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.
Using keywords and tags in Firefox
I have Guiding Tech on my bookmarks bar. So I right-clicked on it to open the Properties window. You can also start it by following the bookmark tool.
I tagged it with name GTIn an earlier article we also looked at the role of keywords. You must read it to understand how to use it Keywords and tags
Whenever I need to open the website for Guiding Tech, I type GT in my address bar and hit Enter.

Using bookmark names in Chrome
Again, there are multiple ways to edit a bookmark, but I prefer to right-click and choose Edit.
In the window that comes up, give your bookmark a short name, for example GT and keep it.
The next time you want to open that website, type its name in the address bar and the suggestion list will show the required option. You can just type and hit enter.
