Tutorial

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
