Any chrome extension to delete inactive tabs?

harshvats2000 profile image HARSH VATS ・1 min read

Do you know any chrome extension to automatically close all inactive tabs after some time.

Also i should be able to change inactivity time for each website. Like if i have set 10 minutes of inactivity time, then extension should automatically close all stackoverflow tabs that i haven't visited in last 10 minutes.

I can set less time for github repo's i've opened.

I mean, i should have the flexibility to change websites and their inactivity time.

I don't think there's any chrome extension there which can do that, that's why I'm working to make one.

If there's any plz let me know now :)

Thanks developers

I have been using this which is free Tab suspend. Recently this feature got built into the Chromium Edge.

and I think extensions do not have permissions to close tabs.

I don't know about other browsers but chrome extensions have permission to close tabs. I just made it, you can try it chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/...
The frontend will be updated in a day. It solves my problems, hope it solves yours too.

They are also some other fun extensions that you may like youtube.com/playlist?list=PLNQq42p...

No you cannot. What you can do is suspend after a time and based on a condition

I like tabwrangler. It does most of what you're talking about. You can set an inactivity threshold that automatically closes tabs (but keeps the url on a list in the extension just in case you need the tab back). The one thing it doesn't have is a per domain threshold like you're looking for I don't think.
