Many users of existing browsers keep their 'primary' tabs to the left of their tab-strip. This allows easy access to commonly used applications that users keep open all the time. Others use bookmarks to quickly access their favorite apps without leaving them open, though bookmarks will replace their current window which may be undesirable.

Pinned tabs are an acknowledgement of both of these behaviors:

Pinned tabs remain available across sessions, allowing users to always access their favorite apps from a consistent location. Pinned tabs can be created via contextual menu, dragging a tab to the pinned area, or opening an application.
