With new shortcuts, Google is making it simpler for users to search for tabs, bookmarks, and the history from the address bar. You can now begin your website search by typing @tabs, @bookmarks, or @history.
Most likely the most useful feature is tab search. Chrome already provides tab search, but to access the search bar, you must either use the shortcut Shift + Cmd (Ctrl) + A or click on the bottom arrow icon. It’s easier to do when you mention @tab and quickly search for an open tab in the address bar.
If you try to open a duplicate tab, the address bar will show you that you already have that tab open, and you can switch to it by clicking the “Switch” option.
You had to open the bookmark manager via the bookmark menu in order to search your bookmarks. You can search across shortcuts with the new @bookmark shortcut. The new @history shortcut can also be used in a similar manner.
Arc and SigmaOS, two of the most recent browsers, allow users to keep as many tabs open in the background as they like. The search bar or keyboard shortcuts make it easy for users to quickly access these tabs. Through these new shortcuts, Chrome provides similar access to bookmarks, history, and tabs.
