Hiding the new "Search tabs" button?

With the latest Brave Dev 1.26.35 update, there is now a new round “Search tabs” button in the title bar next to the window buttons. Is it possible to hide this in some way? Searching for it hints about a flag in Chrome, chrome://flags/#enable-tab-search, but that flag isn’t available in Brave Dev. Will the flag be available in Brave too, at some point?

OS: Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit.
Brave Dev: Version 1.26.35 Chromium: 91.0.4472.57 (Official Build) dev (64-bit)


Thanks for reaching out.
No way to do this yet, but I’m opening an issue right now to ensure that we get a setting surfaced for this. Will reply once I’ve filed it.

Thanks for bringing it up. I would love to disable it too.

Same here.
Instant looked for how to disable unwanted crapola that is forced up on people all the time.

Sadly, it looks like the latest Chrome has removed the option to hide the button… :confused: I hope Brave can still support it in its own flag though… :crossed_fingers:

Closing this thread as the team is aware of the need to have a disable/enable option for this, issue logged here: https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/16007
