It’s been over a year since Google began phasing in to indicate the arrival of a new display of open tabs within the Chrome mobile app. The new look with a “grid” layout has been seen in recent months by only a select few users, while others have so far used the original sorting with tabs arranged vertically behind each other. However, Google recently updated its mobile browser, and the new look has finally reached everyone’s phone. Many users can’t stand the new view and want the old one back. Follow the instructions below to find out how. It’s a toy.

Google Chrome and changing the display of open tabs
Returning to the older environment is done through one of the parameters “flags” , which are basically switches of hidden or experimental functions of Chrome. It is located at a common address, where you can possibly perform other pieces with this browser. In this case, we are interested in one particular switch.
How to do it?
- In the new Google Chrome tab, go to chrome: // flags.
- In the search box, type “grid” and find Tab Grid Layout.
- Select Disabled from its drop-down menu.
- At the bottom edge you will be prompted to restart the browser – click on Relaunch.
The feature is turned off the next time you start Google Chrome, but the grid view still persists. Just turn off the browser, turn it back on, and finally switch back to a view with vertical scrolling between open tabs. The procedure should be the same for both Android and iOS versions of this browser.
