These Google Chrome Tricks Will Save You So Much Time

Ok, you've become a Google Chrome aficionado. But do you really know how to use the browser at its full potential?

Here are some very useful tricks that will make you way more productive while you use Chrome on a Mac:

1) Reopen closed tabs

In case your system shuts down for any reason or if you closed a tab and you want to retrieve it but you don't remember the URL, just hit Shift+Command+T and the tab will magically pop back up.

2) Surf the web in secret

If you want to open an "Incognito" window that lets you browse without saving any history and cookies, just hold Shift+Command+N and the secret window will open.

3) Pin tabs to organize your very crowded window

If you are one of those who love to open a million tabs then you need to know how to manage them. If you right click on any tab you will have the option to "pin" it, which will make it smaller and keep it on the side.

4) Use Google Keep to jot down notes

Type in your URL field and you will be directed to a very handy Google notebook where you can keep track of what you need to do.

5) Save a bunch of tabs at the same time

Shift+Command+D creates a bookmarks folder of all the tabs you have open.
