Google is inserting one of the biggest feature updates to its Chrome browser called Chrome Actions. Available in the Chrome v87 soon to everyone, Google will let users search for any of the browser settings right through the address bar! It works by typing the related phrases in the search bar to get the settings options as results.
Using Chrome Search to Find Browser Settings
Chrome browser has come a long way from just an internet browsing tool to be password manager and automatic data filler. As Google is making it more resourceful than ever, options to manage them all has been becoming difficult too. Though it beefed all the settings in a dedicated section accessible from the top right corner option, it’s still hard.
While setting the universal search in settings has soothed some users, they still need to get into the options first. Removing that one-step hassle, Google is introducing Chrome Actions in Chrome’s latest version 87 to let users search the desired settings right from their address bar!
This eliminates tapping into the settings option first, as users can directly search for what they wanted from Chrome’s search bar. This needs users to type in the relevant phrases like ‘delete history’ to clear the browsing data at once. There are hundreds of such shortcut commands listed by Google to be able to use when rolled out.
Some popular ones include;
- Type ‘Cookies’ to clear the cookies etc.
- Type ‘delete history,’ ‘clear cache‘ or ‘wipe cookies’ to Clear Browsing Data.
- Type ‘edit passwords’ or ‘update credentials’ to Manage Passwords.
- Type ‘update browser’ or ‘update google chrome’ to Update Chrome.
- Type ‘launch incognito mode‘ or ‘incognito’ to Open Incognito Window.
- Type ‘edit credit card’ or ‘update card info’ to Manage Payment Methods.
While it’s important to run on the latest version of the browser v87, this feature shows up eventually as it’s still rolling out to everyone gradually.
