Close Tabs with Specifics URLS in Chrome

Pressing one key to quit all,,, etc. Chrome tabs would mean cleaning my mind. I can activate a Chrome Tab, but not ... close. Is this possible or I am crazy?

Yes, it's possible. All you need is a simple script in an "Execute an AppleScript" action:

tell application "Google Chrome"
	tell front window
		close (every tab whose URL contains "facebook")
		close (every tab whose URL contains "twitter")
		close (every tab whose URL contains "linkedin")
	end tell
end tell

Oh god, wow. Next step would be to close every Google Chrome Windows ... right now, only the front windows. Is their a way?

Yep. @gglick got you 95% of the way there.
This simple mod to his AppleScript will do the trick.

Hello @gglick and @JMichaelTX ,
I use your scripts a lot. thanks very much. Is it conceivable to modify the script so that instead of closing all tabs containing the name deepl (translation software), you close all except one, ideally the most recent ?
thank you !

This. Is. Wow. Wonderful.

It may be conceivable, but not easy. To start with how would you determine which is the "most recent"?


If it's not simple let's drop the idea.
Most recent tab: good point.
thanks very much
