What is a Tab Stack?

Tab Stacks are groups of browser tabs. Using Tab Stacks is a great way to cut down clutter and keep yourself organised while you browse.


Creating a Tab Stack

The simplest way to create a new Tab Stack is with drag-and-drop. Simply click and drag a tab over another tab until it becomes darker and drop it. You can add or remove tabs to an existing Tab Stack in the same way.

To rename a Tab Stack, first make sure you’ve enable the feature by ticking the box for ‘Allow Tab Stack Renaming’ in Settings → Tabs → Tab FeaturesThen simply right-click on your Tab Stack to open the context menu and select ‘Rename Tab Stack’. Type the new name for your stack, hit Enter and you’re done.
