Shows total active tabs, shows a searchable list of all tabs, jump immediately to a tab, allows for closing tabs and windows.

Shows a count of total active tabs across all windows on the browser icon. When clicked a searchable list of all the tabs appears broken down by window (each window is collapsible). Clicking any tab will immediately focus that tab, even if it is minimized. You can also close individual tabs or entire windows from the list. You have to "Allow in incognito" on the manage extensions page to show incognito tabs, it will not show them by default. Updates - 1.2 - now adds a background to tabs playing audio, also searchable by using the keyword "audio" 1.3 - added keyboard shortcuts (open help by hitting ?), prefixed keywords with _ to help separate further. @shaunsational

On one computer, it works excellently. But on another, it's only showing tabs for a single window, the one with the most tabs, regardless of which of my two open windows I use the extension in. This is frustrating.

Hi Chris, can you give me details about the other computer, I have it working on multiple and never had an issue. Is the other window(s) incognito? if its incognito you need to allow the extension to work in incognito windows as well
