Browser Extensions

In the era of cloud software, work is done in the browser. These browser extensions will help you quickly organize and manage your work as you move through your day.

Tab Manager extension

Add the Tab Manager extension to organize your tabs into workspaces. The tab manager makes it easy to save a tab as a resource, or move a tab to a different workspace.

Tasks extension

Add the Tasks extension to add or manage tasks from any tab, or even turn a tab into a task. By logging tasks in context, it's easy to attach the docs and links you'll need to get the task done later. When there's a task that's associated with your current tab, you'll notice a number badge appear on the Tasks extension button that displays the number of tasks for that tab.

Tab Suspender extension

Add the Tab Suspender extension to suspend your browser tabs and instantly free up memory. You'll get a handy suspend button in your browser bar that allows you to suspend all tabs, suspend the current tab, or adjust your automated tab suspension settings.

Benefits of the Tab Manager extension

Organize tabs into workspaces

The Tab Manager extension allows you to separate your tabs by project to help you feel more focused and less stressed. Simply create a workspace for each project, then move any related tabs into each workspace. You can think of workspaces as saved browser windows with names.

Access your work at workona.com

When you add the Tab Manager extension, you'll notice a pinned workona.com tab appear to the very left of your other tabs in the browser window. This is where you will manage your workspaces. If the Workona tab is ever missing from a browser window, simply visit workona.com to open it.

See just the tabs you need

The tabs within workspaces are constantly autosaved, so you can close a workspace anytime and easily pick up where you left off later. As you switch between workspaces, only your current workspace's tabs will be visible. Your other tabs will be conveniently hidden for you until you need them.

Never worry about losing work

Workona also automatically saves hourly backup snapshots of your tabs to the cloud, so even in the case of a browser crash or other emergency, you'll always be able to restore your work to get back on track.

Sync across devices

Because workspaces are saved in the cloud, you can easily sync tabs between computers. No matter how many devices you use or where they are, your work will always be ready to go.

Suspend tabs to speed up your browser

Browsers are memory hogs, so we added tab suspension to keep your computer running smoothly. Tabs load blazing fast with no effort on your end.

Search across all of your tabs

You can use Workona's search built for work from anywhere in the browser to search your tabs. Move even faster by adding the search bar to your new tab page.


Tasks extension

The Workona Tasks extension allows you to access your tasks from any tab in the browser.

It's designed to make it incredibly easy to log a task related to the tab you're currently on. If there is already a task associated with the tab you're currently on, you'll see a badge appear on the Tasks extension button.

  1. Add the Workona Tasks extension to your browser:

  2. If you use Chrome, pin the Tasks extension so you can access it easily and see the task count badge. This step isn't necessary on other browsers.

  3. Click the Task extension button to view your tasks. From there, you can:

    • Click My Tasks in the header to view your tasks in My Tasks.
    • Click Workspace in the header to view the tasks in a workspace.
Add a task for your current tab
Workona will automatically attach your current tab when you add a task from within the Tasks extension. To disable this, uncheck the box next to 'Auto-attach current tab'.
Shortcuts
