Google is in the process of developing a new feature that will allow Chromium-based web browser users such as: chrome and Edge – to select and navigate between open tabs more effectively.
Traditionally, when many web pages are open at the same time, each tab becomes smaller so that they can all be viewed on the screen, to the point where only favorites are visible. This can make it difficult to find the tab you’re looking for – especially on small, low-resolution displays.

- Right-click the Edge Canary desktop shortcut
- Open Properties
- After “ms edge.exe” add the command “-enable-features = ScrollableTabStrip”.
Enable the scrolling tabs in Chrome Canary as follows:
- Enter “chrome: // flags / # scrollable-tabstrip” in the Chrome Canary URL bar
- In the drop-down list next to Scrollable TabStrip, select Enabled
- Restart Google Chrome
