How to Disable Chrome Tab Cards

Google Chrome Tab Cards

The new Tab Hover Cards feature introduced in the recently released Google Chrome version 78 isn’t bad. As I understand it the Tab Hover Cards feature is still under development. Perhaps it will improve, but as it stands now it is just an annoyance and I would like to disable it and get back to my tool-tip upon tab hover. This article will show you how to do just that.

    Thanks for the clear instructions and illustrations on How to Disable Chrome Tab Cards. They worked wonderfully! These tab cards were driving me nuts because I couldn’t see other information I needed and couldn’t get them to disappear or move! Thanks again!
