  • A prevent pinned tabs from closing plugin
    It is an excellent extension of this plugin that together will allow you to organize important tabs for instance to the very left, and once pinned, they will always stay there.

If you have been using the mouse to move your tabs to the left tab corner, you probably already know. It's tedious work, especially on Linux where it barely even works. Even if you make the effort to organize 3 or 4 tabs, eventually they will get closed down, usually by accident which has been killing us for years.
Finally, after waiting many years for this functionality, we decided to create a plugin that allow you to move a tab left and right using your keyboard .
When this and prevent a pinned tab from closing plugin are used together, you could pin the most important and frequently used files, then move the pinned tabs to the left corner using the keyboard and they will always stay there! You always know now where your files and tabs are located. There is no need to bring up that dialog to search for it, just to make the switch because you can't find it among all opened tabs!
A big productivy booster, you'll see! Managing and ordering your files and tabs is essential for productivity. Firefox showed the way in 2000 but there is still long way to go. We will continue to release plugins targeting this exact area. Productivity for all developers. It's our passion.
