Is there a way to get some sort of indication which tabs were spawned from a certain window.

sort of like this Firefox Addon

or like the way the tabs are coloured in the latest IE

I've made a feature request regarding adding such a feature to Chrome, so it would be available from the box. In case anybody is interested, join discussion here: – Feb 26 '14 at 12:05
@Nathaniel, How does this work? What do you mean by "coloured"? – Pacerier Jun 8 '15 at 23:26
If i remember correctly, I was talking about the feature in IE9 where when you spawn new tabs off an existing tab, IE will colour the original tab and any offspring tabs a certain colour. As an example, i open a tab and search fdsa on google, then from that tab, I open two links, all three tabs are coloured blue. If i then create a new tab, do a google image search, open the first link, the second two tabs are coloured pink – Nathaniel Saxe Jun 10 '15 at 8:25

Tabs Outliner is the best. Works perfectly.

You can give a try to TooManyTabs for chrome. It shows the opened tab in the thumbnail view. Also like FF their is the same addon for Chrome is available Tree Style Tab which is in beta state so many bugs will be. You can also give a try to IE Tab Multi (Enhance) which gives the experience of IE on Chrome.
