My tab has become a problem on my MacBook on more than one occasion simply because you leave all these tabs open, especially using Google Chrome, sucking up a ton of computer memory.
A tab is a Chrome extension that lets you keep all of these tabs open without keeping all those tabs open.
When you use it, all your open tabs are converted to a list. Then, when you come back to them, you can restore the individual tab you need or all your tabs at once. Extension creators say that using it can save up to 95% of your computer's memory. Of course, it depends on how many tabs you leave open regularly now, but whether there should be some memory savings.
This list of tabs can also be converted to a web page if you want it so you can share it with friends This means that the dozen or so beer events I have opened now can be sent to friends just by creating a web page of links if i want. Or I could just send that research to myself and shut down all those tabs permanently.
While the divisible function is cool, the real bonus is in the memory savings. If you leave as many as I am open on a regular basis, it could potentially mean the difference between having a functional computer and looking at that spinning wheel at death on a regular basis.
