I have dozens of tabs open in different windows. Sometimes, I can't find an oft visited tab such as GMail or Pandora. Is there any Chrome extension which would allow me to quickly search for a tab?

Perhaps its a bit more than you're looking for, but vimium has this feature. Press Shift + t and a search bar appears in which you can type the name of the tab you want and pres enter to jump to it.

vimium is great but it is indeed a lot more than i was looking for. –  Artem Shnayder Nov 28 '12 at 21:13
    
It unfortunate that you can't disable its features or remap the hotkeys. –  James Porter Nov 29 '12 at 0:00

Have you tried tab expose?

I use in conjuction with tab split and tab manager, they all perform small, different functions very well.

Can you give me some more detail about what each does? –  Artem Shnayder Nov 28 '12 at 20:51
    
tab expose is similar to TooManyTabs as it let's you navigate all your open tabs. The other two are useful if you use multiple windows at once: tab split created a new window with all the tabs at the right of the current one. tab manager open a popup where you can move tab between all your open windows. –  igon Nov 29 '12 at 3:38

Try one of the following extensions that offer tab searching capabilities, among various other useful features:

  1. Quick Tabs:

    1

  2. TooManyTabs:

TooManyTabs looks like the right way to go but unfortunately there's an error when installing on Mac right now. –  Artem Shnayder Nov 28 '12 at 21:13

I've decided to go with Tabs Outliner, it looks like a Tree Style Tabs inspired extension from Firefox.
