Google’s latest update to the Chrome browser for Android brings better support for fullscreen video, limited support for devices with multi-screen features, and the ability to re-open browser tabs that had recently been closed.
The “Undo Tab Close” feature has been available in desktop browsers for years — just hit Ctrl+Shift+T and the last page you closed will re-appear, letting you re-open browser tabs you might have closed before their time.
Since it’s tough to use that kind of key combination in a mobile browser, Google has instead offered a “recently closed” section in the new tab page. Now when you close a page, a pop-up notification will show up for a moment, with an “Undo” button that lets you change your mind and re-open a page.
Other updates include support for subtitle and HTML5 controls on full-screen video, and if you’re using an Android phone or tablet which supports multi-window features. Chrome now lets you browse the web in one window while performing other tasks in another.
I can’t find anyway to remove this. I can’t be the only person that is being driven insane by this? I’m considering changing browser it is so bad!!!!
How can i deactivate this?? I find it kind of annoying to see that everytime i close a tab.
What a stupid and unecessary notification this is. Utterly pointless. How do I get rid of it? I wonder if Google have sorted the Aw Snap crash I keep getting on my Nexus…..
You could undo a close-tab by opening a new tab – which should bring up your bookmarks – and then click on the left panel (panels appear at the bottom) and at the bottom it has “recently closed tabs”.
