This past week, we talked about how wonderful Wunderlist is.
In the comments section, I mentioned how I wish Wunderlist would auto-start on boot-up. Brian Alexander recommended that I:
Make it a pinned tab in Chrome. Have your tabs load from previous session when you close Chrome. Done!
What? A “pinned tab”? What the heck is that?
Like the tech savvy person that I am, I gave up on figuring out “pinned” tabs after about 40-seconds of no success.
Shame. On. Me.
Yesterday, Nathan Smith tweeted:
At this point, I had heard enough.
This time I didn’t give up, but only because I was able to figure it out in under 40-seconds.
I right-clicked the tab, and I pinned my first tab! Now, I was winning.
So, I jumped on the Google Chrome Web Store and picked-up Wunderlist (and few favorites of mine), fired-them up, and pinned them. There are a few other tabs I like to keep open all the time, so I pinned those, too!
Pinned tabs are Winning!
You can’t close them, they use less tab space, and they’re always ready.
I just combined the Gmail Google Labs favicon option, and I am really impressed with how slick this is.
So, if you’re a Chrome user, play around with the “Pin tab” option. It works with both regular web pages, along with all of the Chrome apps.
