Tag groups on Chrome
Tab groups in Chrome browsers can help you organize your tabs, which you can now use on Chrome OS. Now, with a simple right-click, you can group your tabs and label them with custom names and colors. Once the tabs are grouped, you can move and reorder on the tabs. This feature should be rolled out gradually over the next month.
