When the number of tabs reaches 100, the tab counter turns into a smiley face like so :D
I wish to know how many tabs are open, without doing the manual count. Is there a way?

From this XDA post- you need a rooted device ( you can't access
/data/data/ without root )
Download a root explorer capable app such as ES file explorer
Navigate to chromes profile directory, mine was at /data/data/com.android.chrome
Open the app_tabs folder
You should now see a single folder labeled "0"
Select it and open its properties, under file count deduct 1 and that will be how many tabs you have open currently, deduct 1 because 1 file in there is only an overall tab state file
Verified on my device ( Moto X Play, 6.0.1, Chrome
52.0. 2743.91) when the tabs open are 4 =
Files (5) minus one
