Google Chrome just got a killer upgrade to make browsing better

Chrome is the most popular browser in the U.S. and U.K., though it has its flaws. Fortunately, Google is about to fix one of the biggest ones.

Spotted by Ghacks, the in-development “Scrollable tabstrip” feature will let you sift through your open tabs more easily. Of course if you’re a Firefox user you’ll find this quite amusing, since the Mozilla-designed browser has had a similar feature for years.

Currently in Chrome, the more tabs you open, the smaller each one becomes and the less of the page name you see. Therefore if you open more than twenty tabs or so, the title of each page is clipped so much that you can only see the icon. That can make it very difficult to tell which page is which, particularly if you’ve got the same website open multiple times.

Chrome already offers tab groups as a way to organize your tabs more intelligently, but that still suffers from the shrinking problem if you have a large number of tabs open.
