If you're a person who takes advantage of saved tab groups in Chrome, this is the right extension to get. I do a significant part of my work in Chrome and have dozens of tabs open at any given time. Combined with saved tab groups, this extension allows easy tab organization, management, and switching (with no guessing!). It's become a vital part of my workflow. There are a ton of vertical tab bar extensions out there - I like this one best by far. It's good-looking and doesn't ask for more ... Show more

I agree with other reviewers here. The extension is a great idea, but there is so much wasted space. I just took a few measurements: - On my 16" MacBook Pro using slightly larger than default fonts, the side panel itself takes up 35% of the total browser width. That's my start point for how much real estate is lost. - Within the side panel, the unnecessary drop-down at the top to change from SideTab Pro to Reading List etc and the search bar, plus the borders and padding waste 20% both v...

Best vertical tab manager so far! A few suggestions: 1. Allow hiding the search box to save more screen space for the tabs. The gears icon currently in the search box can be moved to the pinned tab row. 2. Make the scroll bars dynamic, i.e. only show scroll bars when they are needed, to save more space for the vertical tabs. 3. It would be fantastic if you can provide the ability to narrow down the inner paddings of Chrome's side panel! They are currently too thick. Thanks!

Option to remove the "Close Group" button would be great. Also group name looks to be cut off a bit.

It was difficult to figure out how to get the vertical tabs to display. Once I did, I couldn't find any way to adjust the font size or spacing - and was only able to see 9 tabs at a time. Unfortunately that's not very helpful. There's a header there also, but when closing it to gain more vertical space for tabs to show, it just closes the whole thing, e.g., no more vertical tabs at all. Having the search bar constantly shown rather than it being an very small icon type option also takes u... Show more

Hi Eclectk, thanks for trying this extension out! 1. Vertical Space: you can try out the Compact view by clicking on the settings icon in the search bar. 2. Horizontal Space: Chrome currently doesn't allow custom side panel width. I'll support it as soon as chrome provides an API for this. 3. Left/right alignment: this option is available in the chrome settings. I have provided a shortcut in the setting icon in the search bar. Please try it again and let me know what you think.

The very reason I installed this extension is to declutter the top bar tabs in Chrome. And yet it doesn't hide the top bar tabs and only serves an additional vertical tab settings. Utterly useless as it only serves an additional visual mess. Checked the settings and I see no option to hide the top bar tabs.

Hi there! Chrome currently doesn't support hiding the top bar tabs. You can alternative try hiding your toolbar using command+shift+F on mac or ctrl+shift+F on windows. I'll add the support as soon as it's supported by chrome.

Works very good so far. Feature request: tab import/export and AI tab group naming. Like detecting it's a Gmail tab and automatically name the group "". Or allow the users to help with that by inputing their group names to a database, at least for most used websites.

Auto-grouping is already supported but it's based on the domain name. To use it hover over the "ungrouped" tab group and click on the first icon saying "auto group".

Looks and functions nice. One small but noticeable inconvenience is it can take a good sec to get updated after a tab has been moved/opened/closed, so use caution when doing quick tab management.

Cannot control the tag group for "save group".
