Google Chrome will soon be able to save tabs for review later

Google is working on a new feature for Chrome called “Read Later” and will allow users to snooze tabs for later reading. Links to this feature were found among the experimental flags of the Chrome Canary test browser. However, it seems to be in early stages of testing as flag activation does not enable this feature in the browser.

Interestingly, in this area, the Chrome browser acts as a catch-up. Its users rely on third-party extensions to provide this functionality, even though the legacy version of Microsoft Edge had a similar feature. Later, the Defer Tabs feature was ported by Microsoft to Chromium-based Edge, where it was called Collections. Mozilla Firefox also implements a similar feature through the “Pocket” function.

It will be interesting to see what features the Read Later feature in Google Chrome will have. Microsoft Edge allows users to export Collections to Office applications. Likewise, the search giant could integrate Read Later with its G Suite product to make the feature attractive to corporate users.
