    Default SessionSaver: windows AND tabs

    Would it be much trouble to get SessionSaver to preserve the windows+tabs structure of the session?

    I use many windows with many tabs, and like to keep them organized exactly as I set them up.

    It is pretty simple to write code that will open a window plus several tabs, the structure is basically as follows (per window):

    chrome.windows.create({url:...}, function(win) {
    chrome.tabs.create({url:..., windowId: win.id});
    chrome.tabs.create({url:..., windowId: win.id});
    chrome.tabs.create({url:..., windowId: win.id});
    });

    If you have any settings for your program, i recommend you store the data, in 'Other bookmarks'/Extensions/toolname
    rather than just on the toolbar, I hate when tools use a spot on the bookmarks bar just for cookies (I recommend this for everyone with a tool)

    oh and maybe default sessions to 'Other bookmarks'/Saved Sessions (with options to change it ofc XD)

    SessionSaver is now officially useless on Linux. As of Chrome 4.0.237.0, Browser Action popups are implemented on Linux and toolstrips have been removed on Linux. (Apparently because they were very buggy compared to on Windows)

    According to the Chrome release notes (if I've interpreted this correctly), the toolstrip is going away on all platforms eventually. I guess they've rethought the idea. Most extensions have been moving away from this with the addition of browser actions anyway. SessionSaver is my only extension that still manifests itself as a toolstrip icon, so to avoid having the whole toolstrip just for this one extension, I've disabled SessionSaver until the icon location is changed.

    I looked into the BrowserAction interface and made something people can start to use.
    It does look nicer up the top instead of down in a toolstrip.

    I'm calling it "Session Saver Browser-Action-Edition - Version: 0.1" for now. It has less features than the toolstrip version, but some people might like the simpler interface. See the main post for the download link.

    Feedback would be appreciated.

    Session Saver 0.17 lost ALL saved sessions after I synced bookmarks to google account.. Maybe they are still in a directory, but they do not appear in SessionSaver's chrome window

    Any chance that they can be recovered? I had a lot of time and effort invested in those sessions..

    Silly question, but aren't they in your Google Docs account ?

    You might be able to find them in the bookmarks.bak file in your Chrome User Data folder ...

    As a matter of interest why didn't you use the 'bookmark all tabs' on the tab right click context menu ...

    Thanks for the effort, but the browser action version is essentially useless to me. Because of UI shortcomings in the old version, I've been in the habit of using only the "load" feature. (I saved a session called 'Daily' and that's all I use)

    Having to use the bookmark manager to load my session would be so inefficient that I might as well just fill the new tab page with it.

    I'll stick with an outdated Linux chromium build to keep toolstrip functionality until you either release one with load and save in the browser action or (just to be a wiseguy?) you release one with load only.

    I also had a number of sessions for Load/Save and would like to recover them. Will this be possible? At this point, I would be happy just being able to recover a list of the links.

    As a workaround, how can I go back to a Chromium build which included toolstrip functionality? This is on Windows.
