chrome-limit-open-tabs

A Chrome extension helping compulsive tab-openers by limiting the number of tabs they can open.

In the current state this extension does not disallow Chrome from opening tabs. It simply displays the number of open unpinned tabs as a badge in the icon bar.

Screenshot

TODO / Feature backlog

  • disallow Chrome from opening tabs when limit reached
  • options screen to customize the limit of open tabs
  • option to count pinned tabs, default is to ignore them
  • option to count per window or across browser session
  • soft limit: don't strictly disallow tab opening, support for tab bursts but warn/alert after a given time (e.g. 5 mins)
  • change icon color depending on number of open tabs (closer to limit => red)
You can’t perform that action at this time.
