Google is addressing this for Chromium with the Window Naming feature. The option available on the browser frame and in the More Tools menu, allows users to give custom names to windows. Chrome 88 missed this feature, but Chrome 90, as well as Edge 90, are receiving this.
What you need to know:
- Chrome and Edge for version 90 are getting a new Window management feature
- The feature makes it easy to identify the right window to switch to when you’ve many windows open
- You can organize Windows with different labels for Reading, Personal, and Work.
- When you mouse over the taskbar icon or in the dock on Mac, you can able to see the window label and switch to the right window easily.
- As the named Windows persistent across sessions, they’ll be restored when you restart Chrome next time, ensure, you’ve set the Chrome startup option to continue where you left off, otherwise, that won’t work.
