It would be really complicated to manage all the tabs if you commonly use to open multiple tabs at a single time. But if you’re a Chrome user, here is something good for you. The new updated Google Chrome has come with a new feature of the search tab button to manage this lengthy job. It is a small drop-down icon located at the title bar and you can activate it by using the Ctrl+Shift+A keyboard shortcut.
This simple search button can help you find the tab by just writing the tab’s name in the dialogue field. You can also have a look at all the opened tabs with just a click. This fine addition to the Chrome browser can make things difficult for a group of users not interested in working on multiple tabs at the same time. Read this post if you want to enable or disable the search tabs button from the Google Chrome title bar.
