Sometimes, when many tabs open and a new tab opens, or an existing tab pulls the focus, I find it hard to return to where I was.

I was thinking about heat-coloring the tabs so I can instantly see which tabs I was working on (these will be colored red), while tabs I haven't used for a while will eventually turn blue (cold).

The coloring shouldn't be time-based; it should be usage-based, so the popularity of a tab (red color) is determined in comparison to the other tabs so even if I haven't used a specific tab in hours because I was away from the keyboard when I'd come back it will still be red because I haven't used any other tabs after I used it.

For information purposes color the active tab

This is about distincting the current tab from its surroundings, I'm talking about colored from hot to cold by orders of usage which is a bit more complicated.

great idea 👍

Making moves

Interesting idea. This would make it easier to find tabs I was just working in. I would probably want to be able to easily enable or disable it.
