I'm a chronic tab-opener, and I find myself frustrated with being unable to find the important tabs when I have multiple tabs and windows open. What I'd like to be able to do is to "set" a hotkey to a particular tab (say, control alt T for a tab involving travel) so that when I press that key I can return to that tab regardless of what window. I know about the Control + number and Control + Pgup/pgdown shortcuts, but I need something to quickly sort to relevant tabs, not just the next tab. What is a good way of doing this that would allow me to quickly and painlessly re-map keys to tabs as I see fit, and delete the hotkeys when the browser closes?

  • If you pin your important tabs they will be grouped together on the left, making them easy to find. – AFH Apr 1 '17 at 16:31

So I made this Chrome extension for you. Feedback welcome.

  • Unfortunately, while I am able to set a tab, I am unable to return to it. I can check to see if other extensions are using alt + G, but I disabled one that was already, and nothing else is happening at that command. Thanks for the effort, though! :) – camelCaseCowboy Apr 9 '17 at 15:02
  • I would suggest you to restart the browser after installation. – arpitnext Apr 9 '17 at 16:23
