Tries to help people with a compulsive tabs opening habit by preventing duplicated tabs

DDT tries to help people with a compulsive tabs opening habit by preventing duplicated tabs. It won't cure you, but hopefully you'll suffer less. The Context I tend to open and reopen the very same tabs again and again, just to refresh their content. I've usually got lots (150+ on several browser windows) of open tabs, and even with the use of some Chrome extensions it takes too much time to find the one I want to refresh. So, since my Bookmarks Bar is full, and I reopen the website I want to read once again. And again. And again. The Need I don't want to care anymore about duplicated tabs. Please remove them for me, oh mighty browser, whenever I open another tab with a link already present somewhere else. The Result Whenever the user opens a new tab, either via CTRL/CMD+click on a link or Right click -> Open in new tab, the extension looks for any other open tabs with the very same url and close them if found. You can enable/disable the extension by clicking on the extension action icon. Is it safe? DDT requires two kind of permissions from Chrome: -tabs: to access the tabs list with their urls -storage: to save the enabled/disabled state It does not: access the network (in any way, not even for checking for updates) read the contents of the opened pages It could: close some tabs you don't want to close: this extension is in Beta stage. I've never lost anything I did not expect to lose in all the testing I did, but please don't hold me responsible if anything bad happens Known limitations It activates only when the user requests a new tab, not when you are clicking on a link that opens a new tab If you really want a duplicate tab, you can open a blank tab (only one a time ;) ) and then paste the link If a link/bookmark does a redirect in more than 250ms, thus changing the tab url or scheme (i.e. http page redirecting to the same page served in https) later, it won't be matched

Sorry, but it stupidly doesn't work. I am opening several tabs with the same site - no effect. Trying to reload them - no effect.
