so close to being perfect, but could really use a whitelist... I have a tabs manager window that I use infrequently, but don't want closed (this addon closes it and also deletes from the window), while all other tabs should be closed after 1 minute of inactivity...

It's simple and it works. I just wished it would keep the truncated tabs/urls, rather than fully close them. This way you would have the option of reloading them if necessary.
