#167 Speed Up Web Browsing

May 02, 2013

Here are some shortcuts that you can use to save time while web browsing:

 

  • Skip http://

You don’t need to include “http://” or “www.” when entering a website address.  You can just enter “google.com” and press Enter.

  • Jump to the address bar

You can quickly move the cursor to the address bar by pressing CTRL+L on a PC or Command+L on a Mac.

  • Toggle full-screen

You can toggle full-screen mode on a PC by pressing F11 and on a Mac by pressing Control+Command+F.

 

You can use these shortcuts in conjunction with shortcuts mentioned in previous tips for zooming in and out of a web page or switching between tabs.
