Splits off tabs into a new window
I often find myself with WAY too many tabs open in Chrome. Typically this happens when I start researching something, and the next thing I know, I have 20-30 tabs open and it’s nearly impossible to navigate between them because they’ve become so small. I usually end up dragging them one-by-one to a new window so they’re more manageable and wishing dearly for a quick button I could push to do this work.
I wrote this extension to alleviate my own pain, but thought others might find it useful too. Simply select a tab, then click the button. All of the tabs to the right of the selected tab will be moved to a brand new window saving you valuable time and your sanity.
Note: I had originally intended this to be in the right click context menu on the tabs themselves, but it doesn't seem like that's possible. If anyone knows how to do that, feel free to share and I'll make the change.
Update: A number of people have commented that you can simply shift/ctrl + click tabs and drag them into a new window. This may work in Windows or Linux (I wouldn't know), but I can tell you it does not work in the latest version of Chrome for OSX. Until this is resolved, this extension is still very useful and valid (I still use it all the time).
Also, thanks everyone for the great reviews! It's really exciting to see so many people using and enjoying this extension.
