Guide: How to Use Custom Short­cuts to Enhance Brows­ing Experience

Don’t you find it tiresome to type the URL of a website every time you visit it? Yes, the browsers are smart these days and usually auto-complete the address, but it’s not without its flaws and can make you usually want more and better. (Image credit: arvindgrover)

Bookmarks can help too, but I consider it a waste of time for regular visits. Typing is faster than looking through the bookmark list. Still, they are necessary if we cannot remember a URL.

Somehow you don’t want to type or search your bookmarks list. Well, there is a better way to access your most visited sites. Let’s show you how to do this by assigning shortcuts and abbreviations to your favorite websites. Besides discussing the regular methods, we are also talking about a cool Chrome add-on called Extension for shortcuts by the end of this post, so read on!

Cool Tip Did you know Ctrl + L put the focus of your cursor on the Chrome and Firefox address bar? Ctrl + K in the search box.
