Google Chrome is getting a “Read Later” feature to save tabs for later

There are times when we come across an article, where we want to give it a read but due to some reasons prefer to save it for later. But till date, there has been no perfect way where one can get back to the saved article. Although, there are different ways where an article can be saved as a bookmark, or you can head on to the Notes or Sticky Notes apps or save it in an email draft etc. These different options do not turn out to be smooth as native option might be. Almost two-thirds of the world’s internet browsing population uses Chrome as the primary browser. Chrome would be soon adding the feature of native menu option, where you can save links and revisit them later. A commit to the Chromium Gerrit was recently added by Google which suggested that soon option of “Read later” can be added behind a Chrome flag.

According to the description, once the user enables the flag a new button for “Read Later” will appear. The button will direct you to a menu where you will be able to see all the tabs that have been saved for later. Since the feature is not available now, so nothing can be revealed about the looks or functions. It includes the latest version 86.0.4213.0 of Chrome Canary.

Chrome’s hunger for RAM makes this feature much more desirable. Keeping a bunch of tabs open in the background sounds to be the least desirable option, while you know that Chrome is hogging up on RAM and it has made the computer much slower. As per the Google team, we also have the updates that Google is currently working on lowering the consumption of RAM by the Chrome browser.

Until this feature of Chrome flag is launched, you can take a sneak peek into the Chrome extension which has been named as the “LINER” to save different links or excerpts from articles. With the help of LINER one can also mark or highlight the important parts of the article so that you do not need to go through the entire text if you read it again.
