Microsoft is testing a new feature that will automatically
group your tabs in Chromium Edge so you don’t have to. The
feature is currently rolling out to Microsoft Edge Canary and
it’s hidden behind an experimental flag.
Like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge also allows you to group
tabs, but this is possible only when you activate an
Tab Groups could save you a whole lot of time by allowing you
to group tabs and keep your browser neatly organized. With Tab
Groups, you can select related tabs and create a cluster to
keep your browser window neatly organized.
Currently, Edge and Chrome require you to create the groups
manually. To address this problem, Microsoft is now enabling
support for automatic grouping process.
As per the flags menu, Edge will automatically and
intelligently create tab groups for you and organize the tabs
when you open links from the same website.
For example, if you visit Wikipedia and open its pages in new
tabs, Edge will intelligently include all Wikipedia tabs in the
same tab group.
Microsoft has also enabled support for Tab Groups in
Edge’s upcoming vertical tabs layout, but it’s experimental
at the moment and it may not ship in the stable channel anytime
To try tab group, make sure that you’re using Microsoft Edge
Canary and all updates are installed. Once you’ve updated the
browser, head to the flags menu and search for ‘Tab Groups’,
and then enable all related flags.
Restart the browser and Microsoft Edge can now create as many
groups as you want using its new automated process.
In addition to tab groups, Microsoft is working on new features
will automatically put your background tabs to sleep and
increase the tabs retention time to improve multitasking.
