Enable/Disable Bottom Tab Switcher on Chrome For Android

In this article we will tech you how to Enable/Disable Bottom Tab Switcher on Chrome For Android. The Google Chrome web browser is based on the open source Chromium project. Google released Chrome in 2008 and releases several updates a year. It is available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux distros, Android and iOS operating systems. The Google Chrome browser takes a sandboxing-based approach to web security. Each open website runs as its own process, preventing malicious code on one page from affecting others (or the computer operating system in general). The browser also supports web standards such as HTML5 and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

Anyone reading this probably uses multiple tabs on a desktop, but managing tabs can be tricky on a mobile device. On an Android tablet, Chrome looks like a real browser with a tabbed top bar, but you don’t get any tabbed UI on a phone. There’s a button that takes you to the cascading user interface of different Chrome windows, but a one-touch tab didn’t exist in Chrome for phones – until now! This new toolbar gives you quick and easy access to any open or running tab. This bottom toolbar displays a list of all running tabs as little icons. A small close button (x) also appears on the current tab icon to close the tab. If we look around us, we will see that Google Chrome is currently the most popular web browser.

The feature-rich web browser is available for desktops and smartphones. Google recently implemented many features in Chrome for groups with desktop-like tabs, new extension bar, music control bar, etc. Now it looks like Google wants to change the way we switch between tabs in Chrome for Android. Google is testing a new feature that will let you use icons to navigate between open tabs. This makes it really easy to access all your minimized tabs while you continue to work in Chrome. Below we have mention the steps to enable and disable Bottom Tab Switcher on Chrome For Android

To use this new feature, you must install the Chrome Beta app for Android. Follow some of the simple steps given below to enable Bottom Tab Switcher in Chrome for Android.

  • First of all, download and install Chrome Beta on your Android smartphone.
  • Next, open your web browser and tap the ‘Agree and Continue’ button.
  • Now navigate to the URL: chrome://flags.
  • On the Chrome Experimental page, look for ‘Conditional Tab Striping’, ‘Tab Groups’ and ‘Tab Groups UI Improvements’. You need to enable those three flags.
  • To enable flags, simply select ‘Enabled’ from the dropdown menu.
  • Next, tap on the ‘Relaunch’ button.
  • Once done, open a new tab, then open a second tab. Now you need to drag one tab on top of the other tab, so that it merges into a group of tabs.
  • Once combined, you will be able to see the new navigation at the bottom of your browser.

  • Open the drop-down menu by tapping ‘Default’.
  • Select ‘Disabled’ to turn off tab groups and grid view
  • Relaunch Chrome by selecting the option at the bottom
  • You’ll now be back in the familiar world of tabs you can swipe through vertically. If you decide to return to tab groups in the future, simply repeat the steps and choose ‘Default’ or ‘Enabled’ at Step 5.
