Overview

Keep your tabs ordered by their most recent usage.

This extension keeps browser's tabs sorted in most recently used order (MRU), from left to right, just like a list of apps is organized on desktop operation systems (while holding Alt+Tab). Tab Slider brings this behavior to Chrome browser for your convenience. Try it! How it works: + If you stay on tab more than 1 second (default), it will "slide" to the leftmost position; + In this way, most recently used tabs always stay left-to-right ordered; + Because of the order, naturally, when switching tabs with Ctrl+Tab, the browser will switch to the next most recently used tab; + Pinned tabs will slide to the opposite side, from left to right. This behavior is intended, enabling you to conveniently switch between most recently used pinned tabs and most recently used normal tabs with keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+Shift+Tab switches to most recently used pinned tab, and Ctrl+Tab switches back to most recently used normal tab). + You can customize reordering delay or maximum number of tabs in the extension's settings; + New active tabs appear left immediately. Once you understand this concept, you will find such reordering of tabs absolutely natural and logical.

It takes time to make things real. Also, IIRC, at the time of evaluation, Edge didn't have proper APIs to work with tabs which made Tab Slider not possible for it. If you have some time, feel free to contribute: https://github.com/nikitaeverywhere/tab-slider

One of THE BEST, if not THE BEST extension ever. Raised a feature request on the Vivaldi forum for this very feature a couple days ago; nobody responded; was looking for an Alt-Tab style tab switcher for the browse instead, and found THIS! At first was hesitant, since there always are a bunch of tabs opened on the leftmost side of my windows which I won't want repositioned, and then saw that one could exclude pinned tabs from the rearranging behaviour! This extension is JUST PERFECT! If only ... Show more

I admire the work you have done Nikita and I know you put time and effort on this, so thank you very much. However, this can get easily confusing because you sometimes only visit a tab "to know what it is" and no certain delay can work for all cases. I liked it too when I installed it, but soon I realized it wasn't what I fancied. Maybe an extension that allows me send a tab to the first in the tabs order "manually" will do better. But in general, I know this is free software and I thank a lo... Show more

And yeah, you also have an option (in settings) to disable sliding pinned tabs, thus they will always stay. Takes a bit to get used to it but makes flawless workflows later.
