What’s New

Version 2.0

Pinned-Tabs Support: Pinned tabs are not considered or included in the minimum tab aging algorithm.

Window Support: The tab aging algorithm can be per window or for all windows.

Delay Active Support: Choosing this will not consider a tab as active for 3 seconds. This allows for clicking around the tabs to find a tab to not reset the age on those briefly viewed tabs.

Note: This changed underlying technologies and will not preserve your settings. They will be reset to reasonable defaults.
