The browser consumes significant memory when using Google Chrome with multiple open tabs.
Each open tab is treated as a separate process, consuming memory from your computer. Furthermore, if a tab dynamically updates information in the background, it requires even more memory. The more tabs you have open simultaneously in Google Chrome, the slower your computer becomes due to increased memory usage.
This is where the browser extension “OneTab” comes to the rescue. OneTab is a free browser extension for Google Chrome that helps you better manage and organize tabs. It’s designed to reduce tab clutter and improve browser efficiency.
With OneTab, you can consolidate multiple tabs into a single list within your browser. This saves system resources and makes it easier to find and reopen specific tabs later. Instead of having numerous tabs open, consuming memory, OneTab gathers them into a single tab containing links to all your previously opened tabs.
Save up to 95% of memory with Google Chrome using OneTab
To get started, follow these steps to install and pin the OneTab browser extension in Google Chrome:
Install OneTab in Google Chrome

- Install the OneTab browser extension from the Chrome Web Store.
- Once installed, you will see a puzzle icon in the Chrome menu bar.
- Click on the puzzle icon to open the extensions menu.
- Locate the OneTab extension and click on the pin icon next to it.

Group tabs with OneTab
To group and close all your open tabs into OneTab, follow these steps:
- Look for the OneTab icon in the Chrome menu bar, represented by a blue diamond-shaped symbol.
- Click on the OneTab icon.
- This action will instantly consolidate all your open tabs into a single tab within the OneTab interface.
- The original tabs will be closed, saving system resources and decluttering your browser window.
- To access your previously grouped tabs, click on the links within the OneTab interface to reopen them individually or restore all tabs simultaneously.
Using the OneTab extension, you can conveniently manage your open tabs, reducing memory usage and improving browser efficiency with a single click on the OneTab icon in the Chrome menu bar icon.
Other features of OneTab include
Tab Consolidation: OneTab consolidates all your open tabs into a single tab with clickable hyperlinks, freeing up memory and reducing tab clutter.
Tab Management: Easily manage your tabs by grouping them into different categories or creating custom tabs.
Save and Restore: OneTab allows you to save your tabs for later use. Depending on your needs, you can restore them individually or all at once.
Export and Import: You can export your tabs as a web page or share them with others. OneTab also supports importing tabs from previous sessions or other devices.
Privacy and Security: OneTab prioritizes user privacy and does not collect or sell personal data.
You can drag and rearrange tabs within your OneTab list. Holding down the Ctrl or Cmd key while restoring tabs will keep them in your OneTab list, allowing you to start a set of frequently used tabs quickly.
Another significant advantage is that you won’t lose your tab list if you accidentally close the OneTab window, browser crashes, or restart your computer.
