Google puts Chrome tabs on options list

Web page thumbnails no longer default

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Google has updated its tab feature in Chrome, allowing users of the open source browser to remove web page thumbnails. Previously the option came in default mode.

The uncooked software, which is available via Google's preview channel, was given the 2.0.174.0 update yesterday.

Google Chrome program manager, Anthony Laforge, said Mountain View had added the "ability to remove thumbnails from the New Tab page (feature still in development)" to the browser update.

Other notable changes included the addition of "Undo Tab Close" and "New Tab" functions to the context menu on the tab bar.

Google also toggled Chrome to now support Ctrl+Shift text alignment, based on what side of the keyboard those keys are pressed.

In related news, the company released a new version of Chrome to its beta channel on Wednesday. Version 2.0.172.5 fixes some Chrome flaws and carries several updates. ®
