Google’s Chrome for Android provides a powerful browsing experience out of the box — but if you know where to look, you can unlock extra features that’ll make it even better.
Your mobile browser is your gateway to the web, after all — and whether you’re doing important work-related research or, ahem, important work-related procrastination, you want to be as efficient as possible. These four settings are all about enhancing your productivity and eliminating annoyances that slow you down.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s do this:
1. Give your address bar a time-saving trick
You probably already know you can use Chrome for Android’s address bar to get instant answers on all sorts of things, ranging from equations to general knowledge. (If you didn’t already know that, try it out: Type “34*67” or “What is the capital to Canada” into the bar at the top of your browser. The answers will appear immediately, and you’ll never even have to hit enter.)
