I want to easily jump to gmail as one of many (many, many) open tabs in Chrome.
If I could just type "gmail" into Spotlight and it would take me to that tab in Chrome, that would work great for me. Or if there was a way to get gmail in the top-level Cmd+Tab list, that'd work too. Anyone know a way to do this?
On Windows, I made gmail its own "app", because Chrome lets you do that in Windows. That means that Alt+Tab can bring you directly to gmail, ignoring other Chrome windows. Unfortunately, Chrome for Mac doesn't allow making web pages into apps, so that route doesn't work. (I used https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/app-launcher-for-gmail/mlbjackfgfafcnpfaanflcjoknkhofnh for a time, and it worked ok [but didn't have my Chrome extensions, like Boomerang], but lately it's been busted.)
I use Vimium and its Vomnibar is like spotlight, but you have to first focus chrome and then be on a page on which you haven't disabled Vimium (e.g. I disable Vimium for google docs and similar rich apps), so it's not ideal either.
