Gibbon Tabs is a free Chrome tab manager extension to save and restore multiple sessions. In simpler words, you can save all tabs and reopen all of them at once using it. By default, in Chrome you can only restore the last working session or tabs from the History >> Closed Recent option. But with this Chrome tab manager, you can save your every working session and restore it anytime. Apart from this main feature, you can also see currently opened tabs by URL and title, and switch between them effortlessly. In addition to this, you can also search for tabs by text to quickly find specific ones, if you have opened a large number of them.
There are many Chrome tab manager extensions available in the market but I believe that Gibbon Tabs does this work very neatly and efficiently. This Chrome extension can prove its real worth when you want to save all opened tabs and reopen them again for later use. This feature is quite similar to set tabs aside feature of Microsoft Edge. If you are a Firefox user, then you can check out these Firefox tab manager add-ons.
