The latest version of the Google Chrome browser comes with a secret Read Later feature that allows users to save a tab to be read at a later date.

The feature is not enabled by default, but you can enable it by activating a Chrome flag:



Once this is enabled, you have to relaunch chrome after which a new option that says “Read tab later” will be added to the Chrome tab right-click menu.

Once clicked, the tab closes and a link to it can now be found in a new bookmarks folder called “Reading list.”

If you have the Chrome bookmarks bar activated, the folder can be accessed via a button on the bookmarks bar’s right side, named “Reading list.”

Once pressed, a dropdown list shows all the tabs that have been set aside, along with the tabs that have already been read.

This feature is one of the many Easter eggs Google has hidden inside Chrome and will help you have a more organized desktop.
