Automatically closes inactive tabs and makes it easy to get them back.

## Tab Keeper 1.4 -------------------------------------------------------------- Too many tabs? Do you have a tab addiction? Tab Keeper automatically closes inactive tabs after designated time. But don't worry, auto-closed tabs are stored safe and sound, and makes it easy to get them back. It will save your computer. Similar to AutoClose Tabs, Auto Close Tabs for Firefox. Icons from Fat Cow / famfam fam. If you find the extension useful, then please consider a contribution to help me continue to develop and maintain it, using Paypal button in the options tab. Help: Support: ## Features: -------------------------------------------------------------- *The Corral*: Stores tabs which have been auto-closed so you can re-open as required. *Bookmarks*: Can save to Other bookmarks folder in chrome. A new folder called Tab Keeper Bookmarks is created under it. Again under tha folder, recent items are stored in Current folder, and older items are archived based on max tabs setting, to History folder within different timestamp folders, each containing previous sets of archived tabs. *Sync*: Chrome sync saves settings and data between computers. *Highly Configurable*: Pick how long a tab should be considered ready to close, how many tabs should be open at a minimum, how many tabs to store, and whether to store in bookmarks. *Exclude list*: Provide the urls or domain names of the sites you never want auto-closed. *Tab Lock*: Pick open tabs to "lock". Locked tabs will not be auto-closed. *Smart*: Doesn't auto close pinned tabs, doesn't close all your tabs, just enough to make your browser usable. Notice: Doesn't save the state of the page. It's just like history, when the page is closed, anything you were doing with it is gone. I recommend the lazarus extension if this is a problem for you. If you re-open it, it will be a fresh page. Please stop giving bad reviews for impossible features or intentional functionality please. File an issue on github if you want it changed or fork and upload a patch. Thanks! ## Usage / Installation -------------------------------------------------------------- * Install the extension * Click on the icon next to the URL bar. * Tab Corral * Stores tabs which have been auto-closed. * Tab Lock * Selectively lock tabs which you want to stay open * Options * White-list certain URLs to never be closed. * Set the # of minutes to wait before closing an inactive tab. * Set the ideal # of tabs to have in your browser. ## Todo: -------------------------------------------------------------- * Pause the auto-close behavior if the browser has been idle ## Release Notes: -------------------------------------------------------------- 1.4 Release Date: Sunday, March 15, 2015 Bug: Duplicate Tab Coral issue fixed. 1.0 Release Date: Sunday, March 08, 2015 Enhancement: Option to save closed tabs in bookmarks.

Why limit is 720 minutes? I want to close tabs after 1 day timeout.

Don't waste your time on this as it is utterly useless. Like most Tab extensions, Tab Keeper fails to deliver on what it claims. For example, it does not save windows, each one containing multiple tabs. As a result of using, I had to pianstakingly go through my Chrome history to restore many tabs that Tab Keeper failed to store. Tab Keeper is severely crippled by its failure to record tab history, since it `only' stores 1 or 2 days worth. UPDATE: I removed it since it fails to record all tabs... Show more

Game-changer, love it so far. Very helpful in avoiding getting swept away by distractions and starting computer work off with intention rather then whatever shiny webpage I happen to have open.
