Google Chrome is about to help browser tab addicts keep things more organized with tab groups.
As Google points out, when it comes to web browsing, there are two types of people: tab minimalists and tab collectors. Collectors, as the name implies, use tabs far more than minimalists, bouncing back and forth between possibly dozens of tabs. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to keep up with them, especially once a browser starts truncating the titles to make room for more.
“Now, with a simple right click, you can group your tabs together and label them with a custom name and color,” writes Edward Jung in a blog post. “Once the tabs are grouped together, you can move and reorder them on the tab strip.
“We’ve been testing out tab groups for several months now (as have some of you), and we’re finding new ways to stay organized.”
According to Jung, some users are choosing to organize their tabs by topic, others by priority. However a person wants to organize them, the new feature should be a big help.
The company plans to start rolling the feature out in the next version of Chrome, but users can try it now by downloading the beta.
