If you are researching on something, it is of no surprise that you will have multiple tabs open in your Chrome browser. These tabs not only clutter the tab bar, but also make it difficult for you to know which tab contains which page. This means that you cannot quickly find a tab that contains the page you want to view. Fortunately, you can easily overcome this problem by managing the open tabs via the Tab Menu extension. If you seriously have the problem of tab overload, the Tab Menu deserves to be the best tab companion so that you can obtain the control of your tabs back.

Getting The Tab Menu Extension

The extension is available for download at the URL, https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/galfofdpepkcahkfobimileafiobdplb. On this page, you just need to click the Add to Chrome button for installing the extension.

Using The Tab Menu Extension

With the help of the Tab Menu extension, you can directly jump to the desired tab for viewing the page under it, close a tab, re-arrange tabs in the order that you desire, and search tabs by URL or name. After installing the extension, just click its icon and all the currently opened tabs will appear in the drop-down list.

To go through the tabs in the drop-down list, use the keyboard and press Tab, arrow, or Shift + Tab keys rather than using the mouse clicks. To switch to a tab for viewing the Web page in it, just click it from the drop-down list. This time, it will be easy to identify the tab that you want to view, as the tab titles are fully visible in the drop-down list. You can also hover your mouse over a tab on the tab bar to view the full title.

Apart from that, you can also move a tab in the list by simply dragging it. This will change the position of that tab in the list and on the bar as well. You can also close a tab by selecting it from the drop-down list and clicking the x icon at its right end.
