    Default [New Ext] Session Save - Bookmark current session

    Extension : Session Save

    Developer : JW

    Latest Version : 0.9

    Download Latest Version : See attached

    Description : Grabs all open tabs and makes a new folder under Other Bookmarks -> Your Saved Sessions with the time and date to store your open tabs. Now includes options for dynamic naming, current window only saving, and close after saving.

    Features :
    Although pretty similar to twinsen's Session Saver, my extension is simpler to use and relies on the native bookmark UI of Chrome to manage, rename, open, and delete your sessions. This has the advantage using the native bookmarking UI, a simple interface, and most importantly being able to access your synced saved sessions through Google Docs.

    Browser Compatibility : 4.0.206.1 tested

    Aditional Note: Feature requests are welcome, but I don't have a lot of free time to add anything but the simplest requests.
    Also, there is a bug where if you click the title of the stub when expanded. As far as I know, this is an issue with the mole API.

    having the option to select a name instead of simply just time and date would be nice although user can change the name;

    removing "Save Session" from the toolstrip would also be great

    I considered both, but decided not to. Specifying the name isn't something I'd personally do very often, so I'd have to configure the extension with an option to auto-name or the prompt for name, and prompting for a name would require more extensive UI, because the prompt javascript command isn't yet supported in Chrome. If anybody has a code snippet that I could more or less paste in to prompt for a string value, I'd be glad to integrate it, although I don't have the time to write it myself because university is back in session.

    As for removing the string, I decided against it because it'd make the click target a little 20x20 chicklet that's not very easy to click on a large screen. Only if you had a very low resolution screen and tons of extensions, it'd be worth the trade off .

    Here's the source if anybody would like to implement these though: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=XK8SU5BO
    Neither would take very long to do.

    I find both save sessions useful, however, this one lacks a UI and it saves from All open windows, would like if it only saved The current windows tabs!

    Maybe it's because I'm on a 24" monitor right now, but that still seems like a pain to click if you have just a bunch of icons lined up. Fitt's Law would suggest that my increased width makes the extension more user-friendly (http://ei.cs.vt.edu/~cs5724/g1/). Honestly even how it is now isn't the easiest thing to click.

    broman.m, you might just want to use the other sessionsaver (or grab the source and make windowList only iterate tabs from the current window). His is overall more extensible and allows for these options to be toggled, but I decided to release mine because his was overly complicated for those who want to just throw everything into a folder and forget about it, unreliable (my sessions were lost several times), and not accessible from the web through google docs (an absolute must for me). His extension has more potential than mine because of the UI framework, but mine seems to actually work much better, for me at least.

    A little UI to toggle all these suggestions (which are all very good) would be great, but I simply don't have the time as of late to learn how to make a reliable UI that stores local settings. It's too bad there's no framework in place yet for extension settings in the native chrome UI. When the mole capability is finalized in Chrome, this will likely be much easier to do.

    @Chrome, done.

    You can use Waha's library for that.

    If you grab "Chrome Gestures" latest version, you can find it there. It simply stores info in a cookie and then retrieve from it.

    I did use it in my Lorem Ipsum Generator ext and it works great Really simple, won't be a time consumer.

    Apparently, local Storage is already implemented. You can check this in the Bubble Translate extension. It is a much easier way of saving data.

    @jw12345

    Sometimes simple is best ;-)

    All I wanted was something that would save my open session and this does it fine ...

    The added advantage is that now we've got 'syncing' I can get at them from anywhere ...

    The only comment I had was about the description by the icon (personal thing I guess) but as you won't be updating this (it does what you want) I can always have a mess with it myself ...

    Thanks for a simple, yet very effective, extension ;-)
