Activate Tab Overview in Chrome to get Expose for the web
If you’re a heavy tab user, pay attention. With Chrome 9 or later, you can activate a really cool hidden feature called “Tab Overview” that works great with Mac multi-touch devices. The name Tab Overview doesn’t really describe much of anything, but the behavior of Tab Overview is basically like Mac OS X’s Expose but for your Chrome tabs.
How to enable Tab Overview in Chrome
This should be cross platform, but you’ll need Chrome 9 or later and a multi-touch device, then:
- type “about:flags” in the Chrome URL bar and hit return
- Under “Experiments” look for “Tab Overview” and click on ‘Enable’
- Restart Chrome for changes to take effect
Relaunch Chrome and open a few tabs, then use a three-finger swipe down on your multitouch trackpad or mouse to activate the Expose-like tab overview.
