I legitimately thought that Safari's new Tab Groups feature was old news. It turns out that it's not and that built-in, neither FF nor Chrome have this feature
@brandon Maybe? Or their UI/Discoverability was so poor that no one knew how to use it.
Honestly, I don't see this being used either. It's easier to discover, though, so who knows...
@binyamin It looks like collections do indeed sync. Wow, somehow Microsoft beat Google and Apple to the punch on this (with Edge being based on Chromium)
@fatboy But can you re-open these tab stacks and do they sync across to the mobile versions of the browser?
@SnowIsCold2002 No, none of this really touches on the way that tab groups will work on Safari.
From what I understand:
Individual tab groups can be synchronized and revisited without having to close and reopen a browser, and each tab group's tabs will be synchronized regardless of the session it was a part of. And all of this is built into the browser without having to rely on setting up an additional system via files in the filesystem
@kai You can also on Chrome on Desktop, but I don't believe that you can sync that across devices. Heck, you can't even save those groups (at least on Desktop)
@brandon Chrome should have the feature. I use brave browser, based on Chrome and have been using tab groups for a while now
@brandon If only Safari would implement containers like Firefox and I would actually consider using it.
@WhoNeedszZz When you block all third-party cookies, is containers really necessary? Or is it moreso about being able to use a website without having to block third-party cookies?
