Summary

Adds a submenu of commands in the tab context menu, which appears when you right-click a tab (henceforth called the target tab).

⌨️ You can assign keyboard shortcuts to commands, giving you a keyboard-driven way to invoke them on the current tab. On the about:addons page, click the ⚙️ button → Manage Extension Shortcuts, and look for the Select Tabs section.

✂️ You can toggle individual menu commands on and off in Options/Preferences, allowing you to prune the submenu to your liking. (For example, some commands are best for keyboard use – good candidates for removal.)

Available commands are:

URL-based:

  • Duplicates — Select tabs sharing the same url as the target.
  • Same Site — Select all tabs sharing the same website domain and subdomain as the target. (Note for example, www.wikipedia.org and en.wikipedia.org have different subdomains and would not get selected together.)
  • Same Site Cluster — Select only a group of neighbouring same site tabs around the target.
  • Same Site and Descendants — Select same site tabs, and all their descendants regardless of website.
Tab tree:
  • Descendants — Select the target and its descendants i.e. its child tabs, and their children, and so on. A child tab is a tab that was opened from the target.
  • Parent — Select the tab that the target was opened from, if it exists.
  • Parent and Descendants — Select the target's parent and all its descendants (naturally including the target). If there is no parent, select the target and its descendants.
  • Siblings — Select the target and its siblings (tabs with a common parent). If the target has no parent, all parentless tabs end up selected.
  • Siblings and Descendants — Select the target, its siblings, and all their descendants. If the target has no parent, all tabs end up selected.
Directional:
  • To the Start — Select the target and all tabs to its left.
  • To the End — Select the target and all tabs to its right.
  • Add One Left — Add to the current selection a tab to its left.
  • Add One Right — Add to the current selection a tab to its right.
Temporal:
  • Accessed in the Past Hour — Select tabs opened or viewed in the past hour.
  • Accessed in the Past 24 Hours — Select tabs opened or viewed in the past 24 hours.
  • Accessed Today — Select tabs opened or viewed today (since midnight).
  • Accessed Yesterday — Select tabs opened or last viewed yesterday (excludes any viewed today).
Other:
  • Clear selection — Deselect all tabs that are not the current tab.
  • Invert selection — Deselect selected tabs and select all other tabs.

User reviews
This is great, thank you! It would also be great if directional included an incremental option, for instance, to select the "next" tab to the right, while pressing it again would select one more so you could get a fine selection of tabs that are side-by-side.
