Tips for a Fuller Google Chrome Experience

There is more underscoring the glossy chrome interior than you might realize. In an article for Business Insider, Jeff Dunn shares obscure and useful Chrome tips. For example, go ahead and type a math equation into the omnibar up top. You might be surprised to find the answer waiting for you.

You can also go to the “Manage search engines” option in the settings to select which ones are most pertinent to you. Once this is done, you can type a URL for an applicable search engine into the omnibar, hit Tab, and then enter the item you would like to search within that engine.

Less exciting but still useful, you can enter “data:text/html, <html contenteditable>” to open the equivalent of Notepad in a tab, allowing you to jot down some things. And if the browser is slowing down, go into “More tools” to find that Chrome has its own Task Manager, where you can kill activities that are hogging resources.
