Smart TabS

BETA

Overview

It is a browser extension that will organize a heap of tabs in a smart - easy to read way.

To be short.

Suppose you have opened the following tabs:

  • "Tab about Biden #1"
  • "Tab about Trump #1"
  • "Tab about Biden #2"
  • "Tab about Trump #2"
  • "Tab about democrats"
  • "Tab about republicans"

Then Smart TabS will group them by relevance:

  • "Tab about Biden #1"
  • "Tab about Biden #2"
  • "Tab about democrats"
  • "Tab about Trump #1"
  • "Tab about Trump #2"
  • "Tab about republicans"

Although it may look simple and yet it is a powerful tool that:

  • ensures smooth reading flow
  • saves your time on relevant tab search and switching
  • helps to reveal implicit insights and story behind
  • sparks new ideas

And more is yet to come. Stay tuned.

Supported languages: english, russian, ukrainian.
Others are partially supported.

Tested on ourselves. :)

Privacy

Smart TabS operates fully locally.

It does not collect any excessive data and
does not send anything outside of your browser.

Extension operations in incognito mode are forbidden on a browser level.

There is no even any analytics.
Therefore we would appreciate your feedback via an email or GitHub.

Settings

You can exclude domain pages from being processed by Smart TabS.

For example, it could be Web Apps that do not have much meaningful content or if its content is too sensitive.

If this is the case, then just go to the extension preferences page, add that domain to "Excluded domains" list, and hit "Save".

Browser support

Smart TabS has been build on top of cross-browser WebExtension API, which is supported by Firefox, Chrome, and Chromium-based browsers.
But only Firefox and Chrome has been tested.

Apple has added WebExtension support in Safari, starting from version 14.
But has not implemented a tab move feature.
Until then, Smart TabS can not be used for Safari.

And some other refinements as well.
