Automatically Close Inactive Tabs In Google Chrome

Tabbed browsing is incredibly a useful feature for browsers that lets you open several websites at the same time and lets you switch between web pages quickly. But, you can do much more with browser tabs. For example, if you’ve a habit of opening too many tabs and forget to close those that you’ve stopped using can be closed automatically.

For Google Chrome, there is an extension called Tab Wrangler that lets automatically close browser tabs that have been inactive for seven minutes (default time). If that time limit seems too short, you can increase it in the Options panel.

Moreover, you can lock certain web addresses from the option panel, so that they are never closed. Tab Wrangler also lets you ‘wrangle’ (re-open) tabs that you want back.

Download Tab Wrangler for Google Chrome.

Firefox users can try the add-on Close Other Tabs, which lets you use keyboard shortcuts to close inactive tabs in a jiffy.
