    How to Enable or Disable Tab Groups in Google Chrome


    Starting in Google Chrome 80, a new Tab Groups experimental flag has been added that allows users to organize tabs into visually distinct groups, e.g. to separate tabs associated with different tasks.

    Tab Groups has only been enabled to a small group of users by default, but you can enable or disable Tab Groups if wanted.

    Hello @Brink ,

    I had a look at this, and although it says . . .

    Experiments:

    WARNING: EXPERIMENTAL FEATURES AHEAD! By enabling these features, you could lose browser data or compromise your security or privacy. Enabled features apply to all users of this browser.

    I looked through the VERY VERY long list and found that not NOT ALL of them were set to Default, some were set to Enabled, and some set to Disabled.

    [1] Am I right in saying that those OTHER than Default are what would normally need to be included in the setup, and the rest are for the BETA Testing?

    [2] Depending on the answer of [1] above, what would be the impact be of setting them ALL to Default?

    Thanks.

    Hello @Paul Black,

    I think they would normally all be set to "Default" instead unless manually changed or set by Mozilla for some reason.

    The impact would be the whatever the default setting is for the flag.
