Google Chrome soon to get Firefox like scroll option to deal with tabs overload

22 November 2018 0

Google Chrome continues to roll out new features and this time it’s something which we have previously seen on Firefox. For users that tend to open a lot of tabs as much as that they overflow the UI, Firefox offers a scrolling icon. Previously when you open gazillions of tabs, the tabs would reduce to little slivers which become practically very small to even switch between.

Firefox had a better implementation in place which lets the users scroll through the list of tabs using mouse wheel instead of what Chrome had where a static UI bar displayed all the growing list of tabs.

Developer at Google Chrome’s UI team confirmed the development of this feature on Reddit that its what the company is working upon lately.

“Scrollable tabstrip is in the works. In the meantime, try shift-clicking and ctrl-clicking to select multiple tabs at once, then drag out to separate Windows to group tabs by Window.”

This would be a huge relief for those users that keep various tabs open simultaneously and found it very tough to switch between them once the list grows huge. What do you think about this? Have you previously gone through the same challenge? Let us know in the comment section below.
