Important Parts of the Chrome Browser

Last Update: May 29, 2017

A browser is an important part of your online strategy, so it is important to know the most important features of it. There are several browsers on the market but the information here is specifically for the Google Chrome browser.

Tab: the tab is on the top of your Google browser and the new tab button is next to the last tab on the right.

Navigation buttons: back, forward, refresh are to the top left.

The Search box or address(URL) bar: (see illustration) it is more than that. Use it as a calculator, ask a "How" question or any question. Chances are you'll get an answer 99% of the time. It is a versatile bar.

The three dots: to "Customize and Control Google Chrome" Click on it to view a menu list of which the most important ones are: "New Tab:" to view a new Google search page. "New window:" to display a page that is separate from other pages. "History:" to find an URL you visited recently or last week. "More Tools > Save page as:" to save the current page to your storage device.

The bookmark bar allows you to sync your most important bookmarks. The folder next to the last bookmark icon contains more bookmarks that cannot fit on the bar. Your bookmarks will display when you go online anywhere in the world and irrespective of the medium you are using.

Extensions add functionality to your Chrome browser. Some extensions may not work as advertised so you can disable or remove them.

To disable or delete an extension, click on the three dots > More Tools > Extension then turn off the last extension installed before experiencing issues with Chrome.

One interesting extension you might want to try is "Similar Site." Enter your or any website URL, and it will display sites similar to the one entered if found. In my case, it reported no match found, but still it presented sites related to some of my blogs.

Thanks Trevor for this instructive post. I seldom use Chrome. Most of the time I use SlimBrowser or Firefox.
