A little tweak to Google Search Console.
After many people have requested it, Google finally gave its users what they wanted and announced a small improvement to the Search Console.
Little tweak to Search Console, something many people have requested! 📢 We’re adding a “copy to clipboard” button 🖱️ Now you may see 3 icons when hovering over a URL: copy to clipboard, open in new tab, and inspect URL. We hope this small change boosts your productivity 💪 pic.twitter.com/0aTfWNV5qj

Instead of the unfriendly user experience of highlighting a URL and then going through the process of copying it whilst being vigilant not to accidentally click on it, the little tweak will allow users to copy a URL to the clipboard with one simple click. Despite being a very small improvement, this feature will certainly improve the user experience.
Really useful, especially inspect URL, because earlier we need to click it & then inspect URL was showing, where we were losing the flow of analysis.

By improving the user experience with this little tweak, Google will also be helping its users to be more productive as well as improve their workflow.
