Like many property managers, you probably spend most of your workday using Google’s browser. It's no surprise as Google Chrome is the most popular web browser with over 3.2 billion users worldwide.

If you’re one of them, you’ll love these time-saving tips to help boost your web-browsing experience using Google Chrome.

Organize your browsing by saving tab groups

Hands up if you are an expert at task switching. As a property manager, you juggle multiple tasks at once. More often than not, when you take a look at your browser window, you have a sea of tabs open. You may start out by checking your inbox or managing your rental properties in your property management software. Before you know it, you have five, ten, or even thirty tabs open in Google Chrome.

Want to know how to manage tab overload? The answer is the Chrome tab group.

With tab groups, you can save related pages together in one tab so they can be retained and opened at a later time. Such a feature is beneficial when you open the same set of web pages every day, say Gmail, property listing sites, your social media accounts, and your web-based property management tool.

Creating a tab group is super easy. Just right-click any tab and select add tab to a new group or click the name of an existing tab group.
