It happens all the time.
You get caught up in research to buy something.
You keep opening tabs in a Wikipedia rabbit hole.
Before you know it, you've got so many tabs open in Google Chrome, that you can't find anything.
Here's how you never lose a tab again in Google Chrome.
You, my friend, need a tab manager extension.
I'm gonna show you a couple because different people have different tastes.
First up, this Tabman Tabs Manager.
Go to the Google Chrome web store, search for Tabman, then install it.
Tabman has this superhero looking icon, almost like Tabman with an [UNKNOWN] or something.
This is a mystery for a smarter person to solve.
Anyway, you can click Tabman or you use the keyboard shortcut, Alt+
V, to invoke Tabman.
You'll see a drop down of all the tabs and you can start typing the search for your inbox or whatever you're looking for.
Tab man only searches in the window you've got open.
So you've got two windows with lots of tabs you'll have to switch windows to find a tab elsewhere.
Second let's take a look at the tab manager called tab manager.
I wonder what it does.
After you install it you'll see little dots next to your address bar Clicking it shows you the icons for each site you have open.
Tabs in other windows are also visible.
If the icons look isn't working for you, you can click the layout button and get full lists.
You can shift click on icons to do actions like pin tabs or close them.
There's even a search on the bottom.
Lastly, there's TooManyTabs, giving a much more visual way of tab management.
The icon next to the address bar features a little icon that let's you know how many tabs you've got open at the time.
When you click it you'll see many versions of your tabs with the full title visible.
There's a search-and-sort functionality as well.
By default, too many tabs only shows you tabs in the window your working in.
You can change that in the options menu.
One more thing, I'm guilty of opening up many windows, minimizing them or moving them, to many different desktops.
One more tool that is indispensable, when it comes to never losing a tab is an extension called Merge Windows.
Clicking on the Merge Windows button will combine every open window of Chrome into one mega-sort-of-a-thing.
There you go.
