How To Organize Browser Tabs

Rodrigo Ferreyra

The time of reinventing how to organize browser tabs has come. In this day and era, where information has become so abundant, browser tabs (especially when there are lots of them) have, in turn, grow into a problem. Today computers have no trouble handling countless tabs. However, traditional browsers fail by design in providing a proper solution to the chronic mess tabs have become.

How To Organize Browser Tabs effectively

Yet the user is not to blame: The culprits are no other than the browsers.

As time goes by, computer users rely more and more on web apps. Yet, back in the day, most programs were hosted on the user's computer. This is when web browsing was fairly more limited, consisting —for the most part— of straightforward tasks like reading the news from a single platform, chatting, or emailing. In such an era, browsers, like many other programs, went with the tab interface that is still used to this day.

While personal computers have gotten more powerful and the internet faster, tabbed browsers are a bottleneck of outdated ideas:

  • Tabs propose a single-page view, requiring the user to change between tabs while often wasting the screen's space
  • No built-in separation of tabs according to the divided purpose of the web page you're using (task-focused tab groups)
  • Poor support for multitasking
  • No proper support for multi-accounting

Organize Browser Tabs with Stack - A modern browser for productivity

Stack is not a patch for these problems, but rather a browser designed from scratch acknowledging how we use the web today.

In Stack, to organize browser tabs you use cards. Unlike tabs, cards capitalize the real estate of your screen. Cards fit horizontally one next to the other. In this way, they balance your apps' screen space so you can use them simultaneously without having to alternate between them.

Moreover, the card system does wonders for multitasking. While tabs separate pages, cards let you do all sorts of complex tasks that require multiple tools to be used together.

Making room for additional pages is extremely easy with cards: you can move, resize or fix them to your liking. You can open as many cards as you want while keeping them grouped collectively in stacks.

While cards organize browser tabs, a stack is a set of cards that assembles the web pages and apps you use together. In this way, you can have two separate stacks for checking your email apps and social media posting.

Additionally, stacks themselves can be organized into spaces.

Thanks to spaces, you are free to keep your life balanced and separate your work and home apps and accounts.

In this regard, Stack comes with full support for multi-accounting. No need for Incognito Mode or manually switching between accounts. With Stack, all your accounts are able to coexist without issues. This includes your Discord, Instagram, and Asana accounts.

Besides, multi-level web apps organization and multi-account support are just two of the things Stack has to offer. Additional Stack features include centralized-shortcut Switch, Ghost Cards, Focus Mode, Ad-Shield, and many more.
