A Chrome extension to help you keep tabs on info you want to monitor. It's great for cycling through tabs on an external display, like a TV.

TabCarousel is simple: open tabs you want to monitor throughout the day, then click the toolbar icon. To stop, click the icon again.

By default, TabCarousel will flip through your tabs every 15 s, reloading them every 5 min. It's great on a unused display or TV. Put Chrome in full-screen mode (F11, or cmd-shift-f on the Mac) and let it go.

If you want to change how often TabCarousel flips through your tabs, right click on the toolbar icon and choose "Options".

New in 0.5.3:

* Bug fixes

New in 0.5.2:

* Added an option to start Carousel automatically, by request from a user
* Tabs that have previously failed to reload now reload correctly
* Carousel now only flips through tabs in the window in which it was started

Example Uses

On a computer that has an external display (like an HDTV), try opening:

* NewRelic - Open as many tabs as you want for your apps -- don't forget to turn on "kiosk mode"
* Twitter - Make a list of services you use, for example, and open it
* Status sites:
* GitHub
* Heroku
* Hoptoad
* Monitor your build service, such as CruiseControl
* Packages with tracking information
* Anything else that's on the web that you want to monitor

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
