Chrome 90 will let you share links to highlighted text

Google has Started rolling A feature for Chrome 90, which will allow you to create a link that takes people directly to the part of the page you highlight. The tech giant originally launched the capability as an extension last year – now that it’s officially part of Chrome itself, you no longer need to install anything extra to use.

If you want to say, point people to a part of the Wikipedia page on penguins that talks about how they are afraid of humans, all you have to do is highlight the route, right click And then choose “Copy Link” to highlight. “Then you can send the URL that Ends in a #, Whatever you want. When the page loads, it will take them to that part of the text rather than to the top of the Wikipedia article.

This feature can be very useful for students and colleagues, or even just for those who like to share random stuff with friends. It has already started making its way to desktop and Android devices, but you may have to wait a bit before you can access it. The rollout of the feature has not been done yet, and we are not seeing it even after upgrading to Chrome 90. For iOS users, Google says that “copy link to highlight” is “coming soon” for the platform.

Google has also launched a new PDF viewer for the browser, offering a two-page view and a new toolbar, which lets you zoom, jump to a page, save, and print with one click. Chrome Product Manager Kayce Hawkins Talked How the Chrome team has reduced the browser’s CPU usage, and revealed that tab freezing for broken groups will be available soon. When that feature launches, collapsed or hidden tabs will use less memory and CPU.
