Chrome 73 Reportedly Introducing Tab Grouping FeatureOpera for computers
*Google appears to be planning some major features for the upcoming version of Chrome. Code changes earlier this week had hinted at a Dark Mode being developed for macOS. Now, another new feature has been spotted that would group tabs together in sets.
Our usage of term “sets” might remind some Windows enthusiasts of an upcoming feature in the operating system that will introduce tabs in File Explorer and group together different applications in one window to improve user productivity. Google’s version sounds a tad similar to this concept. A recent code change suggests that users will be able to organize Chrome tabs into different groups, possibly to improve productivity by grouping tabs belonging to one task or a project in one set.*
Opera 12 Tab Stacking was a pioneering browser feature
It remains unclear how exactly will this grouping feature work since it can’t be just “click on a group of tabs to open them all in a new window” as that can already be done. The above description (via TD) also talks about using context menus for manipulation, so it will be interesting to see how it’s going to be designed in a way that improves productivity, removes clutter, and doesn’t require too many clicks.
The feature is in early development, but, if approved, it would be available for all versions of Chrome, including Windows, macOS, Linux, and ChromeOS.

One of the things that Internet users may do when it comes to privacy and security on the Internet is to restrict access to certain browser features by sites and services.
Browsers support a wide range of features that are often enabled by default so that sites and applications may use them right away. While that is certainly convenient and better for usability, it may have consequences on privacy and security.
A basic example is WebRTC which all modern web browsers support. Sites may exploit it to get the "real" IP address of the device the user is using even if proxies or VPNs are used.
RE: Lazy frame loading but how about #enable-lazy-image-loading ?Future releases
why only that other flag?
RE: #flags and New Tab Page on Opera?Opera for computers
Those are Chromium flags and may not even work in Opera.
Yeah - tempted to try though.
Could be building blocks for a new coming of Speed Dial / Start Page.
This decade it's not just a quick dial - it's dashboard, portal, storage, stack, notes, organizer, gateway. But portals aren't just link collections anymore - but do offer features & services - hub, centralizer, framework and storage for ones online experience.
