FreshStart 1.6 is released!

FreshStart Crash Recovery allows you to auto-save current sessions periodically. Unlike the normal FreshStart sessions, these auto-saved sessions are not stored as bookmarks.

In this update, the Crash Recovery function is greatly enhanced. In addition to the your last Chrome session, five more snapshots of your sessions are saved. These five snapshots are taken during your last five Chrome launches. They can serve as an extra backup when Chrome auto session restore fails.

Enable "Crash Recovery" in FreshStart Options and adjust the backup frequency if necessary.

Usually if Chrome crashed there should be a yellow "Restore" button that allows you to restore to your previous session. In the case when it fails, please open FreshStart popup and click the "Crash Recovery" button. (Note FreshStart "Crash Recovery" must be enabled already)

This will open the Restore Page that contains all your auto-saved sessions. Click on a snapshot link to see the content of the session. The session now includes time-stamps and the pinned state are saved. (Only for auto-save sessions)
