Chrome is my go-to browser and has been for the past decade. I have previously used Firefox and Internet Explorer but I’ve always preferred Chrome. There are a few annoying aspects in the Chrome browser but overall I find it to be reliable and fast. One of the most annoying thing that popped up after installing version 89 is the Reading List. You will find the Reading List feature on the top right-hand corner of the bookmark bar.

A lot of people have found this feature annoying (including myself) and I wanted to figure out a way to remove it from the bookmark bar. I found out there are two options to remove the Reading List (maybe there could be more) but here are the instructions on how to remove them in v89 and in v90. I recommend that if you’re on v89 of Chrome, upgrade to v90 as it’s much easier to remove the Reading List feature.
