A single window showing all your open browser windows and tabs, listed vertically. TabFern will also save browser windows so you can close them and come back to them later with all their tabs intact.
If you are willing, please try TabFern and let us know how it goes! Huge thanks to those who have done so already!
TabFern is now available in the Chrome Web Store
Check out the code or report issues on GitHub.
The TabFern view shows a list of all your open windows and tabs, in white. It shows you saved windows and tabs in gray.
You can control other Chrome windows from the TabFern window by right-clicking their entries, or by clicking the corresponding buttons that appear at the right when you hover the mouse pointer over the window’s name.
To mark a window to be saved, you have two choices:
Folder icons are:
Saved windows will be saved even if you close them manually. To remove them from the tree, hit the delete icon (red X, ).
To change the text size in the TabFern window, click into the window, then hit Control+Plus for larger or Control+Minus for smaller. This is the normal Google Chrome browser zoom.
For help, sorting, options, or more functions, click the menu icon (≡) at the bottom right of the TabFern window.
On the menu in the bottom right (≡), you have options for “Backup” and “Load contents”:
.tabfernfile in your Downloads directory.
Loading a backup is not a “restore” operation that takes you back to where you were. Instead, it adds the loaded information to the windows and tabs you already have open or saved. That way you don’t have to worry about losing your current place.
See the issue tracker on GitHub for more about current limitations, and where TabFern is going in the future!
