Been using now for a long time. Still a great addon!
I am now using this addon on all four of my OS's. It's still perfect, and does exactly what it is designed to do. Let you know when you've reached YOUR preset limit for open tabs, and nag you until you do something about it.
Every poor review here except one is baseless. This addon is not a popup blocker. To complain it doesn't work as one is just ridiculous. There are no "bugs" but it could use some few improvements a program not working the way you want it to is not a bug. A bug is when a program does things it shouldn't. This one does nothing it shouldn't do as far as I can tell. I don't even understand the suggestion to put a warning dialog in it. It has a warning dialog. It opens by default unless you set it to silent mode, gives you a list of all open tabs in all windows, and allows YOU to choose which ones should be closed.
Some added features might be nice, but frankly I don't think they are a good idea.
@ the developer: If I were you I would ditch silent mode altogether until you get it working in a more sophisticated manner. (with settings we can set to determine its behavior). I know that could be complicated and probably tend to be buggy. I would just get rid of it.
@users considering this addon: Keep in mind that tabs ARE windows. There is no difference. The only difference is in how they are displayed. Therefore, "windows" and "tabs" within this addon are the same thing. When the alert pops up, you get list of ALL tabs in ALL windows. It doesn't differentiate between tabs in one window or another. You've got to READ the list, and THINK.
This is not a lazy man's addon.
It is a simple way for you to limit your own sloppy behavior, and nag you to clean up after yourself.
It also a fantastic tool for Administrators. Install this thing on all your department computers, set it to "Force" and set a password. It'll force your users to clean up their acts, and quit wasting your time complaining their programs won't respond.
Does exactly what I need! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I'm a TMP user, and configure TMP to force most links to open in new tabs. This helps me keep my surfing organized, but it also results in many open tabs over time. I've been asking the TMP team to write in a limiting feature for years. This add on does the job perfectly.
Some of the complaints in other reviews have been addressed by now. Password protection is there and the ability to choose which tab/window will close are included.
It doesn't differentiate between windows and tabs, and I believe there is a good reason for that. A tab is just a window displayed as a tab. A "window" is just a group of windows.
No offense to anyone here, but man, how much to you REALLY need an add on to do for you? At least it tells you when you're exceeding your limit. How hard is it to close the windows on your own? Adding that to the addon's function seems unnecessarily redundant.
As far as I am concerned, all I needed was SOMETHING to tell me a limit had been reached, and to force me to start cleaning up.
This add on does that. I don't expect or want it to do the clean up for me. Just remind me.
This is perfect.
