Would be nice if I could specify a time per tab. Maybe only enable it for pinned tabs. That way they're somewhat unique?

Maybe just allow all configuration options to be different for tabs that are pinned in general? :)

I think this would be useful as well, but I would think specifying configuration by URL would be simpler. (E.g. show "twitter.com" URLs for longer so they can be read.)

Would that fit your needs?

That makes sense. You may want to offer some degree of granularity to it - so a pattern ideally. So that I can go www.mysite.com, or drill down a bit to www.mysite.com/blog

Just in case some site in particular has a weird URL scheme, or triggers redirects or any of the other ten zillion ways web apps accomplish their goals ;)

Maybe just make it so that users can configur a list of regex expressions that apply settings when the url matches. Wouldn't worry about config cascades or anything. LOL

Haha -- I know what you mean. "Comment & close" should at least be another color or something. :)

I'm thinking something like Vimium does will do it:

Excluded URLs
+--------------------------------+
|http*://mail.google.com/*       |
|http*://www.google.com/reader/* |
|http*://twitter.com/*           |
|                                |
+--------------------------------+

e.g. http*://mail.google.com/*
This will disable Vimium on Gmail.

Enter one URL per line.

That should be pretty simple to do per tab, depending on what the Chrome Extensions API exposes. (If not, I might have to dig deeper and do script injection -- yuck.)

I can't speak to a timeframe on implementing either of your requests (although I like both of them) since Carousel is something I maintain in my spare time. If you know JavaScript, contributions are welcome! :) If not, I'll take a look later this week. Cleaning up after Hurricane Irene has to take priority. :S

But of course. I totally appreciate your efforts here. You've made the nicest looking and most polished carousel-er yet!

If I can be of any help, I will definitely do so. No promises there though of course ;)

All the best during hurricane cleanup. It did some damage in Eastern Canada as well I've heard!

+1 on this request... all the Chrome plugins seem to be lacking this capability. There is a FireFox plugin that allows disabling automatic refresh for a given tab that may refresh itself already via Ajax calls.
