As noticed within the newest Chrome Canary construct, Google is now constructing an automated tab grouping function. There’s a flag, titled #tabs-groups-auto-create, is at the moment seen in Chrome Canary construct #87.0.4266.0 however doesn’t appear to work when enabled.
How precisely would this function assist customers? The flag description says that Chrome will robotically create tab teams for customers, if tab teams are enabled. This doesn’t actually verify what is going to occur while you allow the flag. The of us over at TechDows have, nonetheless, spotted a bug report from the Chromium staff and it higher reveals how the function works.
When enabled, this function will see Chrome ‘automatically create a new group when opening a tab with the same domain as its parenting tab.’ This means if you happen to’re utilizing Twitter and create a ‘Tab Group’ with the social media platform because the guardian, then all the different Twitter situations you open in a brand new tab shall be clubbed below this group. At least, that’s what I collect from the reason of the function.
I enabled the automated tab grouping function and checked it out however couldn’t see it in motion. We should look forward to Google to shed extra mild on the identical to know higher, so keep tuned for extra updates.
