Get the link above from a blog, and it is actually a book (this one very close to a real book) published by Google Chrome Team, that you can read it page by page, and this book is about the browser and the web.

I think it is quite a nice book to read if you spend a lot of your time on the internet. But what I am try to highlight here is the great “book” feature in the page. If you look closely at the page, under the page, right corner, there are buttons that let you turn off the light and choose the size of the book you want. These are not new or any high tech stuff, but the simple design and how the whole page function really impress me.

Beside all those nice stuff, one good feature I like is the page allows you to resume the reading. try to turn to some page and close the page (either the tab or the whole browser), and go to the same link again.

Now it let you to choose Resume Reading or Go to The Beginning. Click Resume Reading to get back to where you stop last time. Isn’t this impressive?

I am using Google Chrome browser and for online PDF file, I set the browser to automatically use Google Docs Viewer (the plugin: https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/nnbmlagghjjcbdhgmkedmbmedengocbn) and so far everything work nicely, but one thing I wish Google could add to the Google Docs Viewer is the Resume Reading feature.

So, enjoy reading!
