Most people will consider the speed of the browser and how user-friendly it is to determine the best one. Here’s a look at some new chrome features and tips and to make Chrome faster, more effective, and extremely flexible
Play audio/video files directly in Chrome
Chrome can play audio/video files as well, All you need to do is drag an audio file or a video file into a new tab.It’s a very basic media player but can come in handy if you are in a rush to open an audio/video file.
Use the reader mode for easy reading
If you want to read something at leisure and don’t want all the images/ads in an article, just turn on the reader mode. To enable reader mode, open a new tab in Chrome and type chrome://flags/#enable-reader-mode and enable the reader mode option. Once it’s enabled, in the Chrome menu you will see a Enter Reader Mode option on pages compatible with it.
Group tabs for easy browsing
This is one of our fav chrome trick
Google got the tab grouping feature on Chrome which makes it easier to organise tabs. You can add labels, colour code tabs for easy browsing. All you need to do is right-click on the tab and choose the Add to New Group option. You can add tabs to a group or remove them. There’s also an option to hide or show these group of tabs.
If you consume a lot of articles on the internet, chances are you’re using apps like Pocket to save some articles that you want to read later, right? Well, that functionality is now built-in on Chrome. All you have to do is enable the ‘read later’ Chrome flag
With the flag enabled, you can click on the Bookmark icon and you will see a new ‘Add to Reading List’ option. This is great because you can easily keep a track of all the pages you want to read later, and even mark them as read/unread.
You can access this Chrome flag by heading over to chrome://flags/#read-later
a newly added Google Chrome features now allows you to control YouTube no matter what tab is currently open. When playing a video on the platform, the browser menu will feature a music note icon.
Click it to see what you’re currently playing. Either control playback right from this pop-up window or click the video’s title to force YouTube open.
Use key commands to navigate down and up
This one is slightly obvious but users can use the spacebar button to scroll down on any given web page. Moreover, if the user hits the shift key and the spacebar key at the same time, Google Chrome will scroll back up.
Take a URL and drag it to Chrome’s bookmarks bar
If a given user comes across a website which he/she wants a regular, easy and continual access to, then the user can quickly add that website and/or service to his Bookmarks bar.
The easiest way to do that is to highlight the URL and then drag that URL directly onto the Bookmarks bar.That is it.
Users have the option of editing the Bookmarks bar later if they feel like changing the name of the new bookmark.
If that wasn’t enough already, it is also true that the user can drag a given URL into the Bookmarks bar from separate sources from Google Chrome.
If you’re working with lots of tabs, need to keep certain ones open, and maybe want to make sure you don’t lose something, considering pinning them to Chrome.
Pin a tab by right-clicking on it and selecting Pin. This turns the tab into a small icon on the left that will remain if you close and re-open the browser window; drag to re-order.
Use key commands to browse through the Chrome tabs
A lot of users have this need of reading something real quick on another Google tab.
For such users, Google Chrome offers users a feature where if the user holds down the Control button or, on the Mac platform, the Command key and then any number from 1 to 9.
Each of these given numbers on the keyboard has an association with a separate and different Chrome tab. The counting starts from the left at 1 and moves all the way to the right incrementally.
This means users have the option of cycling through tab 1 to tab 9 via the keyboard shortcut. You don’t need us to tell you that this is a very useful keyboard shortcut
In-built malware scanner to keep your data safe
Did you know that there’s an in-built malware scanner in Chrome? Just head to Settings and go to the Advanced option. Here you can choose Reset and clean up and then Clean up Computer — this will scan the computer properly and if anything suspicious is found, Chrome will report and clean it immediately.
