Clutter Free – v. 2018.0822.5.10

Setting: Ignore hash/fragments in URLs

Added an option to ignore hash/fragment sections in URLs when comparing for duplicates.

Enable this functionality in Options ⇒ Advanced Settings ⇒ Ignore Hash. It is disabled by default, and not recommended.

When enabled, two tabs with URLs: ‘c306.net/apps‘ and ‘c306.net/apps/#clutterfreeCard‘ will be considered duplicates and one of them closed. This is the expected behaviour if the fragment points to a section in the same page. However, in many modern web apps, the fragment may point to a different page that you may want to open separately. In this scenario, the ignore hash setting will wrongly close the second tab as duplicate.

Clutter Free – Google Analytics removed

ver. 2018.0531.5.9

Google Analytics completely removed

Clutter Free used Google Analytics to track which settings and functions were being used – to help focus developer attention on what was being used.

I have now completely removed all analytics tracking from the extension. The extension now does not use any network requests, ensuring any user data stays on the computer.

This also means that I shall have no insight into features that are popular, or broken. So, please share your views using the feedback link in the extension (or by going here).

Clutter Free – v. 2017.615.4.15

A bug fix and a minor update:

  1. Bug fix: Duplicate tabs were not being closed if ‘don’t move original tab’ was selected in options. Fixed.
  2. Update: On installation, and on startup, Clutter Free checks for any duplicate tabs that were already open. Notification is displayed, with a button to close duplicates, if any are found.
