Got tabs? Yes, you do. There are tabs on the Finder, tabs on Safari and other browsers. What’s wrong with tabs? Typical puny humans. We overuse what the gods have given. Open too many tabs in a browser window and performance and stability suffer. Here’s a solution. It’s free.
Tabs And Tabs, Oh My!
In an article last week I went into some detail on How To Browse Better And Faster On A Mac, and offered some tips, details, and personal experience for browser users. One tip mentioned but not detailed was OneTab, an extension for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox which gives you an option for dozens of tabs but actually reduces memory usage which improves stability.
The extension is called OneTab and what it does is simple on the surface. It takes a browser window full of tabs and reduces them to a single page of links to the tabbed websites.
Whenever you find yourself with too many tabs, click the OneTab icon to convert all of your tabs into a list. When you need to access the tabs again, you can either restore them individually or all at once.
OneTab solves this problem.
There you go. Look at all those tabs.
The typical problem with too many open tabs in a browser. OneTab takes all those open tabs from a single window and turns them into a manageable list where a single click brings back whatever website used to reside within the tab.
The fix? Click the OneTab icon and this is what you get.
Not bad for free, right?
OneTab lists all the websites from the open tabs, drops them into a list within a single tab. That saves space, reduces tab clutter, and makes it easier to get back to whatever websites you had open in tabs. Click on a link and it opens in the background into a new tab.
You get an option to Restore All the tabs, Delete All the tabs. Name, Lock, or Star the whole group of tabs to be viewed later– all of them in a single browser window– with a click to the OneTab icon in the toolbar.
What’s not to like? OneTab is free.
What’s not to like? For now, OneTab runs only on Chrome and Firefox. Not Safari.
