Too Many Tabs Open? Here’s a Hack You Need: GoLinks

Do you have too many browser tabs open? 

If so, you’re not alone. In today’s fast-paced digital world, it’s easy to accumulate a large number of tabs as we work, research, and browse the internet. But having too many tabs open can cause several problems, including decreased performance and memory usage, as well as increased clutter and confusion.

Here’s a scenario that might sound familiar to you: 

You’re in a virtual meeting with coworkers, and it’s time to present a project you’ve been working on. 

You share your screen and suddenly realize (with embarrassment) that you have no clue which tab or browser window it’s under. 

You have what feels like 99 tabs open, and a few painful minutes go by before you find the correct tab. 

It’s at this moment that you realize you need to get your tab problem under control. 

Fortunately, there’s a simple solution: GoLinks.

GoLinks is a Chrome extension that allows you to organize your tabs by creating custom links (aka go links) that take you to a specific URL. 

For example, a long Google Docs link like this:

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1yVcZihiShg ❌

Can become a short, memorable link like this: 

go/presentation ✅

Here are a few reasons why go links should be your go-to tab organizer: 

  1. Go links only take seconds to create, so they won’t add time to your workflow. 
  2. Go links can reduce the clutter and visual noise of having multiple tabs open, allowing you to streamline workflows and focus on the task at hand.
  3. Go links can easily be shared (verbally or visually) with others, allowing for simple collaboration and communication.
  4. Go links live in one dashboard where you can centralize company knowledge.
  5. Go links can protect sensitive company data and systems by providing access to approved users only.
  6. Go links can be tracked, thus providing insights into which links are most used.

Step 4: Accessing your go links 

You can then access this go link at any time by typing it directly into your browser. Goodbye cluttered tabs, hello streamlined workflows! 

Easily share go links with your team. 

Typically, when you need to share a specific link with a coworker, you have to hunt it down in your tabs or bookmarks, and you have to then copy and paste it.

Quickly search and browse go links. 

GoLinks also allows you to search your go links, which can help you quickly find the one you’re looking for. You can search by keywords and tags, which is a real time-saver if you have a lot of go links and need to find one quickly. This is much easier than clicking on every tab you have open trying to find the right one.
