Google Chrome serves as an ideal browser, but it doesn't offer a proprietary option to tackle the problem of multiple tabs.
But now, that seems to change as a feature called 'Tab Groups' has been spotted in the development stage.
It is not clear when it might be rolled-out, but when it does, Chrome would certainly get better at handling multiple tabs.
If you're a workaholic spending most of your time on the internet, you are aware of the mess of having 15-20 tabs open.
It can be difficult to identify which tab is for which purpose and you might even have to open each tab manually to find what's needed.
Plus, they consume a lot of memory, slowing down the PC in use.
Most users tackle the problem of tab management by downloading third-party Chrome extensions.
They work pretty well, but sometimes users end up using malicious extensions, which can create more problems.
To tackle this, Google appears to have started working on its own 'Tab Groups' feature, which would help users "visually organize tabs".
Chrome Story found Tab Groups in a code change request and bug report related to the browser.
They even found a description that said the feature would let users "organize tabs into visually distinct groups, e.g. to separate tabs associated with different tasks."
Though this doesn't explain much, the idea seems related to some sort of folder for keeping similar tabs at one place.
As of now, there is no word on when the feature would be made available for Chrome users.
It appears in very early stages of development and might take a while to hit users across the globe.
Also, it is worth noting that Google has not detailed the feature or what it would look like after public release.
