An upcoming release of Google Chrome might make adding bookmarks a one-step process again. Google recently introduced a reading list to its browser, so whenever you hit the bookmark button in the address bar, a menu will first ask whether you want to add a bookmark or add the site to your reading list. In Chrome Canary version 93, a flag changes that behavior, as first discovered by Redditor u/Leopeva64-2.
Chrome has been testing a handy sidebar consisting of your bookmarks and articles you’ve added to your reading list. It's not yet available in the stable version of Google's browser, but you can manually enable it in Chrome Canary if you want to try it out.
Chrome 91 has just hit the first few phones, and while you might not notice too many differences on the surface, there are quite some things going on if you know where to look. The most significant visual changes you'll see on Android are probably the redesigned website buttons and forms, like those you can see in the weekend polls of our own website. But there's more going on. Let's dive in.
If you're using the Canary version of Chrome, you might have noticed the reading list icon hanging out on the right side of the bookmarks bar, just under your profile pic and the main settings button. This is a new feature as of Chrome 89, hidden by default in the standard release but available via a flag, and enabled by default in Chrome 91 Canary. What's also present in that build, and which wasn't before, is the ability to hide it with a quick right-click.
The Wikipedia mobile app is a great way to access the site's massive wealth of information. The beta program for the Android app, as well as the separate Wikipedia Beta app, has just received a new update that drastically changes the reading list functionality.
