If there has been one thing holding back a substantial number of Firefox users from at least experimenting with the Chrome browser…
… it was the lack of sidebar tree-style tabs for Chrome…
Introducing! SideWise Tree Style Tabs
This Chrome extension makes it quick and easy to create a similar effect in Chrome!
Now you can view all of your open tabs in the left or right hand sidebar… and tuck child tabs under their parent tab for easy management.
Power users will find the ability to hibernate tabs, wake tabs, and re-label tabs very helpful.
Rather than being within the browser confines as Tree Style Tabs for Firefox is (Love that add-on) this extension accomplishes what has previously been impossible by utilizing a docked left-hand sidebar window.
It may take a little getting used to but the similar is close enough.
I found that moving one tab under another… and then trying to move it back out from being under that tab is sometimes fiddly. Meaning it’s kinda fussy and does’t always exactly move around as expected. I’m sure I’ll get used to it’s nuances soon though.
Overall, for being in BETA development (please donate to the developer), its a reasonably mature appearing extension and a blessing for those of us that have been pacing the floor since Chromes launch nearly 2 years ago waiting on this to arrive.

PS: I’d like to see a way added to hide the top-tabs, so the behavior is more like the Firefox option, but I speculate that that is likely not possible from a coding standpoint.
