When you have many tabs open at the same time and you want to know what the URL is inside a different tab, your only recourse is to click on it to focus the tab to see the URL.

This is much troublesome if you don't have much RAM because it will load that new tab and your previous webpage may unload, causing loss of work.

This extension will put the URL into the tab's title so that you can have a quick glimpse of the URL when you hover the mouse over the tab.

When you click on the tab, that URL will be hidden again to prevent clutter and so that it doesn't appear when you bookmark the webpage.

Why the big bright blue arrow?

The arrow must be obvious so that you can differentiate between the page title and the URL in one glance as you slide your mouse cursor across the row of tabs.

Where is the "http://"?

This is removed to prevent clutter as it is not important information.

Practical and ergonomic. After installing, this doesn't affect any already open tabs, until you switch to a tab and then switch away. If you had many tabs open before installing (I had 3000), then occasionally some tabs get the arrow and the URL twice. To fix it, refresh the page. If you use Ctrl+TAB to switch between tabs, hold Ctrl, press TAB while holding Ctrl, then mouse over the tab thumbnail. After 1-1.5 second it will show the title with its URL, too.

Does exactly what it says it does. And it does it well, as per the screenshot.
