Will need to dl site icon probably
This would be very helpful. Something akin to the mouse-over of the windows in the tray. Sometimes you store the look and layout of the page in your memory as a way to find it in the future without paying much attention to the page's title. This is more efficient than trying to remember the title of every window. Sometimes the windows don't have the most descriptive titles, or different looking windows may have similar titles. Going through and typing a comment for each window is quite inefficient too.
I'm not sure what the best way to implement this is. Maybe show a picture in a tooltip when you mouse-over each list item, maybe a new view entirely which shows a picture of all windows. Another idea is a menu-like system, similar to the task bar in windows 7 where if you mouse-over a window, a menu showing pictures of each tab shows up. Humans seem to do well with sorting things to tree-like structures such as this so I think it would be easy to navigate.

Actually if for this need to hover every single window to popup its thumbnail - it's not.
I am actually never feels that i need this feature. Not sure i want to bloat a simple program by such things. There is a lot of tabs manager with this features and they never satisfy me. The idea looks cool but only when you have 2-3 screens of such thumbnails, or 5-7 windows to hover.
To compare - my current tree meantime have ~20 000 saved tabs...
Hi, I have paid for the pro version, however there is a popup whenever I delete more than 3 tabs in the tabs outliner window.
As the title suggests I like the idea of having the Tabs Outliner window at the very top of my window list and having it remain there even when I reopen Chrome (which happens quite a lot). You can only have one instance of the TO popup window anyway and you can't open another tab in that window (a new window is created as a parent instead), why not just save it? I'm pretty confident that this is possible.
I saw some similar ideas but I think my propose is quite different.
The window where tabs outliner runs is separate from main window. My monitor is 17" not wide screen. I cannot use it that way... Even on widescreen it takes a lot of space.
So at linux I coded a script that when the mouse is near the left edge of the screen and was already above normal chromium window, tabs outliner window is shown;
It runs each 0.1s;
When it moves away from that window and to above normal chromium window, the normal window it is shown (so tabs outliner window goes to behind it). Other windows of other applications are protected from that behavior.
EDIT: the script also detects a url was clicked on tabs ouliner and automatically activates the normal chromium window!
I think you may be able to use the "on top" window flag to do that trick that may work on all OSs, when the mouse reaches the left edge of normal chromium window! EDIT: Just toggle on top, and toggle back again so release its top towards other applications.
PS.: my script probably only works on linux, it is a bash script...
"on top" window flag is unfortunately is not accessible to Chrome extensions.
So this behavior is only possible using the external system utilities to manage window.
I would like to use this extension like "tree style tabs" of firefox:
There, you save about 40px of horizontal screen space by listing only the tabs of the current window. It could be simply done by giving the option to hide the "session" and "window" tabs. Then the element far left will be the first open tab.
This shows current behavior when creating a new Note, for example:
I think it would work better if it instead scrolled like this:
This lets you continue viewing the rest of the list when a new node is created. Whenever I create a note or window, it's usually because I'm going to put other things inside it, and put it in another category. Having to scroll back up when I create a Note feels a bit silly, especially with so much empty space being shown instead of the list.
There is the separate issue of how the editing prompt could be improved, which I've filed as a separate idea.
This is mostly a quick hack. One line instead of the day of work and tests... But it must be fixed of course, and replaced by a more polished solution.
