Here is a simple but useful time-saving tip for Google Chrome users. Named “Pin Tab”, this feature lets you reduce the width of each tab, by showing only the favoicon of the page, and not the page name. I will explain this in detail.
Before we start, let me tell you what a favicon is, it is a small ( really small ) icon that will be shown next to the website’s name or webpage’s title, on each browser tab. ( provided, the website has its own favicon. ). For example, if you look at the tab of chromestory.com now, the default favicon is show, which is a small image of a traditional paper sheet.
Pin Tab, when enabled, will show only this favoicon image, and not the title of the page, and that will reduce the width of the tab, in to less than 1 Cm.
To enable this feature, all you need to do is, right click on the tab and select “Pin Tab” from the bottom. Since you can enable or disable this feature forÂ individual tabs, you can actually pin some regularly used tabs like your email, and save some space.
Cool Uh ?
