For today’s snapshot we give you the option to name tab stacks, we’ve made improvements to our reader mode, added a fix for the long-standing issue with the mouse cursor displaying in full-screen videos and we fixed a bunch of regressions! We also did a major update of Chromium to 55.0.2883.64.
Named Tab Stacks
We continue to work on tab management and you can now assign a name to your tab stacks. It is still work in progress and hence the option is off by default but if you want to enable and try it, go to “Settings → Tabs → Tab Features → Tab stacking → Allow Tab Stack Renaming”.
To rename a tab stack, right click on it and choose “Rename tab stack”. The name will display for all tabs in the stack. You can still see their individual titles via hovering them or in the tab cycler. You can also remove the name by deleting it and the tabs will return to their default names
Let us know what you think so far and where you would like to see us go with this feature in the future.
