3. Bookmark entire pages at a time

Sometimes we often visit a website or a web page and wish for an option which makes it easily accessible without a long procedure of searching and navigating to that particular page.  Chrome has got a solution this problem with a feature called Bookmark where you can bookmark that single page or the entire pages that are open in all the tabs.

In order to bookmark a page click on the star icon in the URL and save it or press Ctrl-D.

To bookmark all the tabs press Ctrl-Shift-D.

Or you can just click on the Bookmark option in the customize and control Google Chrome option menu.


4. Customize the look of Tabs

Install Earth View extension or Awesome New Tab extensions which are free. The Earth View extension displays a new image every time with the satellite images using Google Earth. The Awesome New Tab runs even offline and also provides you with many widgets and also allows you to resize the apps. Visit Chrome Web Store to find a variety of themes available in its store.
