I'm thinking about moving over to Chrome full time

one of the features i like the most is the "pin tab" how ever im frustrated that when i close the browser and reopen it the pinned tabs open to what was last on the page and not what originally pinned (gmail, timesheet, wiki , etc)

is there anyway to do something similar to firefox4's app tab?

If you go into the Options page, there is an On Startup option in the Basics tab. In this, you can set any number of pages to open when Chrome starts.

The OP is specifically asking whether pinned tabs can remember the last page they were on. I don't think this is possible, because there is really nothing to be "configured" about Chrome. (Which is why I'll happily keep using Firefox 4.0b2.) – Paul Lammertsma Aug 10 '10 at 21:14
@Paul: I understood the opposite - he wants the tabs to remember their original state, not the last state they had. – adrianbanks Aug 10 '10 at 21:22
you are correct. I want my gmail tab to stay gmail everytime i open it. – Crash893 Aug 12 '10 at 15:18
@Crash893: In which case, set gmail as a url in the panel shown above and it should always open when you open your browser. – adrianbanks Aug 15 '10 at 20:16
But the tab won't be pinned anymore. – DevAntoine Jun 12 '14 at 7:19
