Pinned tabs don’t show page title (<title>page title</title>), they’re contracted so only their favicon is shown. To pin a tab, right-click tab and select “Pin tab”. Tab creep is that situation in which you have so many tabs open that you find it confusing to find your most-used tabs. It’s common for power users to suffer from tab creep; it causes users to be unable find the most-used tabs like webmail, social media and work tabs.
New tabs, by default, spawn from left to right and users tend to open their webmail, social media and most-used tabs first so they stay on left side. That’s Chrome comes with the handy feature called “Pin tab“. It keeps most-used tabs, contracted to their favicon and tucked to left side. A few things to remember about pin tabs:
- Pinned tabs can’t be mixed in unpinned tabs. Dragging pinned tab among unpinned tabs is redundant, because pinned tabs go back to where they otherwise were.
- Opening links in new tabs from pinned tabs opens unpinned tabs (standard tabs).
- To unpin a tab, right-click pinned tab and select Unpin tab.
