A google search gives number of methods to hide ALL tabs in chrome , but I want to hide 1 particular tab / change the display name of that tab.

Reason: I have an online music playing website open, which keeps showing tracks in the tab name and I just want to remove it from view of my work.


Right-click → select "Pin tab". Pinned tabs don't show their display name at all. (Though they also move to the very beginning of your tab bar.)

Alternatively: Drag / "tear" the tab off into its own window, then minimize that window (or even move it to another workspace), or just hide it behind your work windows.
