The latest Google Chrome Canary update comes with a new feature. Users are now able to use an enhanced tab groups function which now supports headers.
Google Chrome Canary update finally brings the “tab groups” feature
The tab groups feature was observed in November 2018 when it made an appearance on Chromium Gerrit, a popular platform and collaboration instrument for Chrome developers. At that time eagle-eyed sources discovered a request for a new flag. Flags play an essential role in Chrome’s functionality since they are used to enable or disable several setting options. The new flag was requested for a tab group feature.
For a long time, the details remained quite sparse. It was known that users would have the ability to organize tabs into distinct groups, and each tab could be associated with a specific task. The idea was well-received by the developer community, and significant progress has been recorded since the feature was first introduced.
Users who wish to test the new feature have the option to enable it manually. Follow the tutorial found below if you are interested.
Notice: This feature is only available in Chrome Canary. It is not present in the regular version of Chrome. If you don’t have Chrome Canary, you can download it for free from the official webpage.
How to activate “tab groups” in Google Chrome Canary
- Open Chrome Canary.
- Type chrome://flags in the address bar and press enter.
- Look for the tab groups feature.
- Switch the flag to enable the feature.
This method is considerably faster:
- Open Chrome Canary.
- Type chrome://flags/#tab-groups.
After the feature is activated in Google Chrome Canary, you will be able to create groups of tabs by right-clicking on a tab to add it to a new group. Users will also have the option to remove tabs from an existing move or to move them to a different one. The most significant change comes in the form of the new header feature added to the tab groups. The header counter will start with Group 1, and each new group will boost the counter. The count will be reset after the browser is closed.
