    Hi there you asked to let you know which one works better for me….well they both work well but the Install Page “Title Change Extension” just has the edge because you can change the Favicon too!

    lol on further use…the favicon reappears as you navigate through a site…the name change on the tab stays changed but the sites favicon reappears…is there anyway to not have to click “hide favicon” each page I visit?

    Wow, I have been looking for something like this. I am going to try this out!

  4. I agree that the Page Title is better because you can hide the favicon.

    My roommate is a programmer (I don’t think this is the right translation) and I’ve just asked him to think how to develop an extension with those features because in the Italian “scenario” there is anything like those ones. Those are very well-done, particularly Page Title!

    I apologize for my english.

  6. Page title change is better, because it lets you disable the favicon.

  7. This plugin does not work for Chrome v30.
