It looks like Google will remove the “Add to Reading list” entry from the omnibox star, so in the future you will be able to bookmark the current page with just one click (just like you could do it before the “Reading list” feature existed).

It looks like Google will remove the "Add to Reading list" entry from the omnibox star, so in the future you will be able to bookmark the current page with just one click (just like you could do it before the "Reading list" feature existed).

When the "Reading list" feature was added, a new menu was also added to the omnibox star:

Omnibox star menu.

Of course, this change upset several users who were used to clicking the star icon and quickly bookmarking the page.

Currently, if you want to remove that menu, you have to disable the "Reading list" feature entirely (with a flag), well, in Chrome Canary you can now remove the omnibox star menu and continue using the "Reading list" feature.

This is the commit in Chromium Gerrit:

Read later: add flag for moving the add entry point from the omnibox to the list.

Remove the reading list option from the omnibox star when the flag is enabled. Update the "add current *page" button to match UX specs and enable it when the flag is enabled or if side panel is enabled.

As it says in the commit, to remove the menu I showed above, you have to use a command line flag:

–enable-features=ReadLaterAddFromDialog

With that parameter you can remove the \"Add to reading list\" entry and continue using the Reading list feature.

Bookmark the page with just one click (GIF).

I guess this change will be enabled by default in the stable version in the future.

The command line flag also enables a new button in the Reading List bubble (this is mentioned in the commit):

\"Add current tab\" button.

PS, Everyone knows that there is a keyboard shortcut to bookmark the page, but there are users who prefer to control the device, if possible, only with the mouse (I am one of them).
