Chrome 73 is now rumored to add a feature that can organize tabs into certain sets to the browser. This may be most reminiscent of the similar function that Microsoft is reportedly set to bring to Windows File Explorer in the future. In addition, it is now alleged that Google will add a dark mode to Chrome 73 for Macs.

The next version of Chrome (73) may come with a novel new feature to arrange tabs. It is currently known as 'Tab Grouping' to the Chromium development community, and apparently adds the ability to create tab sets with patently distinct categories or sets. Its description suggests that these sets can be allocated based on tasks or pursuits, for example 'productivity' or 'media'. This new feature is apparently different from another pre-existing one that enables the transfer of multiple tabs to a new window.

A similar feature is also reportedly destined for the Windows File Explorer. However, for this to pan out, this part of the UI will also need tabs first. However, this is also a possible feature for the Microsoft OS of the future. Some reports also suggest that File Explorer may also gain the ability to open new per-application windows soon.

In terms of further update features, it is also now alleged that 73 will add a dark mode to the browser. However, this may only apply to the browser on Macs. The tab-grouping feature, on the other hand, may be available to Chrome for all platforms.
