Google Chrome 90’s new URL feature takes you to a particular section of a website


Once the link with the highlighted text is generated, you can find out by looking at the hashtag (#) that is generated at the end of the URL.

Google’s version of Chrome browser 90, which has already reached some users and is reaching others as well, will benefit from a new feature that will make it easier to share relevant information from a website. This feature is being rolled out in Chrome 90 but not everyone who is in the process has received it yet, reports The edge. The feature simply allows you to link to a section of a website that you have highlighted. This means that when a user clicks on that link, they will not only open the particular website, but also scroll to that highlighted section.

“Yesterday I read a long article with an interesting data point that I wanted to share with a colleague. Instead of copying the link from the address bar, I used Chrome’s new “link to highlight” feature by highlighting the text I want to share, right-clicking, choosing “Copy highlighted link” and then sending the link. When my colleague opened the link, he saw the exact section of the text that I wanted him to see ”, noted Kayce Hawkins, product manager at Google Chrome, in a blog post.

Once the link with the highlighted text is generated, you can find out by looking at the hashtag (#) that is generated at the end of the URL.

Hawkins added that this feature is currently rolling out to the desktop version of Chrome, but will also reach Android and iOS in the future.

This is just one of the many other features that Google is rolling out in Chrome 90. It also includes new PDF features, the ability to turn off notifications while presenting and most important of all: tune Chrome’s performance to that the processor load is less. It also means more battery life in devices.
