How to Snooze Your Tabs in Chrome for Later Use

Do you often have too many tabs open in Google Chrome? Are you looking for an easy way to manage them? There are numerous extensions available to help you manage your tabs and even suspend them, but Page Snooze is the first I’m come across that actually snoozes them for you.

I’m a huge fan of the Too Many Tabs extension, but it doesn’t remind you about the tabs that you’ve suspended. With Too Many Tabs and similar extensions, I often forget about the tabs I’ve hidden. This is where Page Snooze excels above the rest: it will hide your tabs for up to two weeks and then pop them back into your browser once time is up.

If you’re like me, you probably leave websites open in a tab because you want to check them out at a later time. With Page Snooze, you can snooze them until that later time – no need to have 10+ tabs open with the pages that you want to go back to later.

So if you’re read to get started, here’s how it works.

1. Add the Page Snooze extension to Google Chrome. You should see its icon in your browser toolbar.

2. When you’re ready to snooze one of your tabs, there are two ways to snooze a page.

  • You can click on the Page Snooze browser icon and the page will be snoozed for one week; there are no other time options from the browser icon.

Click on the Page Snooze browser icon.

  • You can right-click on the page, go to the Page Snooze menu, and choose a snooze time. The right-click context menu is great if you want to snooze your tab for something other than one week – a few seconds, a few days, or a couple weeks.

Snooze your tab from the right-click context menu.

3. Your tab will immediately disappear into the snoozed link queue.

Manage your snoozed tabs from the snoozed links page.

4. If you change your mind about a tab, you can always go to the snoozed link queue by right clicking on the Page Snooze browser icon and clicking on “Options.” From there you can either go to the page (just by clicking on it) or delete it from the queue (click on the x).

There you have it. No more hiding tabs and forgetting about them; Page Snooze will remind you about them at the time that you choose.
