3 Cool Things you can do in Google Chrome

If you’re a regular user (or even a new user, or not yet a user) of Google Chrome, there are plenty of tricks and tips for making the most of your “Google” experience.  One awesome feature of Chrome is the “omnibox” this is the box along the top where you typically type in the website name or URL.  But did you know what else you can do with the omnibox??

Search within a website – type the website you’d like to visit into the omnibox, and then hit “Tab”.  Now you can put in the search terms you’d like to look for–within that website.  Here’s an easy example, using Amazon:

Search Amazon

This even works with Google Drive and Gmail – go ahead, try it!

By typing in “mailto:” Google will open a new email window, set to your default email client.

Use Google Chrome as a web notepad by typing “data:text/html, <html contenteditable>” into your omnibox.
