Google Chrome allows you to ‘pin’ a tab. When you pin a tab, it moves to the extreme left of your Chrome window. It also hides the page’s title and shows only the icon. The tab also stays there until you ‘unpin’ it. You can close the browser and open it again and your pinned tab will still be there.
Pin Tab, when enabled, will show only this favicon image, and not the title of the page, and that will reduce the width of the tab, into less than 1 Cm.
A favicon is the small icon that is displayed on your browser’s tab next to the website’s title. Here is Chrome Story’s favicon:
How to Pin a Chrome Tab
To “pin” a Chrome tab, right-click the tab and choose “Pin”
You will see the tab pinned.
Chrome tabs are useful in many ways. If you open a lot of tabs while browsing, you can pin them to save space on your toolbar.
You can also use this feature to save websites that you always leave open. For example, if you have the habit of keeping Gmail or your favorite todo list all the time, you can keep it “pinned”. These websites will open pinned every time you open Chrome.
