One of the reasons why Google Chrome is so popular and demanding in the market is the productivity level it provides. Now, In a recent blog post, Marget Schmidt, Senior Product Management and User Experience, Chrome, revealed, the coming update of Google Chrome is more focused on to improve its productivity especially the tabs.

Now, here in this article, I’m going to list out all those new productivities features Chrome is getting in its coming update.


First and the foremost, let’s talk about Tabs in Chrome. Tabs are one of the most crucial parts of a browser as it not just increase your productivity but also give you the ability to multitask. Now, In the coming update Chrome team has further enhanced the productivity of these tabs by giving it a new grid layout. This new grid layout of tabs in Chrome looks something like as I have shown you in the photo below.

Tab Grouping in Chrome and Grid Layout for Tabs

Also, not just giving tabs a new grid layout, in the coming update you can also group tabs in a single tab. This is something I like more about what Chrome team has done with tabs, as you can see now, you can group tabs for a specific niche in one tab and so on. To group tabs in one tab all you have to do is simply drag and drop a tab over another tab. If you look closely, the image I pasted above also showing dragging one tab over other.

Okay, that is all about the new tab layout and tab grouping that is part of Chrome for iOS and Android. Now, let’s talk about another feature that is associated again with tabs but is for Chrome for the web.
