    Closing Old Browser Windows In Labs View

    surfing on the tab is neat, it handles quite a few frames.
    in standard view you can X old ones to clear space.
    but in the Google Labs mode, which runs full screen with the little side control icon, you can't tell how many are left till it's full up.
    THEN the problems begin.

    How do you clear out the old ones?

    I have to resort to going back to standard display and clearing out the debris and back thru settings to reset Labs.
    Surely there must be a neater solution.

    Any suggestions?

    You can delete the present window with the X button on the labs dashboard if you have a 10.1 on my Note however I need to minimize the window with a pinch, I can then scroll through the window as close the Windows I don't need with the - button that appears in the right hand upper corner.

    Thanks, seems logical but on my 7 doing that only kills the page I am on, which is generally the one I want to keep!
    I can get the icon showing all the tabs but you can't kill one or lots without loading each individually.
    It is quicker to hit settings and kill Labs, then X out tabs on the top bar in sequence, before rechecking Labs.
    There should be a quick and simple way to do it or just FIFO the stack when it fills up.

    I am still wondering if I am missing something.

    What I do is I goto the first window and then I start to delete them from there. That is the fastest way I know how to delete multiple windows.

    as this is really more of a Google Labs issue, I will raise it on their feedback site too.
    Will post on here should anything come of it.

    I would still be interested in hearing from other users if they are having the same problem.
    Even more so if they have found a neat workaround!
