Web browsers have become a lot like operating systems and maintaining productivity in these environments can sometimes be a challenge, which is why Chrome introduces new features to increase your productivity.
And theStarted Google is launching a feature for version 90 of the Chrome browser, which allows you to create a link that takes people directly to the part of the page that you specified.
The tech giant originally launched this capability last year as a browser extension called Link to Text Fragment, and now that it’s an official part of Chrome itself, you won’t have to install anything extra to use it anymore.
And if you want, for example, to direct people to the part of the Wikipedia page about penguins that talks about not being afraid of humans, then all you have to do is select that section, right-click and then choose Copy link to highlight.
You can then send this URL, which ends with a # sign, to anyone you want, and when the page loads, they are taken to that part of the text instead of at the top of the Wikipedia article.
This feature can be very useful for students and colleagues who work together, or even for anyone who likes to share random things with friends.
The feature started making its way to the Chrome browser version for desktop computers and Android devices, and for iOS users, Google: The Copy link to highlight feature is coming soon to the platform.
Google has also launched a new PDF viewer for the browser, which offers a two-page view and a new toolbar that lets you zoom in and out, go to the page, save and print with one click.
Google has developed search features in tabs and tab groups to help users, and the many open tabs can now be renamed with descriptive text that you can see when pressing Alt + Tab.
Google also talked about how the Chrome browser team reduces the CPU usage of the browser as well, and revealed that the tab freeze feature for hidden groups will be available soon, and when this feature is turned on, the hidden tabs use less memory and CPU.
