This extension clears all but the active tab in your browser.
UPDATE v2: Complete code refactor for manifest v3!
Have a lot of open tabs you want to easily close?
Quickly close all of your open tabs except the one in current window with this extension. Easily re-open all of your previously closed tabs.
The first click of the extension icon closes all of open tabs except for the current one in browser window. Made a mistake? Just click again when "1 R" is displayed on the extension's icon to re-open the tabs you just closed.
"Clear Tabs" allows you to quickly close all open tabs in Chrome, except for your currently selected tab. Just click the extension icon! The extension also counts how many tabs you have open.
Simple, easy, memory efficient, and privacy safe. Built for ease of use and privacy!
Please keep the following features in mind:
Only tabs in the current Chrome window will close, it will not close tabs on other Chrome window sessions.
If you create a new tab, remove a tab, or change window focus, your previously closed tabs will NOT be recoverable.
Tabs are only recoverable when the "R" recovery badge is visible in the extension icon.
The recovery feature is for accidental clicks only, not a "tab saver" function.
This extension does NOT collect any personal information from the user: We have no way to collect data or store it. It will work with and without an internet connection because it does not need one to work, since data is never sent to any third party.
TABS: To open and close tabs.
STORAGE: To maintain extension state when background process is suspended.
