Friends, today I am going to tell about an awesome tip/trick, which may be very useful for you.
In this trick, we will learn that, if multiple tabs are open on your browser (Google Chrome) and those tabs are private/personal (which you don’t want to show anyone).
When somebody comes in suddenly, what you will do? You will close tabs one by one, and if you want to reopen them, you will have to go through the browser history.
The proper solution for it is… you should not close all the tabs. You should collapse them all. So, whenever someone comes, you can restore the collapsed tabs. This is possible by Panic Button if you want to keep privacy in check, you can make open tabs private by using this simple Chrome browser extension called “PanicButton.”
Okay, let’s learn how to install and use it.
What is the PanicButton?
