works perfectly, it just needs some better options such as hide tabs after a certain amount of tabs are opened and an increment by minutes instead of hours to hide the tabs

Works flawlessly and with no bug(s). Congratulations for what is meant to be an 'experimental' add-on. I, am keeping it, as I find it very useful ! ;-)
