Tab grouping in Edge insider canary is worse than Tab grouping in Google chrome stable

  • Edge insider Version 81.0.375.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)

    VS

  • Google Chrome Version 79.0.3945.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)

 

so in Google chrome, when I go to a website (Any website) and then right-click on a link (could be video, post, picture etc), Google chrome automatically puts my original tab and the new tab into one group and gives it a color.

Then if i open a new website in a third tab, it has no group by default but once i right-click on a link on that website and open it in a new tab, the same grouping happens.

these groups with different colors help us recognize which tabs belong to which website/group and make things easier to manage.

 

in Microsoft Edge, I have to right-click on each tab and create groups manually.

 

 

P.S if you are wondering how to activate Tab Grouping:

  1. you have to go to here: edge://flags/
  2. then find this from the search: Tab Groups
  3. and set it to enabled
  4. restart your browser

That's what I noticed.... Tab grouping should be done automatically.... That's convenient and makes sense.

Yup

Completely agree. Maybe Microsoft is waiting for the Chromium feature to be finished to mess with it, but I don't get why it's lacking compared to Chrome honestly.
