Recently, Google Chrome introduced some new features that may help boost your productivity — most notably including a means to connect people to particular text from, say, an article or blog.
When you create these links, clicking it highlights the text that you want to emphasize so it’s obvious what you want the recipient to focus on, while it’s a statistic or an alluring quote from your favourite celebrity. All you need to do is highlight the text, right click, select the option”Copy link to highlight,” and send the link.
It feels immediately enjoy an extension of featured snippets, a kind of Google Search result that works in basically the exact same way. If you search for something and get a featured snippet result, clicking that link (apparently ) takes you directly to the text which implements, highlighting it in yellow.
The”link to highlight” feature is already hitting desktop variations of Chrome, and it ought to be coming to Android and iOS soon.
Also brand new is a more streamlined approach to managing digital documents. As you might already know about filling out and rescue PDFs in Chrome, the browser has a new sidebar to check at thumbnails and access pages immediately. Additionally, it has a fresh demonstration mode, in which you can eliminate on-screen distractions like toolbars, the address bar, and tabs.
Other new features include a two-page view and an updated top toolbar which places useful PDF commands like”zoom””jump to page””save” and”print and more” into a single click. These developments are launching now.
For men and women who often find themselves sharing Chrome windows with an audience, this next one needs to be a welcome inclusion: Now when sharing or presenting Chrome windows, the browser silences all notifications. It also turns them back when you are finished. You will no longer risk yourself or your audience being diverted while delivering important news.
Google also promises that the recently updated Chrome has received some CPU usage optimizations, which makes it less likely to purify your personal computer or chew up as much battery life.
