seems like its only available in phone. I checked my Nexus phone it was there and thought it should be available in Nexus 7.
Sadly I have learned that with Google just because a function/feature exists on one platform doesn't guarantee that it exists on a different platform..
If anyone knows of a website/blog/forum thread where someone is tracking all of the various inconsistencies across Google Products/Apps, I would love to know about it. I have tried searching but haven't found the right search terms to uncover such a site...
I think that this is one of the major differences between Google and Apple. I am sure that one of the major reasons for this is the core Google approach to building stuff: build/release/build
That type of approach is counter to design consistency...
it seems that the only way to do it is to start tapping on the tab furthest to the left. when you tap on other tabs, especially the one furthest to the right, new tabs are added more often than tabs are closed
I just got the 2013 Nexus 7. When Chrome launches it opens 50 or more blank tabs. How can I keep this from happening, and close multiple tabs quickly?
Tried all of the above suggestions ... Thx.
Welcome to Android Central! Did this happen from the start, or did you have an issue with accidentally opening a bunch of blank tabs while trying to close the previous tab? If you opened all of those tabs, Chrome remembers that, and so each time you open Chrome, it will open all of those tabs again.
Go to Settings/Apps/All, select Chrome, then Clear Cache, then Force Stop. Now open Chrome again. If the problem recurs, I wonder if there's some sort of malware on the device, in which case you should install a good antivirus app like Lookout and run a scan.
This did not work. This is a brand new tablet. I ran AVG anti virus, which found nothing. After I cleared the Chrome cache , and touched forced stop. I went back to Chrome and ther are over 100 tabs open. Would installing the toolbar help?
