Convenient Shortcuts To Improve Your Browsing

Do you want to make your browsing life easier? There are some shortcuts that can do that. I find these shortcuts convenient and am happily using them. These shortcuts work in most browsers, especially Firefox. I don’t know whether these shortcuts work on MAC, but it certainly works on Windows. Here are the shortcuts.


I find this feature useful when you meet a page with many interesting links and want to open each in a tab. Middle-clicking the links will open them in a new tab. Then, I can read an article while the others load in other tabs.

Ctrl + Shift + T

Oh no! You’ve accidentally closed a tab! And now you have to type in the long address again? No, you don’t have you. You just have to hit Ctrl + Shift + T, and your accidentally closed tab will be opened again.

Alt + Enter

You’ve entered an address, “” You want to open another page in a new tab. Simply type, “http://www.(thesiteyouwishtovisit).com” and hit Alt + Enter. The address will be opened in a new window.

These are the shortcuts I find convenient so far. I will update this post as soon as I find out more shortcuts I’d to share.

I hope you would find these shortcuts convenient and will make your browsing easier and more convenient :) .

    Replace CTRL with COMMAND and they work on Mac. Great post!

    The shortcuts should be universal, assuming the keys are labeled the same way (I use Firefox on Linux and FreeBSD and they work). Ctrl+Shift+Enter goes to .org and Shift+Enter goes to .net. They are useful along with Ctrl+Enter. :)

    I know some of the shortcuts but the rest I’ve been using the mouse like going for undo closed tab. Most of the time I prefer working with shortcut keys since its faster so I’ll try this new shortcut as well.
