There is no preference.

There is, however, a "hack" that will fix it so long as you don't keep upgrading your browser. (If you do you'll have to do it again.) See:

While I think that this should be fixed because it's such a hot topic and, obviously, a lot of people aren't happy, I have to say that speaking *personally* I couldn't be happier with this behaviour. I simply couldn't stand tab groups appending themselves to the end. While there *could* be different, and better, ways of handling what happens than what we have now, I still find it a huge improvement over what we had before. In fact I can't think of a single instance since I started using tab groups that I've wanted them to do anything other than what they're doing right now (replacing everything as with a single bookmark). In my mind, forcing an append is probably the *worst* of all possible scenarios. (Then again, I can also see how a lot of people would think the same thing about forcing a complete replace.)
