It occurred to me today that I use a lot of shortcuts. In almost every program I use, I have an ingrained set of shortcuts for doing a million micro-actions. The ones I use in Chrome would probably be the most benefit for anyone else, so here they are:
- Inspect element —
- Open dev tools window, then open console:
- Reopen your last-closed tab —
- Move between tabs —
- Select the address bar —
- Duplicate current tab —
cmd+L(to select address bar),
cmd+returnto duplicate tab
Every year, usually around major Apple Keynotes, I promise to give Safari another try. But I never last more than a few hours. These shortcuts are so second nature now, and I use them so often, that it’s almost impossible to do without. I especially love love love #3 and #6.
What are your favourites?
Update — I just realized that I published almost this exact same list about 3 years ago! Seems I really do love shortcuts.
