Tabs Visual Manager Adds Thumbnailed Tab Switching to Chrome

If you rock a bunch of tabs and sometimes need a little visual reminder to recall where you left a tab you’re looking for, Tabs Visual Manager thumbnails all your tabs for easy visual switching.

Install Tabs Visual Manager, restart Chrome, and anytime you need to find a tab you can click on the Tabs Visual Manager icon in the toolbar. By default it opens a new tab with all your tab thumbnails, we found it was more convenient to switch it to pop-up mode (wherein it pops up a smaller menu from the icon itself instead of a whole new tab).

Tabs Visual Manager is a free extension and works wherever Chrome does. Hit up the link below to read more and grab a copy.

    I like it but wish I could change the background color. I placed in a suggestion to the dev :-)

    IE got tab viewer a long, long, long time ago.

    Didn’t IE’s version have you hover over the tab and it showed you a thumbnailed pop-up of the website?

    I am one of the tab hoarders who won’t close a tab because I may need it…and if I do close it out I eventually use the “undo closed tab” button.

    Link seems to be dead and I can’t find it via a search….maybe it was removed.
