Restore Closed Tabs in Google Chrome
Google Chrome Browser does not support overflowing tabs, which results in Tabs shrinking in size and becoming increasingly difficult to identify as you start opening multiple tabs in Google Chrome.
Ultimately, there comes a point when tabs start overlapping and hiding behind one another, making it impossible to open more new tabs.
According to Google, it is aware of the problem, but has chosen not to introduce the overflowing tabs feature in Chrome due to usability issues.
We chose not to go with an overflow menu or scrolling tab strip like in some other browsers because we think there are other usability problems with those approaches. – Ben Goodger, Chromium Blog
