I'm thinking about moving over to Chrome full time

one of the features i like the most is the "pin tab" how ever im frustrated that when i close the browser and reopen it the pinned tabs open to what was last on the page and not what originally pinned (gmail, timesheet, wiki , etc)

is there anyway to do something similar to firefox4's app tab?

If you go into the Options page, there is an On Startup option in the Basics tab. In this, you can set any number of pages to open when Chrome starts.

    The OP is specifically asking whether pinned tabs can remember the last page they were on. I don't think this is possible, because there is really nothing to be "configured" about Chrome. (Which is why I'll happily keep using Firefox 4.0b2.) Aug 10, 2010 at 21:14
  • @Paul: I understood the opposite - he wants the tabs to remember their original state, not the last state they had. Aug 10, 2010 at 21:22

    @Crash893: In which case, set gmail as a url in the panel shown above and it should always open when you open your browser. Aug 15, 2010 at 20:16

    But the tab won't be pinned anymore.

This might help you, it looks like someone has written an extension to do it https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/forever-pinned/nigigpmchbpkjjgncmpiggfnikllldlh?hl=en-GB
