If you’re like me, trying to find one Chrome tab among dozens The number of open sites is almost impossible. I end up doing a Google search for the site I was looking for, and Then Adding a duplicate tab to always grow hemorrhoid. Searching through bookmarks and your history isn’t perfect, either—bOthers require you to visit their respective pages first, then search For whatever you like.

Google, of course, is no stranger to search. The company started as a search engine, after all, so it knows a thing or two about finding things. So, it should come as no surprise that Google has found a better way to find tabs, bookmarks, and history in Chrome, creating shortcuts to find each.

As reported by 9to5GoogleGoogle has added this useful new search feature to version 108 of Chrome. Instead of searching your tabs, bookmarks, and browsing history by hand, use the ampersand (@). You can use @+relevant queries to quickly find what you’re looking for.

To get started, click Chrome’s address bar, then type @tabs, @bookmarks, or @history. Now, press the space bar, or click the “Search tab,” “Search bookmarks,” or “Search history” bullet that appears. Then Start typing what you’re looking for.

For example, jumping into @tabs, I can type “inbox” to find my open Gmail tab (surprisingly Gmail doesn’t work). With @Bookmarks, I can type in “lifehacker” to find any of our sites I’ve saved to my bookmarks over the years. Finally, @history lets me find a site I was using for a previous article, like petapixel post I refer My article on how point-and-shoot cameras are making a comeback,

It’s a small but useful change that should make Chrome even easier to navigate. Looks like version 108 is all about adding these kinds of helpful updates. Last week, I highlighted a new “Energy Sassertfeature that lets you save battery life when using Chrome on a laptop. Now you can save battery And time, so you can get more done (or squeeze an extra YouTube video into your lunch break).
