Hi.

Apologies if it's old news

(NOTE: "nothing*" meaning, nothing obvious we can tell now.)


----------------------------------------------------------
Tab Navigation
----------------------------------------------------------
ctrl + Tab = moves you forward through your current open tabs
(see also ctrl + PgDown)

ctrl + shift + Tab = moves you backward through your current
tabs (see also ctrl + PgUp)

ctrl + 1, ctrl + 2, ctrl + 3,...ctrl + 9 = switches to that
open tab

also ctrl + Tab)

ctrl + PgUp = switch to the previous tab in your window (see
also ctrl + shift + Tab)

----------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------
ctrl + + = enlarges the font size of the text on the page

ctrl + - = reduces the font size of the text on the page

ctrl + 0 = restores font size of text on the page to "default"


----------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------
Task Manager
----------------------------------------------------------
ctrl + ESC = opens the Chrome task manager

** (the next one is a little known Windows short cut but I
raise it up because it is so similar to Chrome).
ctrl + shift + ESC = opens the task manager for the operating
system (if you're running Vista - saves having to go to the
intermediate screen)


----------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------
ctrl+Enter = automatically add "www." before and ".com" after
what you've typed into the address bar

ctrl + "left arrow" = go to the previous word in the address
bar

----------------------------------------------------------
Link short cuts
----------------------------------------------------------
ctrl + "click on a link" = open that link in a new tab

shift + "click on a link" = open that link in a new window

drag a link to a tab = open that link in the tab

drag a link to the space between tabs = open a tab to that
link, between the two tabs
