Software giant Microsoft is testing a new feature known as ‘sets’ which finally brings ‘tabbed browsing to the Windows operating system. However, it will not be the kind of tabular interface that one would expect and where users open multiple files associated with the same program and manage them all in one window.
The company posted details about ‘Sets’ and other changes coming to the upcoming Windows Insider Preview in a post on the Windows Insider website. Terry Myerson, the EVP for Windows and Devices Group detailed all the upcoming features that the Windows team was experimenting with at Microsoft.
Myerson confirmed that Microsoft is finally rolling out Timeline in the next Windows Insider Preview for the testers who are enrolled to receive Fast Ring 1 updates. The company had previously previewed the feature at its Annual BUILD conference earlier this year. For the uninitiated, Fast Ring is one of the release channels for users who test early preview builds of Windows 10. The company usually rolls out the fresh and untested features in the Fast Ring where people want to test the latest features without much worry about stability.
The Slow ring, on the other hand, is for the testers who would want to test the feature after most of the bugs have been ironed out. Both these rings are part of the ‘Development Branch’.
