  1. 1
    First of all, we open up Google Chrome on the Mac.

    In this video, the VisiHow web site will be opened.
    Let's say that we want to read four of the new articles. We do not want to click on each of them and go back and forth each time we want to read all of the four of these new articles.

  3. 3
    What we can do is we can press "command" and click on each article.
    That will open each one of these into a new browser tab. We'll see it at the top.

    Now, let's say we want to go immediately to the last article.
    We press the "command" and "shift" keys. That will take us directly to the article in a new browser tab.

    We can still go back to see all of the opened articles.
    The new browser tab will be there.

  6. 6
    As we are browsing, we may have the moment when we accidentally start closing tabs; and we decide then that we need one of the tabs that we have just closed.
    A very useful shortcut for that is to reopen the last browser tab. We can actually reopen ten of the last browser tabs in Google Chrome. We do that by pressing "command", "shift", and "T". That combination will reopen the tabs that we have closed.

    We may end up when we have a lot of tabs on the screen, and we would want to close most of them.
    One of the useful features is to right-click a tab.

    We move the mouse to "Close Tabs to the Right" and click it.
    This will, basically, close all of the tabs to the right.

  9. 9
    There are also "Close Other Tabs" in this menu.
    This closes all of the tabs except the viewed one. This is a very useful feature for staying organized.

    To switch between the tabs, we press the "option", the "command", and the right and left arrow keys.
    We will move between the tabs that we have open.

    We can also press the "command" and the number keys, 1 through 9, to move to a specific tab.
    Let's say we want to move to the third tab. We press the "command" and "3" keys to be taken there.

    Once we've been browsing in a tab, we can go back to the last tab by pressing the "delete" key.

    If we click and hold the back button, Google Chrome will show us our history on the particular tab.

    It is also useful to delete a particular item in our browsing history.
    We click the search bar, scroll to the particular item, and then we press "fn", "shift", and "delete". This will delete particular web pages from our browsing history.

    Another mode to keep things private and not to record our browsing history is to press "command", "shift", and "N" to open up the incognito window.
    It is important to read the announcement on this window. Basically, it just says, "Pages you view in incognito tabs won't stick around in your browser's history, cookie store, or search history after you've closed all of your incognito tabs. Any files you download or bookmarks you create will be kept." Google Chrome also goes on to say, "Going incognito doesn't hide your Internet browsing from your employer, your internet service provider, or the websites you visit."

    We can press "command", "shift", and "W" to close that window when we have finished working with the incognito mode.

    Now, to find a particular item on a page, we press "command" and "F".
    This will bring up the find function. For example, we can find out how many times "snapseed" appear in the article.

    We can type in "snapseed" into the new search box.
    The find tool shows that "snapseed" is mentioned 9 times in the article in the example.

    If we go past the match, and we want to get back, we press "command", "shift", and "G".
