I've tried a few extensions but I wasn't very satisfied, I'm basically looking for an extension that allows me to group sets of tabs in such a way that I'm able to quickly switch between the groups within the same window. That is to say, if I had 5 Wikipedia tabs and 5 Stack Exchange tabs, ideally I would create 2 groups, hide the tabs of one of them, and switch between the Wikipedia and Stack Exchange tabs back and forth as I need without leaving the same window (note that I'm not specifically looking for grouping by site, that was just a simplified example)

Does an extension like this exist?

PS: No, I don't actually have 5 Wikipedia tabs open while browsing Stack Exchange sites :-)

Why the downvote? I did search before asking, the reason I ask is because I could not find any that meets what I describe. – Mahn Aug 31 '12 at 3:27
Probable reason for down vote is that we basicly don't do software recommendations any more read some discussion on it – Nifle Aug 31 '12 at 7:18
@Nifle I see, I noticed many questions like these in past at SU, hence why I didn't think it was not welcome. – Mahn Aug 31 '12 at 17:15

How could that be implemented ? You already have the ctrl+tab to naviguate quickly between tabs, you would need another shortcut to naviguate between tab groups... It's already possible.

The solution I think of is to manage your windows groups by browser windows instead. According to your exemple, you would split wiki and so on two different windows and then you got alt+tab to switch between groups and ctrl+tab to switch between websites tabs. It's simple !

You would be surprised how fast does the windows (7) taskbar clutter while working on a large project, even if the windows are grouped by application. If I could show/hide chrome windows on demand I suppose that could also work. – Mahn Aug 31 '12 at 17:20
Do you know the reduce shortcut ? alt+space and press n it's very usefull – B2F Sep 1 '12 at 13:38
Now all we need is an option to move a group of tabs to their own window. – MrFox Feb 25 '13 at 15:35
