Chrome is Google’s official browser, and to serve its users, it’s constantly getting new features to make it easier to use. In turn, one of the last features of the browser is for the preview of the contents of tabs that are open in it, something already seen in some other browsers such as Edge.
This new function, for the time being, is only available in the test version of the browser, and yet it is not enabled by default, and it is necessary to change some parameters so that it can start working. Here’s how to test the open tab preview feature in Google Chrome.
Although the following process requires the installation of Chrome Canary, the Beta version of the browser does not change any configuration of your original Google Chrome. This way, you do not have to worry about losing extensions or other important data that you have in the browser.
How to enable the new feature
As mentioned above, the new feature is not enabled by default in Google Chrome and, unlike some settings traditionally made in its menus, it is enabled via parameters inside the browser, is a more complicated but still risk-free process. Here’s how to proceed:
- If you do not already have it, go to this link to download Google Chrome Cannary;
- After downloading, proceed with the normal installation of the application;
- With it open, go to this address: chrome: // flags;
- From the field at the top of the page, look for Tab Hover Cards and leave the two options that appear as “Enabled”. Click Relaunch now.
At this time, when having more than one open tab browser, when hovering over her name, you should have access to a preview of the site that is in it.
