Google Chrome to help you keep track of your Incognito browser tabs

Google is going to make it easier for users to keep track of the number of Incognito tabs you have open.

Because Incognito tabs are not recorded in your history, when you accidentally close an Incognito tab or even a series of tabs, there is no way to restore those tabs, meaning users need to be more careful when pressing the X button.

Now Chromium developers have decided to enable by default a flag which will make the browser show the number of open Incognito tabs in the address bar (see the image above), meaning users will be aware if they are closing more than one tab.

It is not clear when this feature will roll out to all users, and it does remain questionable if users will need the numerous Incognito tabs they have opened when their InPrivate session has ended, but it is good to know that Google has your back when you are doing birthday and Christmas gift shopping for your spouse and have found that perfect deal.
