Multitasking, although scientifically proved to reduce our powers of concentration, is one of the features we have acquired from our daily use of digital media. I am personally struggling hard with it; sometimes I would be reading an article and in the midst of my reading I would check my emails, my twitter, my RSS feed and when I get back to the article I was reading I would discover that it took me almost an hour or more to do all of that. Multitasking is a serious problem and unless you become aware of it you will never fight it off.
If it happens that you are a multitasker too then the extensions below will be of great help to you . They are basically Chrome tab management add-ons which can help you control the tabs you open and manage all the different sessions you work on.
1- Panick Button
I use this extension to save the tabs I open for later reading. Sometimes It happens that I would have several tabs open and suddenly I got a call or need to go away from my laptop, one click on Panick Button saves all the tabs even when you turn off your computer.
2- Too Many Tabs
I use this extension particulalry to trace back the tabs I opened. Sometimes I would misclik and close a tab or even a window full of tabs, one click on Too Many Tabs gets everything back.
3- Quick Tab
This is similar to Too Many Tabs in that it also saves the history of the tabs you open. This one here provides a drop down menu of all the tabs you have checked .
4- Close Tabs
This is a smart extension that allows users to perform a set of actions all having to do with closing tabs. You can , for instance, choose which tabs to close whether the ones on the left or the others on the right and many more.
5- Sexy Undo Close Tabs
This is another extension that allows you to reopen all your closed tabs and even provides a search functionality for users to browse through thier browsing history.
6- Session Manager
Session Manager enables you to save the whole session you are working on with its multitude of opened tabs. It is like the two first extensions I mentioned above.
7- Recent History
I think its name says it all. This extension allows you to reopen the closed tabs you have been working on. It has an icon that is displayed on your toolbar once you install it.
8- Tab Cloud
This is by all means one of the best Chrome extensions. It allows users to open their closed tabs in any other computer. All you need to do it is to sign in with your Google account. It is awesome.
9- Tab Counter
This is a great extension for those who love to keep track of how many tabs they open. It provides you with statistics about the tabs currently opened, the ones you opened for today and also the number of all tabs you opened since its installation.
10- Tab Jump
This is also an awesome extension to install on your Chrome browser. It provides three columns : Undo ( for recently closed tabs ), related ( it lists other tabs opened by the same site you are currently viewing ), and Jump ( for frequently closed tabs ) .
