To open a New Browser Window or New Tab in the Chrome browser, go to the triple-bar in the upper right corner of the browser and select either New Window or New Tab.
When opening a New Browser Window, the old browser window remains open; it’s underneath the new one. Several browser windows can be open at once, and you can switch back and forth between them easily.
A New Tab opens a new page inside the same browser window, keeping the task bar uncluttered at the bottom of the screen. Closing a window closes all tabs open inside that window.
If more than one tab is open, switching between websites is as easy as clicking on the various tabs.
Why would you want to have several tabs open in your browser?
If you were planning a vacation and you wanted to compare prices and features of various resorts, you could open a tab for each resort website and then quickly move back and forth between your choices.More Info >>
