Google has released a new chrome extension that allows users to hyperlink to particular items of textual content inside a web page. This feature allows anyone to create a link that, upon click, takes users to a specific piece of text on a page. It’s the same technology that Google now sometimes uses to link to specific parts of a webpage in search results.
After installing the extension, simply highlight the text you want to link to, then right-click, and select “Copy Link to Selected Text.” This can be then shared and opened by anyone using a compatible browser
Text fragments are a small but useful piece of functionality that makes it easier to find specific information on a webpage.
With Chrome 80’s launch back in February, Google’s Browser started supporting the Scroll to Text Fragment feature.
The Link to Text Fragment extension is available now in the Chrome Web Store.
