When bookmarks aren’t enough, we often use tools like Pocket and Evernote to save web pages we want to visit later. These platforms let you sync more than one device; when you save web pages, you can add notes. Someone at Google must have thought that Chrome should come with this feature by default. 9To5Google says that because of this, Google is testing a new bookmarking system with a small group of users. Those in the test will see a new bookmark button when they use Search on their mobile browsers.

Google Search tests letting you bookmark pages directly from mobile results

It’s next to the three-dot search results menu, and users can tap it to save a page right from the search results on their mobile browsers. It will also tell you where the page is saved (e.g., Favorite Pages), and the “Change” option in the bar that appears when you tap the button will let you move it right away. Even though the test is only for mobile browsers, 9To5Google says that saved pages can be viewed anytime through the Collection tab on both browsers and desktops. In addition to titles, the saved bookmark pages have images and the platforms they are on. Also, the number of pages you can save is not limited.

There have been no announcements yet about when or if the new bookmarking system will be made public, but it could be a massive improvement over Google Search.
