Google Chrome is considered one of the best web browsers thanks to the huge amount of options, functions and information it offers to its users. However, there are many more even than users know since some of its functions are hidden or in the testing phase in the Flags section. An example of these functions is the ability to show the preview in Chrome tabs.

Every Web page has certain information that will be displayed in Web browsers, such as the favicon icon or the title of the page. This information will be the one that is shown for example in the tabs of the Google Chrome Web browser and that helps the user to quickly identify the page that is open in each of the tabs of your browser.
However, other browsers such as Microsoft Edge have quite a useful feature as is the preview of the tabs. This means that when the user hovers the mouse cursor over the tabs that are open in the browser, a small preview of the web page opened in that tab will be displayed. This is something neither Chrome nor Firefox can do by default. However in Google Chrome you can activate the preview of tabs in Chrome through the Flags section although to be honest, this function is not as extensive as Edge.
That said, below we show you the specific steps that you should carry out to activate the preview of the open tabs in the Chrome browser:
How to enable the preview of the content of the open tabs in Google Chrome:
– Open the Google Chrome Web browser to go to the Flags section by entering the following path, in the URL field:
– Once here, search for the following term: Tab Hover Cards
– When this option is displayed among the search results, you must click on the drop-down menu on the right to select the option: Enable.
– Once the option is configured you will have to click on the blue button: Relaunch Now
– This will restart the Google Chrome browser. From this moment you will be able to open several pages in different tabs to row followed by placing the icon on any of the tabs and checking how a small window is now displayed showing more extended information about the page currently open in the corresponding tab.
