Here’s a list of 5 tab manager extensions for Google Chrome which can help you out in situations when you have multiple tabs open. Having multiple tabs open isn’t very problematic if you have only a couple of them open, but when you have several dozens of tabs active, well then things get quite a bit interesting. The most irritating thing that can happen with a lot of tabs open is an accidental click on the X icon which closes down the selected tab. Here are tab manager extensions for Chrome that can help you avoid that.
After installation, extension creates an icon in the top right corner, the usual. Clicking on the icon opens up a list of all the open tabs. Tab Manager allows you to search through open tabs using a search engine, create new tabs or windows, close them, to change the length of the tab so that more of them can fit on screen and much more.

Project Tab Manager
Project Tab Manager allows you to save all currently open tabs as a project (in a folder). This is useful if you have a lot of tabs open and if you want to group them all together and save to continue working on them later on.
Another thing that this extension can do is keep track of time that you spend within a certain tab, to help you keep track of productivity. For example if you’re editing documents using Google Docs.
