Karlston posted a news in Software NewsTab Groups now enabled by default in Edge Dev builds After years of development, Microsoft is finally preparing to bring Tab Groups to Edge users. The feature has been available behind flags on Edge for a while, but the company is finally enabling the feature by default in Edge Canary and Edge Dev, suggesting it should reach the stable builds in a few weeks. Tab Groups is likely the best browser UI innovation in the last few years, allowing you to group related sites together under a single labelled tab, which can then be collapsed to save space in your browser tab row. On Edge, the feature is supported for both vertical and horizontal tabs. Try it out now in the Dev and Canary builds by right-clicking on a tab and selecting Add to Group. via Techdows Tab Groups now enabled by default in Edge Dev builds
Karlston posted a news in Software NewsGoogle is added submenus for Tab Groups in the Chrome History menu Tab groups is one of Chrome’s greatest UI innovations, but the company has been moving rather slowly on rounding out the needed feature set for the feature. The latest feature the company is working on is saving the names and organization of your closed tabs, allowing you to easily find and re-open individual and whole tab groups you have closed earlier. This feature is available in Chrome Canary under the Show app menu history sub menus flag. Google is also working on another new feature, as revealed on the Chromium Gerrit. The feature lets you save your tab groups when you Bookmark all tabs: Add folders for Tab groups on Bookmark All Tabs. When the user has one or more Tab groups open and selects “Bookmark All Tabs”, instead of getting a folder with a flat list of tabs, they will now see nested folders for any Tab groups, with naming aligned with the Tab group title. The order of URLs and nested folders will match the tabstrip order. If multiple Tab groups share the same title, their tabs will get combined into a single folder at the index of the first group. All these features are of course sensible and pretty basic, and I do wonder why Google did not debut with all these features at launch.

Karlston posted a topic in Software NewsGoogle working to add the ability for Chrome to automatically create tab groups Google debuted tab groups with Chrome 85, bringing the ability to group similar tabs, rename, and color code them for enhanced tab management. The firm is also set to add the option to collapse groups, which is currently available in Chrome Canary. Now, a new Chromium commit has been spotted that suggests that the search giant is working to add the ability to automatically create groups. The experimental flag is already present in Chrome Canary under the ‘Tab Groups Auto Create’ name. However, the feature seems to still be under development as enabling the flag does not activate any features. Another entry for the feature details the possible function of the feature. The verbiage suggests that Chrome will be able to automatically create a tab group when users open “a tab with the same domain as its parent tab”. Other references in the Chromium entry point towards UI elements to enable this feature, a scrollable tab strip, and more. It is not clear as to what other capabilities the feature will bring when it does make it to all users. While the option to create groups for webpages of the same domain is a nifty addition, it will be interesting to see how the feature evolves, and if it intelligently groups pages with similar content, something that could rival the likes of Edge’s Collections.

Microsoft Edge gets Chromium's Tab Groups feature The Canary version of the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge web browser supports the tab groups feature in its latest version. Google introduced support for tab groups in Google Chrome as a way for users to better manage tabs. Chrome users can create new tab groups and use drag & drop to add or remove sites from groups. Support for custom names and colors is available to better distinguish tab groups from one another. Google added support for collapsing tab groups in 2020 to hide all open tabs of a group from Chrome's tab bar. The most recent Microsoft Edge Canary version supports tabs group now as well. The feature is not enabled by default and users interested in enabling it need to enable several experimental flags at the time to do so. The functionality itself is identical to that of Google Chrome and other Chromium-based browsers that have it already. Here is how that is done: Load edge://flags/#edge-tab-groups in the browser's address bar and set the flag to Enabled; this is the main Tab Groups flag that unlocks the core functionality. If you want tab group collapsing, load edge://flags/#edge-tab-groups-collapse in the address bar and set it to Enabled. If you want Edge to freeze collapsed tabs, load edge://flags/#edge-tab-groups-collapse-freezing and set the flag to Enabled. If you want the auto-creation of tab groups, load edge://flags/#edge-tab-groups-auto-create and set the flag to Enabled. Restart Microsoft Edge when you are done. Right-click on any open tab in Microsoft Edge and select Add Tab To A New Group to create a new tab group. Once you have created at least one group, you may use drag and drop to add or remove tabs. The right-click option changes to Add Tab To Group afterwards and includes options to add the tab to an existing group and to create a new group. A left-click on the tab group title collapses the list of open tabs that it contains, a second click expands the list again. Right-click on the title of a tab group to open the configuration overlay. You may use it to change the name of the tab group and its color. Options to create a new tab in the group, ungroup, close the group, and to move the group to a new window are provided as well. One of the main advantages of using tab groups in most Chromium-based browsers is that it improves tab management, and deals with tab overload in browsers such as Google Chrome. Chrome stops showing site names or icons eventually as you open new tabs in the browser, and in the end, new tabs don't even get an icon anymore in the toolbar so that it becomes impossible to open them without using some sort of third-party extension or closing existing tabs. Microsoft's implementation does not expand collapsed tab groups when you restart the browser; in Chrome, tab groups do get expanded automatically when you start it. The feature works well with Microsoft Edge's vertical tabs feature. You can download the Canary version of Microsoft Edge from Microsoft's website. Closing Words It will take some time before the new feature becomes available in stable versions of Microsoft Edge. Even then, it may be disabled by default. Vivaldi's tab stacks feature offers better options at the time, and Mozilla's Containers feature advanced features that improve privacy among other things.
