Google Chrome will now allow users to group their tabs

Google Chrome will now allow users to group their tabs
Tech giant launches new tool to organize tabs in its Chrome browser and consolidate them, announced Wednesday.
Users can right-click tabs to add them to groups, and then label those groups with a name, color, custom emoji, or a combination of all three, said Chrome engineer Edward Jung in a blog post. Initial Google research has shown how people tend to group tabs – by subject, by urgency (“ASAP”, “this week” or “later”) or by progress (“not started”, “in progress” or “done”).

“The tab groups are customizable so you can decide how to use them,” said Jung.

(This writer’s tip is to open a new browser window for each story he works on or when he reaches a certain threshold of tabs, which means that instead of having 36 tabs open, he has three windows with 12 tabs each). (The editor of this story currently has 18 tabs open in a single window).

Although tab organizers are not a new concept, services such as OneTab, Cluster and Toby offer Chrome extensions for this, for example – this is the first time Google has offered its own.

The feature, which Google has been testing for months, is currently only available on the beta version of Chrome. The company will add it to the new version of Chrome from next week, deploying it gradually to avoid having an impact on the browser’s “stability and performance”.

However, one thing that won’t change anything Google does is the joy of closing dozens of tabs when you’re done working on something.
