How to Open a New Tab in the Chrome Browser on an iPhone


Have you ever needed to find a new Web page, but needed to reference something from a page that you were already on? Switching back and forth between those two pages could be frustrating, but fortunately tabbed browsing offers a convenient solution to this problem.

Tabbed browsing is a part of most modern Web browsers, including the Chrome app on your iPhone. Tabbed browsing allows you to have multiple Web pages open at the same time, which means that you can easily navigate between these pages as needed. Our guide below will show you two different methods for opening new tabs in the Chrome browser on your iPhone.
