Google Introduces New Tab Page to Chrome [Video]

Google has introduced a new tab page to its Chrome web browser that makes it easier to manage your apps and your most-visited sites. The feature comes with version 15 of Google Chrome, which was released earlier today.

As the video demonstrates, you can now navigate between different sections of the page using the tabs at the bottom, or the arrows on each side of the browser. To rearrange applications, you can simply drag and drop them; and to remove them, you can drag them to a trash can which appears in the bottom right corner.

Shannon Guymon, product manager at Google, said in the company’s blog post:

“We hope this will help you quickly scan the store and find interesting things to try out. In addition, apps and extensions are easier to install-just hover over an image on the grid and click ‘Add to Chrome.”

“Getting additional information about an app or an extension is just a click away. When you click on an app, extension or theme, you’ll see a panel featuring screenshots, videos and other relevant information neatly organized into separate tabs.”

The latest update to Chrome also includes a number of bug fixes to make the release much more stable.

What do you think of Google Chrome’s new tab page?
