Google Chrome just added 3 amazing address bar shortcuts.

Google has launched three all-new shortcuts, and with almost 2.6 billion users globally, any significant changes to Chrome might have a big impact. These shortcuts should significantly reduce the time normal Chrome desktop users spend searching through their tabs, bookmarks, and history.

There is no easier way to use these shortcuts. Click the search box in Chrome and type one of the following: @tabs @history or @bookmarks (depending on what you’re looking for), followed by the word you want to search for. This will look through the specified site and identify any material that matches.

Lower-spec machines that struggle to open a plethora of tabs at once benefit significantly from the quick search capabilities of bookmarks and history. It’s important to know that Chrome allows you to quickly view your search history by pressing Ctrl H. Safari on Apple devices also can open tabs and perform a history search.

It’s good to see Google improving Chrome with valuable features like this and the recently added side panel. Still, we want to see these new shortcuts brought to the mobile version, especially since we already think Chrome is one of the best Android browsers.
