Link To Your Highlighted Text
Last year Google launched a browser extension called Link to Text Fragment. Now, Google is introducing a new feature in Chrome 90 Browser that will allow users to create a link to a section of a website that they’ve highlighted. This latest Google Chrome 90 feature is still rolling out to users and works just as the browser extension did.
According to a blog post from Google product manager Kayce Hawkins: Visit a web page, highlight the text you want to create a link to, right-click, and select “copy link to highlight.” A URL ending in a pound sign (#) is generated, which you can then share with others. When they open the link, they’ll be sent to the specific highlighted section instead of the beginning of the page.
With “Copy Link to Highlight”, you can share a URL for selected text highlighted for the recipient.
New Google Chrome 90 PDF Features
Google also added more features to make working with PDFs better: document properties, two-page view, and an updated top toolbar, which puts the most important PDF actions (zoom, jump to page, save, print, and more) within a single click. These new Google Chrome 90 features are rolling out now.
Last but not least, Google is also going to soon launch tab freezing for collapsed groups. This means when groups are collapsed (and tabs are hidden), the tabs inside use less memory and CPU, making your computer quicker. And right now, I have 11 groups collapsed with 64 tabs inside, so that’s awesome. This feature is coming soon to beta.
Google said the “copy link to highlight” feature is already available on desktop and Android devices for some users. The Google Chrome 90 feature is “coming soon” to iOS, the company added.
