Request for testers – TabFern tab-at-a-time support

Three tabs open; two tabs closed but still saved!

My TabFern tab-management Chrome extension is ready for its next great leap and I need your help!  For years, TabFern has been all-or-nothing: all the tabs in a window are open, or none of them are.  Prerelease version 0.3.0-pre.1 removes that limitation.  If the instructions below are your speed, or you already know how to load unpacked Chrome extensions, would you please install TabFern 0.3.0-pre.1 and let me know how it works for you?  Please report problems through the GitHub issues page.  Once this release has had some testing, I will roll it out to the over 1,000 users of TabFern!  Thanks very much for your help, and for using TabFern!

(Reminder: as always — and especially when testing prereleases — backup early and often!  TabFern comes with no warranty of any kind!)

Installing

  1. Download the zip from here.
  2. Unzip it into a directory of your choice.
  3. In Chrome, go to chrome://extensions.
  4. Turn on the toggle in the upper-right that says “Developer mode”.
  5. Near the top left, click “Load unpacked”.
  6. Navigate to the directory where you unzipped the extension and hit OK.  (There’s no specific file to select — just go into the unzip location and then hit OK.)
  7. That’s it!  The TabFern popup window and the help window will open up.
