The latest version of Chrome Canary has tested Google Chrome Labs as a new feature. After enabling Chrome Labs, users can access it through the toolbar menu to view user-oriented experimental features. These can be used on Mac, Windows and Linux, but are currently only available through Chrome Canary. The two new features currently provided by Chrome Labs are “reading list” and “tab search”, which you can enable, disable or set as “default” from the toolbar itself.
After enabling the Chrome Labs function on Chrome Canary, a flask-like icon will be added to the corner of the toolbar menu. The reading list feature allows users to right-click on a tab or click the bookmark star icon to add the tab to the reading list. These tabs can be accessed from the “Bookmarks” bar. At the same time, the “Tag Search” function will add an icon to the tag bar, which can be used to search for tags from the opened tags.
Chrome Labs is how the search giant promotes certain experimental features and improves their visibility. Users can also choose to visit the chrome logo page to check functionality, and Chrome Labs is a simpler and more structured way to track new experiments.
