Standard sessions to be opened at startup

I'd love to have a standard session to be opened at startup. Be it a simple branch of tabs  or a folder, a single tab with a hibernated folder (with some sort of "startup bookmarks") or even a complex tree with several branches, folders (windows?) and hibernated tabs.

The next step would be to open different sessions on startup depending on time, date or other variables...

You can configure Chrome's Settings to reopen your last session. Pinned tabs will do the job as well, if you choose not to do this. (Though you will lose the order of your trees.)

Is there a particular reason you want this?

I the second step of this particular proposal is:

  • Difficult to implement correctly.
  • Only appeals to a very, very small portion of the userbase. (1 in 10000, say.)
  • Adds bloat.


This sort of thing would work better as a fork of Sidewise. Or, heck another extension. Now that I think about it, the way Sidewise opens up tabs (matching titles, URI)  leaves a perfect opportunity for the a separate extension that is unrelated to Sidewise. The next step is finding someone to develop a "Open particular set of pages on startup with so and so rules" extension.

(Please don't be offended by the downvote and keep the ideas coming; I just do not think this is the right focus for Sidewise.)
