Have you ever sent somebody a link to an article because you wanted them to read a specific sentence or paragraph, only to find out that they couldn’t find what you wanted because the article was too long or too dense? Yea, we can relate.

Fortunately, Google just released a new Chrome extension that solves that problem completely. It’s called Link to Text Fragment and it lets you create a special link that opens directly to the specific word, sentence or paragraph that you want. It even highlights the section so it can’t be missed. Basically, it makes you way more efficient at linking to articles.

Once you add the free Chrome extension to your browser (hit the “Add to Chrome” button on this link ), it’s really easy to use. Simply highlight the section of any article you want to link directly to, right-click, select the “Copy Link to Selected Text” from the drop-down menu, then paste the link where you want to share it. It’s that simple.
