It takes all of your tabs (choose between all/all-except-current/current/all-to-right/all-to-left) and turns them into links in a special OneTab tab where you can further manage your tabs by dividing them into groups, removing duplicates and securing them so that they can't be removed unless unsecured.

It's easy to forget that clicking on the OneTab button in the extensions bar doesn't show you options – it saves your current session by closing all your tabs in the given browser window. That might be slightly annoying if you were trying to access the OneTab dashboard or view OneTab options instead of trying to save your current session in OneTab, but this is only a minor inconvenience given how easy it is to restore your session.

The OneTab dashboard only appears the first time you open your browser after quitting, although you can also make it appear through the extension button in the extensions bar. This is less invasive behavior than the Chrome extensions that appear every time you open a new browser tab. See More
This is not so much a con as much as it is a heads up for those who use OneTab as a form of transient digital bookmarking (like me!). When you click on a tab/link in any given OneTab session, that will cause it to disappear from the list of tabs in that section. It would be nice if there was an interim period or separate place where the link is still visible/accessible. That or it would be nice to have a version history of past closed tabs/links and sessions. See More
OneTab provides just the right amount of meta-info about the tabs you've saved. It groups them by session, and tells you how many tabs are in each session, as well as the date the session was created. Every saved tab includes the bookmarked favicon and page title. See More
When a site has multiple credentials (like I have for some brokers and banks), then the most recently used is automatically populated (if auto-fill is opted). This feature is unique (to my knowledge) and spectacular (especially for sites that log you off frequently and re-logging in is required). See More
