Google has announced a new way to help you organize your so many tabs on Chrome browser. The new tab groups feature has been introduced mainly for the tab collectors who open many tabs at one time on Chrome. Google is addressing such users as tab collectors and giving them a way to group together similar tabs in one for a clutter-free look.
This feature is currently available in Chrome Beta, so to have this feature on board, you’d need to register yourself for the beta channel.
Once on Chrome Beta, you just have to simply right click on the tab you want to organize in a group and select “Add Tab to Group.” The menu will then prompt “New Group” or the existing ones with their names. You just have to choose any of them to assign the tab in a new group or an existing group.
If you select “New Group,” you would need to label them with a custom name and color. And, you can then group together all other tabs in this newly made group or existing ones. This organization encourages a cleaner and sophisticated look to your Chrome if you’re a hoarder of tabs. Also, grouping together will help users in taking a quick look at their favorite topic of interest under one roof without having to go anywhere else. Google notes that this feature could help you in several projects or when you are looking through multiple shopping and review sites.
Google also exemplifies that one can group tabs by how urgent they are like “ASAP,” “this week,” and “later.” You can re-arrange these tab groups as well.
There are already many Chrome extensions available from third-party developers that let you do the grouping of tabs but a feature built directly into the browser is a welcome change and handy as well.
Google has announced that it will release tab groups feature slowly in its upcoming version of Chrome, which begins rolling out next week. Tab groups will be available for Chrome on desktop across Chrome OS, Windows, Mac, and Linux.
