Google’s next blockbuster Chrome update will make browsing a whole lot easier
Tab groups – as the name suggests – lets Google Chrome users group tabs together with a simple right click.
And to help with your browser spring clean you can also give each tab group a label as well as colour coding these similar tabs.
Throughout testing the Mountain View firm said they spotted Chrome users utilising tab groups in innovative ways, adapting it to suit their needs at a given time.
In a blog post Edward Jung, the UX Engineer for Chrome, said: “We’ve been testing out tab groups for several months now (as have some of you), and we’re finding new ways to stay organised.
“Through our own usage and early user research, we’ve found that some people like to group their Chrome tabs by topic. For instance, it helps if you’re working on several projects, or looking through multiple shopping and review sites.
“Others have been grouping their tabs by how urgent they are– ‘ASAP’, ‘this week’ and ‘later’. Similarly, tab groups can help keep track of your progress on certain tasks: ‘haven’t started’, ‘in progress’, ‘need to follow up’ and ‘completed’.”
