Google Chrome Labs will allow users to test experimental features easily
Google Chrome Labs is being tested as a new feature in the latest version of Chrome Canary. By enabling Chrome Labs, users can access it through the toolbar menu to see the experimental features for the user. These can be used on Mac, Windows, and Linux, but only through Chrome Canary as of now. The two new Chrome Labs features currently are Reading List and Tab Search that you can enable, disable, or set as Default from the toolbar itself.
Enable Chrome Labs feature in Chrome Canary adds a flask-like icon to the corner of the toolbar menu. The Reading List feature allows users to right-click the tab or click the bookmark star icon to add a tab to a reading list. These tabs can be accessed from the bookmarks bar. The tab search feature, meanwhile, adds an icon to the tab bar that can be used to search for an open tab.
Chrome Labs is the search giant’s way of promoting certain experimental features, as well as increasing their visibility. While users also have the option to go to the chrome flags page to view features, Chrome Labs is a simpler and more structured way to keep track of new experiments.
