- Chrome ‘Reading List’ feature appears on the latest Canary version.
- The new reading list feature allows users to save links they want to look at later to a dedicated list.
- It is used as an alternative for the traditional bookmarks for archiving purposes.
Have you ever looked at an article that seemed interesting but you couldn’t really finish reading it because you were in a hurry? Then after coming back to that web page that article just seemed to disappear into thin air all of a sudden?
Google introduced new features on Chrome for an improved browsing experience, including easier tab access and management, and faster tab loading.
Google wants to make it easier for you to hide and unhide this option, and so they’re introducing a feature that helps you quickly toggle this option on and off in Chrome.
Reading List in Google Chrome
The new reading list feature allows users to save links they want to look at later to a dedicated list, instead of simply bookmarking them. Chrome may finally be preparing to release the feature on the desktop version.
This service is similar to the features offer by Read It Later, Pocket, and Instapaper, but at the moment Google mode is the bare minimum and only acts as a link collection service.
This feature is also really easy to use, users will just have to press 3 dot menu and add any current opened link/tab into a Reading list or they can hold onto the link on any web page and they will come across the usual list of popup which will include ‘open in new tab’, at the end of this popup, the list will also have a ‘Read later’ option, users will only have to tap on that to save it for later read! The articles will be save in Bookmarks in a separate ‘Reading list’ folder.
Google says, there are also improvements to make browsing faster, including Profile Guided Optimization.
Thanks for Reading!!
