Google Chrome Keyboard Shortcuts

Written by on March 6, 2013 in Others - No comments

Google chrome is one of the best and fastest browser which was developed by Google. This browser was released in 2008 and it was made with webkit layout engines. At present Google chrome is the most commonly used browser on earth.

There are various themes and extensions in Google Chrome so that you can customize it according to your needs.

There are some awesome features in Google Chrome:

It is amazingly fast and it supports all type of dynamically coded websites and it loads all type of contents without flickers and getting crashed. There is an incognito window which does not save any history of browsing and cookies, passwords and any other traces. The tabs are easy to switch on the top and it has a very good start up page with commonly visited pages. Chrome also has its own task manager which shows memory used, CPU and tasks that are running.  

More than these features I will share some Google chrome keyboard shortcuts which allow you to browse faster and to do the work on time.
