    Unhappy Losing tabs when using university intenet

    This isn't so much a bug as a feature request I guess. Like many users, I often have a lot of tabs open, and its fantastic to be able to close chrome and have them reopen next time I run chrome.

    At my university, whenever I open chrome with a ton of tabs, they all get replaced with a logon page for my university. That in itself is fine, but whether I log in, or don't log in and close chrome instead, those tabs are lost for good. Some of them I can click back, but most of my tabs were new tabs and so I can't click back.

    I'll be asking my uni's IT services if there's anything I can do about it, but they'll probably tell me to use internet explorer (sigh).

    It sure would be swell if chrome could detect a redirect of this sort upon reopening tabs, and ensure that if they are then closed and reopened again, they go to the unredirected page (ie, I've gone home from uni and reopened my tabs again).

    The only workaround I can think of other than single tabbed browsing is to use a different browser at uni

    Try and search for "session saver" on this site, it might help out...

    Here is another link: http://www.chromeextensions.org/tabs/session-saver/

    Saves all tab urls for all chrome windows.
    Saves multiple sessions with custom names.
    Loads all urls from saved session to current window in new tabs.
    Can view all urls to copy/paste from.
    Can save tabs just for current window.
    Can close saved tabs.
    Export all saved sessions to bookmarks.

    Failing that you could use 'Bookmark all tabs' on the Tab Right click context menu...

    While install an extension when you can use a feature of Chrome !!
