Awesome Browser Tricks Everyone Should Know

The majority of us put Internet browsers to use on a daily basis. They are a way for us to see and discover everything the world wide web has to offer.

Due to the amount of time we spend on our browsers, it can be assumed you’re an Internet pro. However, not very many of us are. There is always more browser tricks for you to learn to enhance your skills.

Here are some awesome browser tricks to help you surf like a pro:

1) Dead Webpages

While searching online, you may stumble across some sites which are no longer online. This happens for various reasons. Paste the dead link into archive.org if you have this problem. Many times they have old versions of sites available to view.

2) Tab Restore

Everyone has accidentally closed a tab, and many times you may not remember what site you were on. This can be frustrating, and in the past, you would have had to go through your browser’s history to find and reload it. This is no longer the case with most browsers who offer “Recently Closed Tabs” list.

A faster way than going through history, press ctrl + shift + T and your tab will reload.

3) Use Your Browser as a Notepad

We all have been in need of paper and pen, but there is none to be found.

Bookmark this code to use the browser window for a notepad:

data:text/html, <html contenteditable>

Simply enter this code into your browser address next time you’re in need.

Be sure to copy any notes taken before closing any windows, these are not able to be saved.

4) Google’s Reverse Image Search

You may have an image saved someplace on your PC, but have no memory of where it came from. You can find out with Google’s reverse image search. Go to images.google.com and either drag and drop the image you have saved or click the camera icon.

5) Clearing Cache

A cache is a temporary storage of such things as images and web pages, with a purpose of reducing lag, bandwidth, and server load. There are times that sites are able to be loaded from the cache. However, a cache can end up corrupted. When this happens, you can simply clear and reload the proper version of the cache. To do so press ctrl + shift + R. 

6) URL Highlight Browser Tricks

Oftentimes, keyboard shortcuts are quicker to use than a mouse. Everyone knows the popular ones, such as cut and copy, but try this awesome one.

Highlight the current website URL by pressing ctrl + L. Easily share your links with friends or co-workers.

After learning these neat tricks, you can take to your browser like a pro. Make sure to also check out how to configure and set up your Microsoft 10 browser.
