Google Chrome: If you're more easily able to remember and identify tabs by the contents of the browser window than by the tab name, Visual Tabs presents you tabs in a cover-flow style arrangement for easy browsing.
After installing the extension you can click on the Visual Tab icon in your toolbar to view the tabs in cover-flow format. You can navigate by using the scroll wheel on your mouse to page through the tabs or by clicking the individual tabs to move forwards and backwards through the list of open tabs.
Although we found the white background too bright and the black background just right, you can select from a variety of colours including blue, green and red — as seen in the lower left hand corner of the screenshot. Visual Tabs is free and works wherever Chrome does. Have a favourite Chrome extension? Let's hear about it in the comments.
