You can use Ctrl+w (on Mac: ⌘ + w) This is the best tab management system you can find. If something goes wrong, just hit Ctrl+H.

@iliya_valchanov You can use CTRL+SHIFT+T to reopen a tab you just closed by accident. Useful if you have a tab that was opened 5 days ago and you don't feel like digging in the history :D In Google chrome it even works if you just closed the browser (it will reopen the last tabs)

Use different chrome windows in different workspaces (windows 10). Human 🧠 sucks at multitasking, if you're at one website have one tab of that website (most of your tabs are PH tabs) Control + Shift + T to recover lost tabs. Constantly talk yourself through what you're currently doing, I think most of the tabs would be sitting idle. You always have history so it's okay to close them, don't be afraid of loosing them forever

@goforbg gave Yes, bundled all the PH tabs in one group. Targeting to limit myself to not more than 5 tabs (other than PH ofcourse) πŸ™ˆ

I use toby to organize my tabs or the context I want to have when working. https://www.gettoby.com/ I work on different projects and different tasks of different projects as an early-stage startup founder. If you have a lot of things going on and want to start the day with some uncluttered context it's a cool tool @adityavsc

In chrome or brave there's an inbuilt feature ↳ Right click on the tab ↳Then click on "add tab to new group" ↳ Name the group, choose color and add other tabs of choice Check it out, might be helpful

@pratham_vasudev Yep! I've been using the groups feature for sometime. Life saver for sure. One thing I do not like about it, is that whenever a new tab is added to it, the complete list of tabs opens up. I wish it had some toggle feature.

Sounds like a plug, but try using bit.ly/tabtrum. The big perk being it functions almost like the Tab groups of the new Monterey Safari

@shuvam_manna all plugs are valid if the product is nice 🀩 will give it a try :)

OneTab is my jam. I can temporarily save groups of tabs that relate to some project I'm working on, then come back to them all later. If the group sits there too long, then I know I can probably forget the project

Chrome's tab groups are brilliant! Although, it does encourage me to leave FAR too many tabs open...

Hi @adityavsc! May I suggest our app KosmoTime? It has a cool Close Tabs feature, so you can see all your tabs listed out on one single page, and restore them whenever you need
