This post is not connected to OptDuty, but I’m so happy that I finally found a way to disable ‘Reading List’ in Google Chrome. I just need to share the recipe with everyone. The solution works in Chrome version 95 and 96, and in Windows, Linux and MacOS.
But before let me mention a few interesting points about such ‘awesome’ feature.
I found even a small poll about this feature: 16% liked it, 79% did not. And I guess 16% was successful enough for the Chrome Team, so they removed feature flag which controlled ‘Reading List’. Now to the recipe:
chrome://flags, find and enable
Temporarily unexpire M94 flags.
Reading Listand disable it
This is how your
chrome://flags should look after:
PS: I’m personally keeping in Chrome only a few work-related tabs(slack, mail, etc). All other my web activities are done in awesome Firefox. Now it’s a good time to fully migrate to Firefox.
