We’ve all done it: Amidst a flurry of stressed out productivity, we’ve accidentally closed out browser instead of minimizing it, losing the page we were working with. In most cases, this isn’t an unrecoverable error, but it sure is an annoying one. If you’re using Google’s Chrome browser, you can elect to open a new window and try to locate the page in your browsing history, or you can download our Trash Can , our Browser Extension of the Week, and let it do the heavy lifting for you.
If being able to recover your tabs isn’t enough incentive to download Trash Can, don’t fret, as the extension’s developer has a number of other ambitions features planned for it as well, including Incognito support, the ability to save tabs between sessions, and the option to limit the number of tabs saved at any one time. We’re sure you’ll agree that it’s time and sanity saving extensions like this that make the Chrome Web Store the worthwhile venue that it is.
Be sure to check back every Thursday for another edition of Browser Extension of the Week.
