I favour Chrome as my primary browser. I’m a Firefox advocate and recently appreciate the intelligence of Ghostery’ browser offer.
Chrome operates across all my devices providing a portal to my cloud apps, services, tools and online documents... oh and the World Wide Web!
I open and close tabs to keep track and focus on the client project or production I’m working on. I clear the decks and move on next day.
Clearing my toys and getting out the next game, changing the set takes mental energy. Stopping and starting. You get the picture.
Enter Chrome Tabs stage left!
I’d flirted with Chrome extension OneTab and the like but they never became habitual.
Want to play? Right click a chrome tab. New items in the menu! “Add tab to new group”. A coloured button appears (you can name) and the colour will outline and underline the collected tabs as you add them.
Thank you Helen Raw for the heads up on this.
Once you have the optimal set up make sure you update your settings so that “On start-up” is set to “Continue where you left off”.
Click the group button and as if by magic all the tabs assigned to the group tab compress to a single tab neatly named and coloured. It’s very satisfying.
I have one for Email providers which used to be my opening tabs (Heart Internet, Hyper.Host and Gmail - My web mail) One for co-working (Teemy, Kumospace and Whereby) followed by tab groups for each of my current client which consist of an array of Google docs.
