Manage tabs in Google Chrome browser

Google has released a new update to the version of the Google Chrome browser for the Android operating system, which introduces a new interface for managing tabs. Instead of a vertical tab layout, you can now sort your tabs in a grid view whenever you open a link.

Manage tabs in Google Chrome

  • Open the Google Chrome browser on your Android phone.

  • In the address bar, type: chrome://flags/#enable-tab-grid-layout and press enter.

  • You will see the Tab Grid Layout option highlighted in yellow.

  • Click the arrow button next to the previous option.

  • In the dropdown menu that appears, select the Disable option.

  • Click the restart button at the bottom of the page to restart Google Chrome.

  • After restarting the browser, you should see the new layout of vertical tabs in the browser.

How to Manage Tabs in Chrome Browser for Android?

  • If you don't see the new tab layout, try reloading Google Chrome again.

  • In case you are used to managing your current tab in Google Chrome and don't want to switch, you can disable the feature using the steps described earlier.

  • In addition to the layout of the new tabs in the Google Chrome browser, the company has also moved the tab bar to the bottom.

  • The ribbon makes it easy to switch between tabs, and whenever you open a link, you'll see a site icon appear in the bottom ribbon.

  • The tab is highlighted and a button (X) appears that allows you to close that tab.

  • The tab bar at the bottom is a useful addition, a feature that has been required in the mobile version for a long time. It makes managing tabs easy via a smartphone.

Additional Features

  • In addition, last April, Google began rolling out a new feature for some users in the Chrome browser for Android to track prices to alert them about price drops.

  • This comes after Google discontinued the Android shopping app earlier to replace it with the web app.

  • Once the feature is activated, Chrome will monitor your open tabs for any price drops, and send you a notification if anything happens.

  • The feature can be useful for Android app functionality, but it's not compatible with price tracking extensions like Keepa that are available for the browser's desktop version.
