Google Chrome lately started rolling out the much-awaited tab group features. It allows users to better organize open tabs by clubbing them together below one roof. You can design labels for tab group to facilitate the identification of, say, work and leisure, websites in the browser. This is a slow task of its own, and Google is now looking forward to giving a hand.
Being spotted in the latest Chrome Canary build, Google is now making an automatic tab grouping feature. There’s a flag, titled #tabs-groups-auto-create, is currently apparent in Chrome Canary create #87.0.4266.0 but does not appear to work when enabled.
How specifically would this feature help users? The flag description says that Chrome will automatically generate tab groups for users if tab groups are allowed. This doesn’t confirm what will happen when you enable the flag. The peoples over at TechDows have but spotted a bug report from the Chromium team, and it better reveals how the feature works.
When allowed, this feature will see Chrome ‘automatically create a new group when opening a tab with a similar domain as its parenting tab.’ This means if you’re using Twitter and build a ‘Tab Group’ with the social media platform as the parent when all of the different Twitter instances you open in a new tab will be clubbed below this group. At least, that’s what I find from the explanation of the feature.
I let the automatic tab grouping feature and checked it out but could not see it in action. Us will wait for Google to shed more light on the same to know more excellent, so stay attuned for more updates.
