Google Chrome Set To Introduce Upgrade To Improve Tab Management


Google Chrome has an upgrade that will make Users experience better browsing functionality and overall convenience.

The browser boasts more active users on both mobile and desktop platforms than Safari, Microsoft Edge, Firefox and more.

Chrome is granted frequent upgrades from Google that add new functionality and improve the stability of the software overall.


One of the biggest problems for Chrome users is dealing with a plethora of tabs at once.


The browser recently received a Google’s new Material Theme which does a better job at presenting myriad tabs.

However, managing an assault of sites at once is still a huge annoyance for Chrome users.

Google seems to have its hands on the Zeitgeist and is currently working on a remedy for multiple tabs management.


Peter Kasting, a Google engineer, recently confirmed a ‘scrollable tabstrip’ is in development for Chrome that would allow users to manoeuvre through a long line of tabs open at once.


Such a feature is already available on Mozilla Firefox.


Kasting made the announcement on Reddit in response to a user asking for an easier way to arrange tabs overall, first spotted by TechDows.


The Google engineer said: ‘Scrollable tabstrip is in the works.’


Kasting emphasised until the new feature arrives, one of the easiest ways to arrange groups of tabs on Chrome is to group them by window.



A release date for the newly-announced functionality was not disclosed.

He went on: ‘In the meantime, try using shift-clicking and ctrl-clicking to select multiple tabs at once, then drag out to separate windows to group tabs by window.’


Although a scrollable tabstrip would not provide Chrome fans with a new way to organise tabs, it will surely make navigating through a score of web pages more manageable.


Unfortunately, the Google engineer did not discuss a release date for the newly-announced functionality.


And it is also unknown if the feature will be constantly activated or if users will have the option to turn it off.
