There are two types of people in the world: tab minimalists who have just a few tabs open at a time and tab collectors who have…significantly more. For minimalists and collectors alike, we’re bringing a new way to organize your tabs to Chrome: tab groups. This feature is available now in Chrome Beta.
It looks interesting, but since I keep strict tabs on my tabs, I rarely have more than 5-8 tabs open at once, so I don’t really need this feature. Any input from tab hoarders in the audience?
Firefox had it once, and then dropped it, I wonder if Google will follow suit. When that was available, I really loved the option to have a lot of stuff opened, just not clutter the tab bar. Then it went away and so did my browsing habits. I think the whole tabs metaphor isn’t working, and as result we have “pinned tabs” and all sort of tab grouping extensions and tab sorting… But I guess it’s the best we have going, until someone really figure this one out.
