Safari Tab Groups in macOS Monterey is a feature aimed at improving tab organization and management.

With the increasing number of tabs we often have open, it can be challenging to keep track.

Tab Groups provide a convenient way to save and manage related tabs, whether for work, shopping, or trip planning.

Now, you can even share these tab groups with others. This feature got introduced with macOS Ventura.
