3. Enjoy.

The change takes effect immediately. Once the change has been made, you can start enjoying the tab preview feature in the browser. Those who often have more than 10 tabs open in the browser will benefit from it the most.

On the preview popup, you can even do a search to help find the tab you are looking for much easier. Simply switch to Show all tabs first, and type in the words in the search box at the top of the Preview window.
