Some more new favorite Google Chrome extensions of mine are the Gmail label column resizer and the Panic Button (sounds serious, doesn’t it?) … Who remembers how to add these? Open Chrome, go into settings then choose extensions.
Gmail label column resizer
User script that allows the labels column in Gmail to be resized
- Allows the labels column (left panel) in Gmail to be resized.
Hide all your tabs at once with one single button and restore them later.
- PanicButton makes it easier for you to hide all of your tabs at once just by clicking on a button. They are then saved as bookmarks in a separate folder. Afterwards, the PanicButton turns green and shows you how many tabs are currently hidden.
- Another click on the PanicButton restores all of the tabs you have hidden earlier.
- If you don’t want to restore your tabs just delete the “temporary Panic” folder in Chrome’s “Other bookmarks”-folder.
- You can also use PanicButton’s keyboard shortcut. Just press F4 to hide and restore all your tabs. (currently only works when you’re on a http:// or https:// page)
