Nifty and odd Chrome feature. Wish it were more obvious.

Cool. Other essential Chrome features, all accessed by right-clicking a tab:
- "Pin Tab": Do this with all the sites that you keep open at all times. They'll take less space and will re-open automatically when you restart Chrome.
- "Close tabs to the right": Despite how obscure this feature sounds, I use it constantly.
- "Duplicate": Creates another tab on the same web page, with the same history. This is super-useful when you browse to a page, and then realize you want to keep that page open, but also want to go back to the previous page. Just duplicate, then go back.

These are the kinds of things you don't realize you need until you discover them, then realize you can't live without...
 
what the thing in the original post supposed to do? for me it does nothing noticeably different than skipping the first two clicks.
 
+Vynce Montgomery - You can select multiple tabs by shift-clicking or ctrl-clicking, just like selecting multiple items in a list in many other UIs. You can then drag them all as one unit, e.g. to reorder them, move them to a separate window, or rip them out to form a new window.
 
hm. that doesn't seem to work for me, Chorme 18.0.1025.165 / Mac 10.7.3

though i do get weird, not-immediately-comprehensible behaviors when i click tab a, shift click b, then move a. specifically, it appears to put a into b's place, and b to wherever i just moved a. i think.
 
Maybe Mac has different conventions for multi-select? Eric and I use Linux, and I'd guess Chris does too.
 
no, mac multi-select is generally shift-click-to-select-range, command-to-toggle-only-clicked-item. whatever; i've wished for group-tab-move only a few times.
 
Sometimes it's the little things that really impress me.
