Chrome 90 Will Let You Share Links To Highlighted Text
Google has started rolling out a feature for Chrome 90, which will allow you to create a link that takes people straight to the part of a page you highlighted.

According to a blog post from Google product manager Kayce Hawkins: Visit a web page, highlight the text you want to create a link to, right click, and select “copy link to highlight.” A URL ending in a pound sign (#) is generated, which you can then share with others. When they open the link, they’ll be sent to the specific highlighted section instead of the beginning of the page.
The feature could be very useful to students and colleagues working together, or even just to anyone who likes sharing random stuff with friends.
It has already started making its way to the desktop and to Android devices, but you may have to wait a bit before you get access to it. The feature’s rollout isn’t done yet, and we’re not seeing it even after upgrading to Chrome 90. As for iOS users, Google says “Copy link to highlight” is “coming soon” for the platform.
