Here’s how to create a link to text on a page using the new Chrome extension

Google Chrome has made things rather convenient for users with its Extensions. And it offers multiple different functionalities for users from both Google itself and third party developers. And Google has added a new Extension which many may have been looking for a long while, but no one made. This new Extension enables users to create a link for any text on a particular webpage.

This makes this rather convenient for sharing any particular information you want. You may be reading an article and want to send a friend a paragraph which you find significant. You could just copy and past that whole paragraph for your friend. But that takes away the context along with any images and other visuals that might be of aid. This is where this feature comes into play. Let’s us explain how to use it.
