      If you tend to open too many tabs, closing them when no longer needed could be a tedious task. Fortunately you don't have to do it yourself.

      crogonint This one automagically closes tabs you haven't viewed recently. That means that you're depending on Chrome's notoriously rotten History function to get back old tabs. BAD idea.

      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!

      An essential add-on for power users that have many tabs open. Curb your resource usage by unloading tabs that you haven't visited for a while. An unloaded tab is restored back to its original state when you need it again.

      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.
