★ The project is no more maintained ★

Although I used it a lot, I feel less and less need for such an advanced way to manage my tabs. Aside from my full-time job, I have not much time left to put in this project.

Even, if this project ends, I thank all of you that used the extension or helped me to make this extension so great.

The project remains:
- Available: you continue to use it
- Open-source: you are free to fork it or reuse the code

- Firefox: [Simple Tab Groups](
- Actively maintained and with more features
- But no more pinned tabs inside groups and the double window to manage the tabs
- Chrome: nothing I am aware of

Sync Tab Groups is an easy way to manage all your tabs. You organize them depending on a topic by group. Groups can be closed and reopened without caring about your session. Moreover, you can easily search, active, move, save and remove your groups and tabs.

Check the website ( for more information (video, explanations, guides...)

A group has a name and contains many tabs related. It is either displayed in a window. Or closed, and waiting the next time you will use it. You can switch from one to another in your current window or in another window.

With your groups, you won't care about stopping a task and focusing on another one. With the possibility to search and activate tabs and groups, you won't lose time to retrieve them.

A popup is usable from anywhere in your browser. It shows your groups and let you do the actions with just few clicks. More than just activating tabs, you can move and close them.

Eine wunderbare Arbeitshilfe. Solid, praktisch, einfach. Ein grosses Kompliment an die Entwickler. Klar es wirkt designmässig ein wenig klobig. Doch wen kümmert's? Solange der Workflow dadurch gewährleistet ist, hat die Funktionalität seine Aufgabe erfüllt. Was ich mir wünsche, wenn ich mir etwas wünschen dürfte? Die automatische Synchronisation zwischen den Geräten. Das wird wohl aus Abgrenzungsgründen nicht so einfach sein…

Dang, this extension is useful and even a tech dummy like me can use it easily. I always have tabs open for a dozen topics, and several for each topic. It is super easy to create a new topic and assign each tab to a topic. You use the topics like folders on Windows, just horizontally. I click on the topic I called "Writing", and see all my tabs for writing. I click on it again, and the Writing tabs disappear behind the topic name. More than fifty tabs open, and all I see are the topics, not all fifty tabs. This also solves the problem that you open a new tab, and you need to use keyboard shortcuts to actually see it, because the new tab no longer fits at the browser's top tab row. Thanks to the devs for the ease-of-use and the functionality.

Tengo grupos creados, y de la nada se borran

Of all the web extensions I have, THIS IS THE BEST! I use it all the time. My searches take me on varying routs, but I easily open the manager and pull the new tabs into an existing group or make a new one.
I'm glad you are busy with life, and this app will stand a long time as a tribute to your time and give to the rest of us! Thank you So Much!

Хорошо бы ещё добавить облачную синхронизацию, тогда вообще было бы супер.
