There is no doubt that Google Chrome browser has grown in popularity since its launch and could well become the most used browser in some years, primarily because of its speed and efficiency and also because it would now form the basis of a new operating system.
1) Use Resources Page To Check Website Load Time
Right click on a web page and click on ‘ Inspect element ‘ . Then click on ‘ Resources ‘ tab to check what parts of a web page are taking time to load. Useful for developers and webmasters.
2) Detach a Tab To a New Window
Firefox 3.5 now has it but it was Google Chrome which introduced it. You can easily click and drag a tab outside of the main browser window to a new window.
3) Make the Most Out Of Address Bar
Google Chrome’s address bar works as Google search bar too. Hence you could do things like conversions, calculations and dictionary lookups directly from the address bar.
4) Drag Downloads To Desktop / Folder
Another cool feature similar to the tab detach feature. You can drag and drop downloads to any folder or the desktop directly from the browser
5) Drag & Resize Text Box On a Web Page
Another cool feature. You can drag any text box at the corner and increase its size. Like in the screenshot below, I can resize the comment box of this blog easily by dragging it downwards.
