Have you ever accidentally revealed a bit too much about what you were browsing during a screensharing session? Or someone's coming over to your desk to discuss something and want to quickly mask your tabs? Then this extension is for you! It allows you to pull down a shade on any of your tab(s) in the current window.

I created this extension because I often have collaborate with people from other companies and I do not want to accidentally reveal the contents of my tabs while switching tabs or windows. That's my story for why I would use this extension myself. But whatever your reason is, I am sure you wished you had a way to mask your tabs rather than close or hide them.
