Chrome for Windows gets experimental tab hover cards, new extensions menu

Google Chrome on Windows

Google recently started testing a Microsoft Edge-like tab hover
cards feature for Chrome and the feature was added to Chrome
Canary in February. After testing the feature with Canary
users, Google has added two new flags to Chrome 75 to enable
new tab previewing experience.

If the flag ‘Tab Hover Cards’ and ‘Tab Hover Card Images’
are enabled in Chrome 75 for Windows, the browser will
generate a preview image of contents of the tab when a user
hovers over it.

It’s worth noting that the original Microsoft Edge already has
a tab preview feature that allows you to preview the contents
of a tab by hovering over it. While Google has laid the
foundation for the tab previews, the feature still appears to
be a work in progress since it is not enabled by default.

If you always have a ton of tabs open, this could be a useful
feature for you as it will improve tab management.

Extensions menu

Google also tested a new extensions menu for Chrome in the
Canary channel and it looks like the feature is almost ready
for everyone.

In Chome 75, you can also enable new extensions menu by turning
on the experimental flag. The new Chrome’s extensions
toolbar group all browser extensions. The extensions menu
can be accessed with its own icon in the toolbar.

The extensions toolbox will reveal all the available
extensions, so you no longer need to maintain several
extensions on the Chrome toolbar or menu.
