Google Chrome is testing a new feature that will make it easier to work with tab groups. If you are one of those who group open tabs in the browser to work more comfortable while browsing the web, you will find the new dynamic proposed by Chrome interesting.
New applications for tab groups in Chrome
One of the features offered by Google’s browser is the ability to create tab groups. It’s as simple as choosing “Add a tab to group”, typing a name, and selecting a color. And then, you can add any tab by dragging and dropping.
A simple dynamic that allows you to group all tabs thematically. And it also saves you space in the browser bar, since you can collapse and expand the tabs that are included in the group. A dynamic that you can also apply to bookmark folders.
Yes, those folders that you usually create from the bookmarks you save in Google Chrome. As mentioned by a user on Reddit, Chrome is testing the possibility of creating groups with all the tabs saved in the bookmark folders. An option that can already be seen in the Google Chrome Canary version.
Now if we right-click on a bookmark folder, we will find the options to “Open all”, “Open all in a new tab” or “Open all in an incognito window”. But with the Canary update, “Open all in a new group” is added.
So you’ll be able to send tabs from a bookmark folder directly to a group. When you select that option, Chrome will automatically open the options to add a title to the group and assign the color. A simple system that will save you a few steps.
And on the other hand, another novelty that comes to Canary is that the groups also appear in the History quick menu. Now if we take a look at this section, we will find that it only allows recently closed tabs individually. But this dynamic could change in the future since we will also be able to open groups of tabs from the History.
