As for previous review, clicked Save State and it closed all my tabs. They don't appear in Chrome History to be reopened. Clicking on Load State does nothing. Really wish I hadn't been foolish enough to try using this. FML!

Wiped my dozens of tabs when I clicked save state, including tabs I will never be able to find again. Great job

Extension works well, but only with one state of tabs. This is similar to the functionality that chrome provides builtin by going to history and choosing the last closed tabs state for example. I was actually hoping it would have a way to save multiple states (i.e. multiple tab groups), and labelling them too, so I could open the tab group that I want to currently work on. If that functionality is incorporated, the rating goes to five stars :)

It doesn't work the way a "save state" feature should. Save state implies that you can save a web page in the state it was when you last accessed it and then upon loading it, it loads the same content again. This extension does not "save" anything except for the urls in the tabs and then re-loads the url. It will not save the web page content. The web page content will re-load and update and will be different from what you had before. Automatic one-star for a gimmicky, sketchy, mis-leading fa... Show more

You misunderstand what I meant by saving state. Saving the full state in the way that you describe from a web browser extension is simply not possible, as it lacks access to the context needed to save. Google does not let extension developers access the OS process of open tabs, meaning that I would not be able to save the registers, memory, and much else that would be needed (it does not allow you to access this for very good reason - it keeps users safe!). So it is foolish to expect it to save the full state. If you find another extension that can do it the way you describe, let me know, but I simply don't think you will find one that still passes Google's requirements to be published on the app store.

Having a computer with an abysmal battery life, this extension has been a life saver for keeping my tabs saved. Especially helpful for research papers and the like. Would highly recommend to anybody.

This extension has made my life way easier! I was always having to close all my tabs to shut down my computer and that get's annoying fast. But with Save State I can save them, and they'll still be there after the restart!
