How to Use Google Chrome Extension “Close All Tabs”

Google Chrome is one of the leading browsers today because it is faster than other browsers, and has features that improves your browsing experience. These features are also known as extensions or plugins. You may purchase or download these for free. You can use these extensions to modify your browsing experience as you see fit.

There are many issues with browsers, like speed, safety and privacy. Some people prefer to keep their browsing history private and some want to keep their tabs out of sight. “Close All Tabs” is a Google Chrome extension that closes all existing tabs while opening a new tab. This way, you can continue browsing undisturbed, and your previous tabs are closed from view.
