Chrome isn’t just a web browser — it’s the foundation of a notebook friendly operating system, ready for you to explore its darkest secrets. With its rapid release development strategy, it is aggressively pouring in new features in each upcoming version. There’s a ton to be written about how to get the most out of Google’s deceptively-simple browser, but today we’re focusing just on the brass tacks.
Here are few quick tips to help you make the most out of Chrome by taking advantage of some of its more functional tools and time-saving setups.
Chrome Instant fastens searching and browsing. With Instant enabled, most pages begin loading as soon as you type a URL in the Omnibox, before you press Enter. To enable Chrome Instant go to option at top left when page open select “Enable Instant for faster searching.”
Split Chrome into double-pane view
This bookmarklet from Chromeplugins.org is incredibly useful. It is very useful to compare two websites or search results side by side. Drag the Chrome Split Browser bookmarklet into your bookmarks toolbar. When you click the bookmarklet, it asks you to choose the two websites you want and displays them in a double pane.
Stats on Resources Page
Resources pages in Google Chrome have tons of information for professional users and administrators. Right click inside the page and select the option of Inspect the Element, go to the resources tab and reload the web page.
Use AutoFill to Auto-Complete an Address
If you find yourself typing your address time and time again, you may use Chrome’s AutoFill options which can remember it and save you the repeat effort. To activate this feature, click on the wrench icon, select “Options,” then click on the “Personal Stuff,” then choose “AutoFill options.” By selecting “Add address,” you can enter your details. The next time you are presented with a form, you won’t have to manually type it all in.
