Bookmark and Share

chromeWhile surfing the Internet, at a certain point, you may need to send an e-mail containing the link of the page you are reading to your friends or coworkers or whoever you want. Most browsers have got a “Send Link” button which lets users send a web link in a couple of steps by using their default e-mail application. Sadly, Google Chrome doesn’t have such a feature. Let’s see how we can add a Send Link button thanks to a little hack.

  1. While in Google Chrome, right-click the Bookmarks bar and click on Add Page.
  2. In the Name textbox, type the word Send Link.
  3. In the URL textbox type: javascript:location.href=’mailto:?SUBJECT=’+document.title+’&BODY=’+escape(location.href);
  4. Click OK to apply the hack.
  5. Alternatively, if you feel uncomfortable with the above procedure, just drag this link here, to your Bookmark bar
