It does support multiple tabs, which feature is now available in all the modern browsers. The tabs can be easily switched between using the ‘tab’ or by directly clicking on the respective tab. The newer versions of the browser also supports ‘pinning’. A tab when pinned uses less space on the title bar and opens itself automatically when the browser is restarted. This pinned tab can be recovered by simply unpinning it using the respective option.
Chrome uses webkit engine for rendering web pages, the same has been used by some other browsers too, including safari. Omnibox feature of chrome was a well-known innovation in its design, which was later cloned by several other browsers. Omnibox merged the address bar and search bar in a single unit.
Chrome allows to synchronize all the content, including bookmarks, apps, passwords, etc. This works in a pretty straightforward manner. Firstly, you will need to sign in to chrome using your Google account; this needs to be done on first priority, otherwise none of your history or other data will be synchronized. Once done, all your data will be synchronised automatically, such that when you log in to chrome using some other device, all of your data will be available on the new device.
