Anyone who loves using Google Chrome to browse the web should definitely head to the settings menu and hit the update button. That’s because months after it was first revealed, Chrome fans can now access a new feature that groups tabs together to make them all easier to find.
It’s a really useful upgrade especially for anyone who has endless tabs open and can never find what they are looking for.
Group Tabs is a very simple concept. All you have to do is right-click on a tab that’s open and select “Add tab to new group” from the drop-down menu. From here, you can change the colour of the group even give it a name, which should help to keep things in order. Once that’s done, you can then simply click and drag other tabs into the group.
You make as many groups as you like although Google has limited the colour options to eight which is probably just about enough for most people’s needs.
To check if your browser is up to date simple click Chrome in the Menu bar then About Chrome. Your browser will then check for updates before asking you to relaunch the software.
Along with adding Group Tabs Google has begun rolling out one of its most vital Chrome updates in years. The US technology firm has started updating browsers across the world with a new feature that instantly blocks annoying adverts that require too much memory.
This should have three vital benefits for users with their browser able to run more smoothly. Blocking these ads will also eat up less of your precious mobile data and battery life on phones and laptops could also be vastly improved and that’s very good news.
Google says that it is trying to improve the ad experience by discouraging advertisers from creating messages that use large, poorly compressed images and video.
This update has begun arriving on browsers this week but Google’s releases can take time to push out to everyone so be patient.
