Google Previews New Chrome Browser Features Coming This Fall Including Refreshed Tab View

"After opening one of the grouped tabs, you can easily switch between the tabs in the group using the new tab switcher at the bottom of your screen," Google explains.
Over on the desktop, Google is beefing up its tab preview views. While you can already see what a particular tab is by hovering the mouse cursor over it, the refreshed view will have the page name and URL appear underneath the tab when doing this. It is a cleaner layout, and is already working in Chrome OS. Down the line, Google will also add a thumbnail image to the equation.
Chrome is getting smarter, too.
"Chrome’s address bar helps you get to your results faster than ever. Now on both desktop and Android, answers will show up inside the address bar where you type your query—whether you’re looking for results about sporting events or instant answers about the local weather or translations of a foreign word," Google explains.
Some visual customization options are headed to Chrome as well. Users will soon be able to change the background color of the new tab page. This will be within the Color and theme menu. This will contain nearly two dozen presets.
All of these updates will arrive later this fall, with Google promising other features not yet previewed in tow, too.
