vSpecialist Little Gems – Number 2

I recently found a little gem that may or not be widely known….

Persistent Tabs in Google Chrome

I’m a recent convert to Google Chrome, having been using Firefox on Windows and Mac for several years. There are many things about Chrome I like, but one of the annoyances was I missed Firefox’s ability to save a set of tabs and have them re-open when launching a new browser.

This morning, I had a delve into Chrome’s settings, and found the answer – here’s how to do it:

  1. Click on the  button in Chrome.
  2. Select ‘Settings’ from the menu.
  3. Select ‘Show Advanced Settings’ from the bottom of the basic settings list.
  4. Under the ‘On Start Up’ section, select the ‘Continue Where I Left Off’ setting.
  5. That’s it! When you re-open Chrome, all it’s tabs will be preserved.
  6. (Note: Session cookies will be saved, so any logins will be preserved, subject to timeouts….)
As I mentioned, may not be new to many, but it was new to me! Enjoy.
