Enable Tab Thumbnails to get a visual preview of the Tab’s content.

With a visual preview of tabs on the Tab Bar, it’s easier to find the tab you’re looking for, as you can rely on recognizing the page content in addition to reading tab titles.

To enable Tab Thumbnails:

  1. Go to Settings > Tabs > Tab Options.
  2. Enable Show Tab Thumbnails.

In case you have too many tabs open or only sometimes want to see the thumbnails, create a Keyboard Shortcut or a Mouse Gesture to quickly toggle the thumbnails on and off. Alternatively, you can rely on Popup Thumbnails that appear when you hover over a tab.
