Tab renaming is not sticky. The extension does not remember the name given to a tab if it is closed and reopened.

Does exactly what it says on the tin. You have to click the extension icon or use the keyboard shortcut (Option-R on macOS) to use it. Doesn't persist across refreshes etc., which isn't a huge deal to me personally but it WOULD be a cool feature if added in the future.

Works exceptionally Does exactly what I was looking for, provides a quick way to rename a tab. Tabs have really long names sometimes and browsing repositories especially, the thing I want to see, the program name, is at the end of the tab name. With this I can click the extension, or hit alt+r (the default shortcut) to rename the tab to what I deem most useful. There's also no real delay that I can see, meaning it doesn't slow down my workflow.
