BONUS POINTGoogle Chrome tips & tricks
That funky little box at the top is called the Omnibox and it isn’t just for website addresses; this guy is also a calculator, currency converter, and more. You don’t even need to hit enter to see results, the Omnibox will immediately provide you with a result.
- Simple math problems
- Convert currency
- Convert units
You can of course always use it as a search engine.
Type “Chrome://restart” into your Omnibox and Chrome will immediately restart. This closes and reopens all Chrome windows and tabs, except for incognito tabs. It will also close any other profiles you had open.
