Replace the favicon icon of a chrome tab with custom emoji – so you can finally tell your tabs apart.
Emojitab lets you set custom emoji favicons for your chrome tabs, so tabs with the same icon are easy to tell apart at a glance.
- Making individual Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides documents have unique emoji
- Setting emoji for individual Figma files
- Setting different emoji for software engineering "dev," "staging," "local," "docs," or "prod" instances without needing to build that yourself
This extension is in Beta and we would love your feedback or feature requests at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you find any bugs or websites not supported, please email email@example.com .
We may at some point charge a small amount to cover the cost of ongoing support, but we'll give all beta users a full year of free usage if we do so.
On installation, this chrome extension asks for a number of permissions because we need to be able to modify the pages you visit in order to attach the emoji tab icons.
We ask for and need:
- storage permissions to save your icons
- activeTab permissions to populate the extension popup when you open the extension
- host/content script permissions ("modify web pages you visit") so we can modify web pages in order to replace the tab icon encoded on the page with your custom icon
- scripting and tabs permissions in order to "run once" on pages you have already loaded when you first install the extension, so you don't have to refresh all your many tabs (because if you forget to refresh, it appears broken)
This extension does not track any personal information, does not track the sites you visit, and does not track any custom text you might input to the fields on the extension.
We do track a few generic and anonymous events, in order to understand if people are using this extension and we should continue to support it. Specifically:
- We track an "event" when you set an icon or when you delete it
- We track an "event" when you load a page with a previously-set icon (but we *do not* track the url or title or any info about that page you loaded, just a generic "icon loaded" event)
For these events, we track what the icon is *only if* the icon is an emoji. If it's a custom string we only track the length of the string in characters, so that your custom inputs remain fully private.
