    =Data recovery=
    If for any reason you think all saved sessions are lost, do not save any more sessions. The important thing is to export your bookmarks from the bookmark manager. I export my bookmarks before any upgrade of my chrome version, incase the extension has an issue with a new chrome version.

    In older versions I noticed sometimes when the window opens, it is still "loading" from the bookmark manager, and it ends up showing "no saved sessions" when there really is some (non blocking issue). Closing chrome and reopening shows the sessions fine (thread finished in time). Its important to not save when its in this state, as it can overwrite your sessions with the empty state. I thought the problem was fixed, but perhaps not (its very hard to reproduce). I am investigating other storage options than bookmarks. If I could find out an easy way of blocking on reading bookmarks before a popup window appears perhaps I can stay with bookmarks. Or maybe the popup window should start in a loading mode, then make the load section appear once the non blocking bookmark reads are finished. Other storage problems have none of these problems.

    The important bookmark folders are [SessionSaverOptions], [SessionSaverSettings] and [SessionSaver], depending on your version. If you have multiple of any folders, deleting the empty ones without your session data might help (backup all bookmarks first though).

    =Browser action version useless=
    Due to time contraints it just focussed on the "save" aspect. Some people only needed the "save" part and prefer a "simpler" interface, so that was what that version tackled. I actually still use the toolstrip version because I need the "load" feature. It was a shame the toolstrip feature of chrome is deprecated, because it forces changing the interface rather than working on the other features I thought were more important.

    Note that there is also the "Bookmark all tabs..." menu feature of chrome, which is extremely useful. Unfortunately extensions can't add menu items like that, which makes it difficult to emulate other session savers for other browsers.

    =0.18=
    I could release the toolstrip version 0.18 that allows saving and loading sessions to/from bookmarks allowing you to edit existing sessions, you can do what you want with normal bookmarks, and it should be more reliable. That version was put on hold due to the toolstrip being deprecated problem. I didn't want to release it yet though, since I'm still not certain on using bookmarks to store the core data.

    "As a workaround, how can I go back to a Chromium build which included toolstrip functionality?"
    I keep the offline installers for versions where possible. Backing up your chrome installation, then uninstalling and installing an old version should work. If toolstrips really are gone now on windows I'm going to have to be careful updating.

    There were some offline installers at codefear:

    =Comments=
    Thanks for all the feedback. Its nice to hear other people really need the load feature too, and even more the important the data recovery issues.

    I guess these are the remaining areas for a future release:
    * Data recovery options
    * Load support
    * Improve browser action version

    Hi all,

    thanks for this extension. Is this still under development? You guys from SessionSaver surely won't let that big potential and fast growing market slip away, are you?

    I'm trying to use this under Mac OS X 10.6.3 with the latest chromium build. But I can't get it to work. Maybe I'm completely missing something, maybe the newest chromium isn't supported?

    Can someone explain to me, what's happening?

    Thanks and hope this extension isn't dead...

    I've kept just running chrome 4.0.249.4 so I can keep using the Toolstrip Version.
    There seems to be a large number of other session managers for chrome, so I've been testing them.
    Out of the competition I find Session Buddy the best, however I'm still not sure whether I can make a permanent switch to it. Session Manager has a nice compact browser action drop list, but the save button ends up down the bottom which is annoying when you have lots of saved sessions. Fresh Start seems like an OK interface, but it wasted a bit of space with help and big icons, and it was unusable since it didn't even support saving multiple windows!
    Development has been put on hold for now.

    I am using SRWare Iron v 4.0.280 and installed the plugin (0.17) but the options button is greyed out.

    Any idea what could be causing the problem?

    Hi! How do I use this ? I am sure it is very cool as I got the idea to download it from the firefox add-on "Session Manager" or "Session Saver" I think it is called. Wanted to see if there was one for Chrome... but I am not sure how to use it ....Any help would be great ! Thanks --Carl.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your time to making these plug-in.
    However, i think it should warn after installing "after restart it will work" i spend my time to find options and plugin but didnt then i figured out from screenshot here that it might work after restart of chrome.
