It will allow the users to distinguish tabs by topic, task, and more and can even make them color-coded.
Google Chrome will also bring a lot of changes on the tablet platform, by providing a larger tab for a touchscreen interface. The feature will be first rolled on to Google Chromebooks and then on the tablets running Android. The user will also be able to see the thumbnail preview of the tab as soon as they hover the mouse pointer over the tab. It will allow the user to quickly decide on which tab to open and which should they close. Chrome will also have a feature for using pdf files more efficiently. Chrome users will be able to fill out PDF forms and save them with their inputs, directly from Chrome, and the next time when they open the file, they will start from where they left.
