Chrome 85 to save Web Pages as Tagged PDF

One of the most adopted browsers in the World, Chrome is looking forward to add a new feature in its 85th edition that let the user to save web pages as Tagged PDF. Those of you who have no idea of What the Tagged PDF is? Well, Google describes it as a file that contains extra metadata about the structure of a document. It includes some more data like the heading of the document, lists, tables, paragraphs, and image descriptions.

Currently, when we can save a web page in Chrome (from the right click option) it is saved as an HTML file but this feature helps to save the web page as Tagged PDF. I know many of you assert, In Chrome we can save a web page as PDF but that is possible only when we first print the page and then change the print option to save as PDF. Well, that also generates the Tagged PDF. Now, the 85th edition of Google Chrome is looking forward to add the same feature in the Save as option.

A Search Engine Journal report states this feature may released with Chrome 85 that is scheduled to release on August 2020. For now, this feature is experimental and those who have the Chrome 85 beta can access it with a flag mentioned below. Simply Copy, Paste, and Enter the below mentioned flag in the Chrome Omnibox to open a new settings page to enable this feature.


Once you paste this flag in the Chrome Omnibox, the settings page automatically scrolls you down to the Expert Tagged PDF option. Here, all you have to do is Click on the button that is labelled Default.

Besides looking forward to introduce this feature, Chrome is also improving its native PDF reader to handle the Tagged as well as normal PDF better.
