If you're running Google Chrome Canary, the latest development version of the Chrome browser, you may have noticed that Google has changed the tab context menu significantly.
If you right-click a tab in the Chrome browser, a number will be displayed of options that are mostly tab-related. The menu includes options to create a new tab, to attach a tab, to close a tab, to save bookmarks for all tabs, or to undo the last closed tab.
In the future, some of these options may no longer be available in the context menu. When you right-click a tab in Chrome Canary, only the following options appear: Reload, Duplicate, Pinning, Mute Site, Close, Close Tabs Right.
 The options to create a new tab, duplicate, close other tabs, reopen closed tabs, and add a bookmark for all tabs have been removed from the menu.
Some of them were moved to the tab bar context menu instead. When you right-click the tab bar, three of the missing options appear: New Tab, Reopen Closed Tab, Bookmark All Tabs.
The duplicate option appears to have been completely removed.
Why is Google planning the change? A Chromium commit provides the following explanation:
Updating tab and frame context menus to conform to the latest UX specifications.
This removes four entries from the context menu of the tab. changes the text in some
others to the effect that "tab (s)" is no longer explicitly said; adds an entry to the context menu
; and changes the bookmark-related menu entry strings from "page" to "tab"
Most file changes here are because Enums / APIs are renamed to match the string changes
] According to the commit, context menus are updated to suit the user experience specifications. Development is very data-driven; It is likely that Google also reviewed the usage numbers before items were moved or completely removed.
Some of the options that have been moved can still be triggered with shortcuts, such as: Ctrl-T to open a new tab. However, the removal affects Chrome users who have used some of the remote context menu options in the browser.
One of Chrome's biggest strengths until then was consistency. Google has not really made many changes that affected the workflow of Chrome users. Google has recently made some changes that affect the user experience of Chrome. Logging in to Google sites and Chrome or hiding important information in the address bar (which Google has retrieved and restored in Chrome 76) are just two examples. Both were edited after the start.
The planned switch to a new manifest for Chrome extensions could affect existing extensions, such as: Content blocker also significant.
The changes to Chrome's tab context menu are still in progress, and it's possible that Google will restore some of the context menu options before the changes land in Stable. However, it's another change that affects the experience of Chrome users.
Now You : Which tab options do you use regularly? What do you think about the distance?
