That is also welcome, because it will bring a new tablet on the market in 2023. on his blog Google discusses a variety of improvements for Chrome on tablets.

First of all, it becomes easier to quickly switch between tabs, because you swipe left and right on the address bar, as you can see in the gif below. This also works when Chrome is open in split-screen. Furthermore, you are less likely to accidentally close a tab. When tabs shrink when you have many open at once, Chrome automatically removes the crosses to prevent accidental closing. There will also be a button with which you can undo closing a tab.
