My phone (Samsung S7 running Android 8.0.0) recently updated to Chrome version 85, and with it came tab groups.
I am sure this is a welcome thing for many, but I rarely have more than 8 tabs open at any time. Thus the ability to group tabs makes little sense for me.
Unfortunately, I can’t seem to avoid it. When holding on a link, “Open in new tab” has become “Open in new tab in group”, and there is no option to open it just as a separate tab.
This makes my regular tab cleaning a lot more cumbersome, as now I suddenly have two or three groups where I want to remove one or two tabs each, rather than just four tabs I want to close.
Is there a way to remove tab grouping, or at least a way to hide it away so that I don’t have to bother with it during casual internet browsing? At the very least, I can’t find anything even remotely relevant in the settings, and a rudimentary internet search has only provided news of the feature, not any details on removing it.
