New Chrome browser feature

 

The new Chrome v90 has a feature that may be useful to folks here replying to others' questions. It's Copy Link To Text.

The link below will show results of using it, and the link in the link, shows a second example of it.

A secondary benefit to us here is that we sometimes want to refer readers of a thread to a specific reply in an earlier thread that runs multiple pages and the options we have are to 1) just offer the link to the thread and tell readers to go to page 4 and scroll down to a reply of xx/yy/zzzz by user xxxxxxxxx or 2) to jump through hoops to get a link that actually takes readers to the xx/yy/zzzz reply and this Copy Link To Text seems to solve that. Do other browsers offer this?

If my explanation leaves anyone confused, here's a better description of it:

Mozille/Firefox as well

I’m pretty sure that Mozilla and/or Firefox had or have the feature but it may have been part of an added extension. As best I recall it was accessed by a right click on the URL.

According to one report I read, it's being rolled out now and will eventually appear on all devices.

I also was one not receiving this but followed the link that said you can force it now by going to:

chrome://flags/

and enabling Copy Link To Text. I did it and it works fine.

In the Chrome browser, just type, or copy and paste chrome://flags/, into the browser.

Thanks....

this is helpful info.
