More Details on Tab Preview

TooManyTabs 2.1 released with Google Drive Support!

We have released TooManyTabs for Chrome 2.1. In this update, we have fixed the missing previews since Chrome 34 and introduced a new feature - automatic backup to Google Drive.

Authorize TMT to save data to your Google Drive

  • Visit the "Import/Export" page, then click "Authorize"
  • This will open the Google Authorization Popup, please click "Accept", close the popup after a few seconds if it does not close automatically *
  • The TMT data will save as Application Data and it is not visible in the Drive interface. To manage TMT data, please go to Google Drive's Settings > "Manage Apps". The stored tabs can only be accessed by your authorized Chrome profile**
  • Now go back to the Import/Export page and click "Reload" button to confirm the authorization status. You can create your backup immediately, TMT will also automatically backup your tabs daily

Restore and Delete Backup

  • If you have multiple Chrome profiles/machines using the same Google Account, you might want to add a label to differentiate different backups from different machines

  • Click "Restore" to restore a specific backup, all the existing tabs and columns will be overwritten and the changes cannot be undone
  • Click "Remove" to delete a backup from your Drive, TMT will keep at most 10 backups in your Drive

New Commands

We have added two new commands that can be customized in the Tools > Extension Page. You can now easily send active tab to TMT and open TMT window via shortcut.

* To make sure the backup can run automatically, please always remember to login with your Google account
** If you revoke TMT access to your drive then no more backup will be created until you authorize again

Thank you for using TooManyTabs. Enjoy!

TooManyTabs 2.0 released with new feature

We have released TooManyTabs for Chrome (v 2.0), the incorrect tab count bug has been fixed in this version and we have added a new feature for keyboard shortcut lovers.

Whenever the search box is active, you can use up/down arrow to navigate open tabs, then press enter to select the tab immediately.

For example, after we search for "chrome", we can use the down arrow to navigate to the third result, the tab will start "bouncing", simply press "enter" to select the tab.

Actually immediately after you open the popup, you can also use the up and down keys to select a tab without searching for any specific keywords. It might take longer than a regular mouse click to select your desired tab in some cases though.

TooManyTabs 1.9 is released!

TooManyTabs 1.9 is released! This updates includes many new features for all the tabaholics out there:

  • Too many tabs in TooManyTabs? You may meditate to suppress your never-ending tabbing desire, or you may now sort TMT column by tab title or URL to find your tabs in TMT easily. Just toggle the two new buttons to sort and unsort your column.
  • You may further filter column by tab title or URL just use the corresponding sort filter box beneath the sort buttons to filter tabs as you type.

  • Pinned tab support: If a pinned tab is sent to TMT, it will stay pinned (indicated by the pin icon over the tab). This means when you restore this tab, it will also be restored as pinned in Chrome and will not be removed from TMT. To remove a pinned tab from TMT, please explictly remove it via the context menu.

Export and Import
  • In addition to export as JSON format for backup and migration. You may now export your TMT tabs as plain text or HTML for print or email.
  • New import options: Merge import data with existings columns.
  • Tip: Please always export and backup your tabs as file before importing other TMT data.
New options
  • Hide Chrome's pinned tabs in TMT popup: Check this options and pinned tabs in Chrome will not appear in the TMT tab panel. This can avoid suspending pinned tabs accidentally. You can still send the pinned tab via the "Send Tab to TooManyTabs" context menu directly.

What's new in TooManyTabs for Chrome 1.7.0

By popular demand, with the latest version of TooManyTabs for Chrome, you may use context menu (right click menu) to send the current tab or any links on the tab to TooManyTabs immediately.

The tab/link can even be sent to different coulmns if you have enabled "custom columns".

Some users have shown concerns on the performance when loading tab previews. Actually you can start to select or sort tabs even though the previews are loading. We believe the previews are useful for users who prefer more visuals, if you prefer less, you can now turn off the tab previews in options.
