Tabs Return to Chrome for Android

...

Chrome for Android users, rejoice: The latest mobile update returns tabs to Google's browser app.

With the 2014 release of Android Lollipop, Google introduced the option to "merge tabs and apps"—a polarizing feature. The change did not affect how the tabs behaved, just how they were presented. But, haters gonna hate, and many people disabled the function.

So with Chrome 51 for Android, which includes "two barges full" of performance and stability fixes, tabs are making a comeback.

Interested developers can view a "partial" list (endlessly scrollable) of other changes in this build, including the new Credential Management API and improvements to page rendering. The former, according to VentureBeat, allows devs to use Chrome's credential managers more extensively, helping to improve the user's login experience. The Intersection Observer API, meanwhile, allows sites to ditch custom JavaScript for improved page loading and scroll performance.

All that and more is available now to download for free from Google Play.

"If you find a new issue, please let us know by filing a bug," Alex Mineer, technical program manager at Google, wrote in a blog post.
