easy.

  1. After installation, Pin the extension in the browser.
  2. On clicking the extension icon or Keyboard Shortcut (Mac: Command+U, Windows: Ctrl+U), Popup will show top 5 (default) most recently visited tabs for each window.
  3. The number of recent tabs to show can be configured to 5 or 10.
  4. Select "All Windows" to view tabs from all windows. Window ID are identifiers. They will be same for a single window.
  5. "Visit" action will make the Tab active (even if it's in a different window) and switch the user to that tab.
  6. "Remove action" will close the tab.
  7. Mute/Unmute tabs playing audio. Muted Tabs can be manually reloaded to unmute as well.
  8. Privacy: No data (Username, password, email, etc) is collected or shared with external sources. The extension doesn’t work with ‘Incognito mode’.
