Supporters can now assign custom actions for up to five keyboard shortcuts. Currently supported keyboard actions are:

  1. Open tab search window¹

  3. Duplicate current tab
  4. Close all duplicate tabs
  5. Toggle between active and passive modes
  6. Add current webpage URL or domain to allow/block list
  7. Add current webpage domain to domain block-list²
  8. Pin or un-pin current tab
  9. Suspend or un-suspend current tab³
  10. Move current tab to first or last position in current Chrome window
  11. Open Clutter Free options page
  12. Open Chrome settings page

I may add more options for keyboard shortcut actions to support any new features or based on feedback suggestions. So please share your feedback using the feedback button on tab search or the options page.

For non-supporters, the original set of keyboard actions continue to be available:

  1. Duplicate current tab
  2. Toggle between active and passive modes
  3. Add current webpage URL to allow/block list
  4. Move current tab to last position in current Chrome window
  5. Add current webpage domain to allow/block list

Other updates

  • Minor updates to notifications and tab search screen

That’s all, folks!

Please share your feedback, including suggestions and any bugs you find using the feedback link on tab search or the options page.

Clutter Free – more tab actions, and ‘ignore query’

Screenshot 2020-07-07 at 17.56.19.png

More tab actions—pin and move in window

New tab actions added to tab search window:

  1. Move tab to first position in its window (after pinned tabs, if any),
  2. Move tab to the last position in its window
  3. Pin or un-pin tabs (supporters only)

This is in addition to previous tab actions:

  1. Duplicate tabs
  2. Add tab to allow/block list
  3. Add tab’s domain to allow/block list
  4. Suspend or un-suspend tab (supporters only)
  5. Open tab in a new window

Tabs can also be pinned/un-pinned using the keyboard shortcut ‘p‘.

New search keyword—pinned tabs

Use ‘is:pinned‘ to search only pinned tabs. ‘-is:pinned‘ searches only in unpinned tabs.

This keyword may be used together with regular search words and the ‘is:suspended‘ keyword.

New: Copy tabs to clipboard

Use the copy button, next to the tab count, in tab search window to copy tabs to clipboard.

  • Copies tab title and URL
  • Copies tabs filtered in tabs list
  • For suspended tabs, the original URL is copied

Use the setting on options page to specify the format of copied text—plain text, Markdown, or URLs only.

New: Ignore query when comparing duplicates

Screenshot 2020-07-07 at 18.15.27.png

‘Ignore query’ option is now available as an experimental option (bottom of options page). When enabled, the query portion of the URL is ignore when preventing duplicates. E.g. ‘https://www.google.com/‘ and ‘https://www.google.com/?hl=hi‘ will appear as duplicates.

Enabling this setting may cause unexpected behaviour on many sites. Using the query parameter to refer to distinct content is a common web practice.

Other updates

  • Suspend tab button is disabled for chrome:// and chrome-extension:// tabs as these can’t be suspended by The Great Suspender
  • Bug fix: Selected tab lost focus after an action in tab search
  • delete, home, end, and enter keys were not working in filter text input field

Clutter Free – v. 2017.605.4.12

The direct switch icon is now hidden by default. Direct switch still works as before – directly switching to open tab when a link is clicked. The link highlight icon can be enabled from settings as before.

Other minor updates:

  1. Bug fix: Clutter Free will now not close duplicate tabs if they are pinned.
  2. Bug fix: Sometimes the tab count was zero when the browser started, or extension was updated. Fixed.
  3. Updated the on install process. Do not open options page. Instead, detect duplicate tabs already open, and show a notification offering to close them.
