Chrome Extensions for Dealing with Large Numbers of Tabs

I typically have 80-100 tabs open in Chrome at any given time. Occasionally, finding a specific tab in that forest can be a problem, but a couple of Chrome extensions make it a breeze to manage.

Tab Count adds a button that displays the total number of tabs that are open in Chrome. When the user clicks on the button, a drop down appears showing a clickable list of all the pages currently open. Clicking one of the links changes the focus to that tab.

That works for most things, but occasionally I’m working on something where I’ve got several articles open about the same subject but I can’t remember which one has the specific bit of information I wanted to reference.

Search Plus takes care of these problems. Click the Search Plus icon and a pop up search box appears. Type in any phrase and Search Plus will quickly give you a list of open tabs where that phrase appears. Click on a specific result, and the browser focus changes to that specific tab.
