Montly Tool Talk - OneTab

When you find yourself with too many tabs, use the Google Extension, OneTab, to convert all of your tabs into a list. When you need to access the tabs again, you can either restore them individually or all at once. When using the OneTab list, you will save up to 95% of memory because you will have reduced the number of tabs open in Google Chrome. You can also share lists by selecting the 'share as a web page' button.
