When you pin a tab, you no longer see the numbered update counts (right) for things such as Gmail, Twitter, and other services that give you a live count on the browser bar of new things going on within the page since the last time you were active on that tab.

How to make chrome pin tab and display title too?

Edit: Close some tabs or uninstall extensions that take a lot of memory. If there's a specific tab you don't want discarded, right-click on the tab and pin it. I found this not work. When the memory is too low, it will reload, either. In the chrome://discards/,the pin tab is also on top which means it is most closet to be discarded! Why? enter image description here

    For clarification, what feature of tab pinning are you wanting to keep while still seeing the title? Chrome can launch multiple tabs on startup if you're just wanting your mail to always be available. – int_541 Apr 15 '16 at 6:47
  • I'm uploading some important files. I must pin it to avoid chrome auto reload the important tab( high memory will make a tab reload on chrome). I want to see the uploading state now, e.g. 12 of 155 uploading. @int_541 – fly931 Apr 15 '16 at 7:00

    @fly931 If you want to prevent tabs from reloading when memory usage is high, go to chrome://flags and make sure Automatic tab discarding is set to 'Disabled' – InterLinked Apr 18 '16 at 16:19

    All if these comments are pointless since they don't address the OP's actual question but rather harass him about why he's asking. – Josh Stone Mar 22 '17 at 22:35

You are a bit out of luck. As of today, there doesn't seem to be a way to avoid that.

There are tools leveraging the pin functionality but that still removes whatever custom title you choose.

I would suggest using something like "Tab Modifier" and not pinning the tab but instead protecting it and applying your own name/icon. Hope this helps :/
