Google's upgrading Chrome Tab Groups with the ability to save them for later

Google's upgrading Chrome Tab Groups with the ability to save them for later

Chrome's Tab Groups feature is an excellent way to stay organized if, like me, you tend to let your tabs multiply faster than rabbits on a diet of Spanish fly. While Tab Groups can be renamed, collapsed, expanded, and even marked with a color for easy visibility, none of those changes stay with you into a new browser session. Until now, that is: a new flag option in the latest version of Chrome Canary lets users save tab groups.

Google Tasks updated to make list management a whole lot easier

Google Tasks updated to make list management a whole lot easier

Google Tasks has improved a great deal in the last couple of years, so much so, in fact, that I eventually ditched TickTick for it earlier this year. It still has a long way to go to be the perfect task management app, however. This latest update makes it easier to switch between lists, at least.

Chrome is about to be more forgiving with accidentally closing your tabs

Chrome is about to be more forgiving with accidentally closing your tabs

We've all made that annoying mistake of accidentally closing our Chrome browser tabs and windows. It's especially a hassle to wait for Chrome to reload them — it takes even longer depending on your network and how heavy the webpages are. Accidental closers won't have to grieve much longer, as Google is working on a nifty "magic trick" to remove the time spent waiting for Chrome to reload your tabs.

Google web search is getting a handy UI revamp

Barely a day goes by without Google running some new UI test or another in one of its core products, and today's example is a nifty new sidebar that's appearing in Google Search on desktop. The first example of this was pointed out to us as far back as September, but only now is it starting to roll out more widely.

Firefox 82 for Android adds recently-closed tabs list and periodically purges cookies

Mozilla rolled out the new Firefox for Android to everyone two months ago, and while it was missing many features compared to the older version at first, the app is slowly improving. Firefox 82 has just reached Release Candidate status (meaning it's close to release), and the update includes an easier way to get your closed tabs back.

Tab search feature looks set to arrive with Chrome OS 86

If you're the type of person who keeps way too many tabs open across multiple browser windows — looking at you, Ryne Hager — a tab search feature would no doubt come in handy. Thankfully, that's exactly what Google has been working on. A functional version of the feature can be found in the latest Chrome OS 86 dev channel build, which suggests it'll be present in the next stable update.

Twitter rolls out tabbed home UI for faster access to up to five of your favorite lists (Update: Wide rollout)

Twitter rolls out tabbed home UI for faster access to up to five of your favorite lists (Update: Wide rollout)

Your Twitter timeline is likely a cacophony of voices and topics. The more you scroll the more you have to exercise brain gymnastics to understand the context and meaning of each tweet. Custom lists help you narrow down that overwhelming timeline into a more palatable, less crowded list of tweets which are closer in scope. Twitter is now simplifying access to these custom lists: By pinning them, you'll transform the app's homescreen into a swipeable tabbed interface with your lists right next to your main timeline.

Chrome might add drag-and-drop support for tabs to (and from) other browsers

Now that most browsers share the same Chromium base (yay monopolies!), there's potential for some synergy between them. One step in that direction could be sharing tabs between different browsers, according to a flag that recently appeared in Chrome Canary.

Unread badges could be coming to Google Chrome tabs and bookmarks

Unread badges could be coming to Google Chrome tabs and bookmarks

Since Chrome's big 10th birthday redesign, it's looking cleaner and less cluttered than ever, but that may be changing soon. The Chrome team is continuing work on the 'Badging API' that would allow websites to add unread notification badges to open tabs or bookmarks. In theory, this could be really useful, but I hope it doesn't make for a UI that's way too busy.
