      Ever tried having 20 tabs or more open in Chrome? You can’t even see the favicon of the tabs, not to mention the tab titles! If that happens to you, TooManyTabs is a must-have extension that manages your tabs, reduces your tab overflow, and saves your sanity!

      This Chrome/Iron extension is inspired by the excellent Firefox extension - BarTab, although it's much less sophisticated and powerful. It works for 10 secs on Chrome/Iron start, blocking tabs that are not active from any web requests.

      Moves tabs so they are always sorted in most recently used (MRU) order. Pinned tabs will stay in place.
