Restoring Lost Tabs on Chrome for Android is About to Get a Lot Easier

Conducting research or self study usually involves opening up several tabs so that you can go back and forth between them and get a balanced perspective on whatever you’re trying to learn more about. This can make it incredibly frustrating if you accidentally close your web browser and lose all of the tabs that you had. Closing a single tab or up to two or three by accident is easily fixable by going into your browser history, but if multiple tabs are closed it can be harder to get them back.

This can be an immensely frustrating thing to go through, and Chrome for Android has not had any features so far that can help out with that. Chrome has an easy fix for such things on its desktop browser, but in spite of the fact that this is the case its Android app does not have the same level of versatility. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Google is trying to change that with a new update.

An experimental flag was recently spotted in the Chrome for Android source code, and if this flag is anything to go by there is a strong level of likelihood that people might end up being able to restore tabs with a single tap. Google is trying to aggregate all of these recently closed tabs in a window that is meant to be a lot easier to access, and if and when this feature gets rolled out doing some research on the app will become much less annoying with all things having been considered and taken into account.

Grouping tabs is one way to keep them organized, and Chrome might soon allow you to save tab groups as well. This can let users do a bit of research, group all of the relevant tabs together and then save them in a separate folder so that they can be accessed again even if you accidentally close them. Features like this are important for Chrome’s Android app.
