What Are Some Of The Great Features Found In Google Chrome?
What are the chances that you’re using Google Chrome to read this article? Pretty high? Google Chrome is one of the top web browsers used by billions of people worldwide. It’s a popular browsing solution, thanks to its speed, security, and simplicity. But beyond that, Chrome comes with several little-known tricks and shortcuts that could potentially make your browsing even easier and more fun. These include:
- Do math in the Omnibox
- Create a QR code for any website
- Enable the Bookmarks bar
- Click the star to add a name to your bookmarked page and save
- Leave the names blank for a bar of icons
Do Math in the Omnibox
Did you know you can type any math problem in the Omnibox and have the answer displayed as a drop-down upon clicking the = sign? Well, now you know! Even better, the Omnibox solves written questions like, “how many inches are in 3 feet?”
Create a QR Code for Any Website
Google recently introduced a new feature to this web browser, enabling users to generate a QR (quick response) code for any website using the app. With this QR Generator, sharing a page or website with other Chrome users will only be a few clicks away.
Enable the Bookmarks Bar
Accessing your saved web pages has never been easier, with Chrome’s ability to enable the bookmarks bar. To achieve this, you simply need to click the menu icon, proceed to “Bookmarks,” and click on “Show Bookmarks Bar.” After enabling it, the bookmarks bar will appear just below the address bar, portraying all your saved web pages.
Click the Star to Add a Name to Your Bookmarked Page and Save It
Some web page URLs may be too complicated to remember even after bookmarking them. Well, Chrome solves this by enabling you to edit the URL as you wish. You can do this by clicking the star in the address bar, name the bookmark, and select the location where you’d like to save it.
Leave the Names Blank for a Bar of Icons
Our final trick is allowing the bookmark bar only to show the website icon and not the text. The idea is to create room to bookmark more sites because the space is usually limited.
