As a developer with a probably a hundered tab open at a time, these are some of the keyboard shortcuts which have come in handy a lot.

  • Ctrl + Shift + t - Opens previously closed tab in browser!
  • Ctrl + d - Add bookmark for current tab (will put the bookmark in the last folder location you chose automatically)
  • Ctrl + w - Closes the current tab
  • Ctrl + Shift + w - Closes the current window
  • Ctrl + T - Opens a new tab
  • Ctrl + K - moves cursor to the address bar and changes the address bar to a google search.
  • f12 - Opens the developer tools
  • Ctrl + h - Open the History page in a new tab
  • Ctrl + j - Open the Downloads page in a new tab
  • Ctrl + Shift + Delete - Open the Clear Browsing Data options

Are there other useful keyboard shortcuts that we should know about?
