    I have Nexus 4 and 7. When using the default Chrome browser on them I have had the option to press on the page I want in the bookmarks folder and send the link to the homescreen
    This was handy for my bookmarks I use every day
    However since the latest update I am unable to do that
    There is no option in the menu that comes up.
    Is there any way round this?

    In my new chrome version 3200.0.1700.99, that option has just appeared. I get to it by pressing menu button while browsing a page. For me on my GS4 running 4.3, this is the new version that came out in the last few days...but may be it's a different version than yours?
