Search Plus: Search Tabs By Keywords & Sort Them By Title, URL & Time [Chrome]


One of the bigger nuisances associated with working with a large number of tabs, is the tab handles getting squeezed so close together that favicons disappear. Then, at other times, you might want to quickly search a word or phrase across all opened tabs, close a set of tabs or shift existing tabs into a new window. Search Plus is a browser extension for Chrome that offers you a set of useful features that improve your tabbed browsing experience. The extension acts like a search engine for the tabs that you have open. It helps to find the tabs you’re looking for provided you can enter the name of the site you are looking for. Search is done across windows so it matters little which window a tab is open in. The extension will let you preform various operations, such as search a specific text string through all tabs, collect tabs into a single window, insert text to the titles of tabs, capture images from tabs and more.

After installing the extension, all you have to do is click the button in the toolbar and enter the keyword in the pop-up window. This nifty little tool will then display a list of matching tab titles in a new pop-up window, along with Sort by, Operate, Select and Get All Tabs options. Additionally, the keywords you search for are saved in a Recent Search drop-down menu.

All matching search results will be displayed in a list. Each item in the list comes with a checkbox that you can click in order to select tabs. Once you’ve selected a set of tabs, you will be able to sort them by Default Order, Title, URL and Opened Time. You will also be able to access all your previous search terms by clicking the Recent Search option.

The Operate drop-down menu allows you to Close selected tabs, Collect selected tabs in a single window, Insert a text to the title of selected tabs etc, whereas the Select option lets you Select all tabs, Deselect all tabs and more.


Search Plus gives you fast search capabilities, letting you efficiently manage all your open tabs. With it, you can quickly search tabs by keywords and apply various useful operations on them. If you find yourself working with too many tabs, then you should definitely give this extension a try.
