Whenever you find yourself with too many tabs, click the OneTab icon to convert all of your tabs into a list. When you need to access the tabs again, you can either restore them individually or all at once.
When your tabs are in the OneTab list, you will save memory and CPU utilization because you will have reduced the number of tabs open in your browser.
Information about your tabs are never transmitted or disclosed to either the OneTab developers or any other party. The only exception to this is if you intentionally click on our 'share as a web page' feature that allows you to upload your list of tabs into a web page in order to share them with others. Tabs are never shared unless you specifically use the 'share as a web page' button.
Depending on how many scripts are running inside your tabs, moving them to OneTab can also speed up your computer by reducing the CPU load. We have also had reports that this also contributes to your computer resuming from sleep more quickly.
FAQ: Why do I need OneTab, when I can just use my browser history?
A: Your browser history contains every site you've ever visited. OneTab is typically used to store just the smaller selection of open tabs you are not finished with yet - such as when you are mid way through researching a topic.
FAQ: Why do I need OneTab, when I can just use the "bookmark all tabs" browser feature?
A: OneTab is the quickest way, with only one click, to store all of your open tabs into a list. Once they are in your list, OneTab makes it much easier to scan over, delete, label and manage your list of saved tabs. There are also plenty of special options and features, such as the ability to exclude certain web sites, to remove duplicates, and to export/import tabs.
Update March 2015:
A small minority of people are seeing a blank page instead of their OneTab tabs. We're very sorry about this, and have tracked it down to a long standing issue with the Firefox automatic extension update mechanism. Although the vast majority of the users of this add-on have not had any issues at all, this is clearly a big problem for those affected.
If you are affected by this issue, it's most probable that you can restore these tabs using the Windows System Restore feature, the Mac Time Machine feature, or with any backup solution you're using. Please see this page for instructions: http://www.one-tab.com/firefoxRestore
We're soon going to release a new version that uses Firefox's indexed database. In fact, it'll store data simultaneously in simple-storage and in indexed-db, so if one fails then the other should provide a backup that we can automatically fail-over to.
In addition to that, we're soon releasing the cloud sync version of OneTab, so your data will be stored twice on your computer and optionally a third time in the cloud for 100% confidence in the safety of your stored tabs.
