For me, I want to avoid having 100's of tabs open so that Chrome is not taking so much memory.

Also, another idea - optionally do a "lazy load" of tabs when restoring a Window.  
By the way this is not fixed at all, I don't see why it is marked fixed.
In my case I do not want Tabs Outliner to maintain my session at all.  I want to let Google Chrome maintain and restore sessions.  For me, Tabs Outliner should only allow me to save windows and tabs that I may want later.

So, I am not interested in having real crashed Windows displayed because Google Chrome will restore them for me if I ask. Also, I will have Chrome set to restore tabs from last time and then Tabs Outliner will display them properly.

Does that make sense?
