Overview

Keep one (optionally unfocusable) per window pinned tab open at all times. Prevents Chrome windows from closing with last tab.

Keep one (optionally unfocusable) per window pinned tab open at all times. Prevents Chrome windows from closing with last tab. This extension prevents Chrome from closing when you close the final tab in a window. It keeps one pinned, blank tab always open as the first tab in your tab bar, and reopens it if it is closed. ------------------------ Inspired by "Live On": https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/live-on/oficfgdfeoknbjfhommlpiekdapmnebh/ Icons by Everaldo Coelho: http://www.everaldo.com/ Project released open-source, Github project available: https://github.com/theborg3of5/KeepOnePinnedTab ------------------------ Please note that this was made for personal use, so replies and fixes may be delayed. ------------------------ Changelog: 1.0: Initial Release. 1.1: Bugfix: now takes into account whether the window is a popup vs. normal, and allows selection of special tab to aid in easier ctrl+tabbing. 1.2: Broke main functionality with last update, now fixed. 1.3: Extending closing functionality to second, semi-special tab. 2.0: Back from hiatus! Fixed the issue where a new pinned tab would appear upon every startup for some users, and moved the close-extra-new-tabs functionality out to a new extension, called "Close Extra New Tabs" (see other apps by this developer). 3.0: Added an options page! You can now set what URL you want the pinned tab to have, rather than it always being your new tab page. Defaults to new tab page if you don't set it. 3.1: Fixed an issue where the extension would open tabs forever, sorry folks! 3.2: Took out a console.log() that was left in (no functional impact). 4.0: Major update! Changes: - Built-in options for pages to pin. - Option: no focus special pinned tab. - Squashed all known bugs. 4.1: A few small bugfixes: - Don't open two new tabs (+ pinned one) when opening a new window. - Work correctly in incognito mode. 4.2: Fix issue where we keep opening new pinned tabs when Chrome is allowed to stay open in the background 5.0: Complete rewrite and upgrade to manifest v3! - Fixes the "never focus pinned tab" setting. - Cleans up the settings page (and changes how we store settings behind the scenes).

So simple and awesome but PLEASE allow more than one tab to be pinned. No pin tab chrome extension is a good as this but this limitation is really frustrating. I know the name says keep 'one' tab pinned, but this change will be so helpful. All the reviews are saying the same thing.

Would be better if I could specify multiple pinned tabs to always open. I'd love to always open 1 pinned tab for my work email, and one for my personal email. Oh well. Great otherwise. 4 stars for this reason.

Update: DEV! Could you add support for allowing users to make as many "global pinned tabs" as we want? In other words, if I could chose to make any of the pinned tabs in a right click context menu by the each. Also, a way to configure this to automatically happen with all pinned tabs and could then use the right click context menu on individual pinned tabs in order to exclude them from being global? Basically, two modes. Auto make global (across all windows) if pinned with ability to righ... Show more
