    Microsoft will make it possible to uninstall Chrome PWAs from the Settings app or the control panel (something that is already possible to do with Edge PWAs).

    This has been talked about for more than a year, a Microsoft engineer had uploaded a patch to Gerrit to implement that option but it was abandoned. A few days ago another patch was uploaded and, according to the Chromium bug, the target for this feature is Chrome 86.

    This is what the patch says:
    PWA on Desktop Windows: Uninstall PWA from OS settings.

    When user uninstall a PWA from Windows Settings or Control, it also uninstall PWA from browser register.

    The Microsoft engineer in charge of this option has posted a video showing the new feature in action in Chrome:

    It seems that soon you will be able to save tabs for later easily in Chrome thanks to a new button and menu.

    Currently this can be done by saving all the tabs in a folder in the bookmarks or also by installing one of the multiple extensions that exist, but it seems that Chromium developers want to make this process easier and native, at least that is what is deduced from the description of a new flag added today in the Canary version:Latest Google Chrome released for Windows-read-later-flag.png

    In Edge legacy there is a feature called "Set Aside Tabs" (button and menu), perhaps in Chrome it will work more or less the same way. The flag still doesn't work.
    The new "Read later" button is now available in Chrome Canary (86.0.4232.0):

    Many people thought that the button would be located in the toolbar (same as the "Collections" button in Edge) but, as seen in the image, the button appears in the bookmarks bar, this is what the the commit says:
    Add Read later skeleton implementation.

    This is hidden behind a feature flag. This change adds a new button to the bookmarks bar which opens an empty bubble containing a WebView.

    Create a ReadingListModelFactory for desktop use.
    Of course, nothing appears on the menu yet because this is just one of the first steps in the process of implementing this new feature.

    Not sure if it was mentioned..., in Canary, you can now drag the GMC, via a flag; stays on top always...

    Undecided whether this additional feature is useful, especially if you already have media control on the keyboard, mouse and/or Volume OSD.

    Collapsing Groups is also erratic, seems you can only collapse one Group at a time...
