If you’re one of those people who open browser tabs like they’re going out of fashion, and eventually end up with a sprawl of tabbed sites that gives you a headache trying to cope with it all – well, Google Chrome could soon help with that.

This is another potential case of AI to the rescue, in fact, with an inbound feature for Chrome as spotted by well-known leaker Leopeva64 on X (formerly Twitter).

This is the new ‘Organize Tabs’ ability which is in testing in Google’s browser, and now it looks like it’ll use artificial intelligence.

As Leopeva64 points out, when you click on the button to have your tabs organized, the animation to show the work is happening looks exactly like what’s displayed when using AI in a Google search.

In other words, this suggests that tab organization will be AI-powered, and you’ll be able to sit back and sip your favored beverage, while the artificial intelligence makes sense of your tabs and groups them up sensibly. Well, hopefully, anyway.


Analysis: Automatic organization – or guided manual

This is still the early stages for the Organize Tabs function, and the feature doesn’t work yet (as shown in the tweet above). Of course, that’s why we can’t be sure it will be AI-powered, but it’s certainly a big clue that the animation put in place is the same (practically) as with Google search, as noted.

The leaker further points out that it seems Google is also planning a dialog where if the AI tab organization fails somehow – or if you’re not happy with it, perhaps – there’s help provided on how to organize browser tabs yourself. This will manually guide you through the process with step-by-step pop-up tips.

All of this is useful stuff for those who find themselves stuck in browser tab hell, an all too easy trap to fall into, and an arduous one to navigate out of.
