Go Incognito – Secret Mode

Incognito is the secret or private mode of browsing. In this way, Google doesn’t record your browsing history, data, download history, or anything you search. So whatever cookies are stored during the incognito mode will automatically delete when you close the browser.

You can launch incognito by pressing Ctrl + Sift + N, or go to Setting > New Incognito Window. One of the practical use for this mode is to log in to the same site using two accounts.

Use Omnibox

The URL address bar where the link of any website appears is called Omnibox. However, the URL address bar in the Chrome browser is not only to enter your URL, you can also type the keyword you want to search and press enter, this will perform a Google search.

Additionally, you can perform calculations or conversions directly in the Omnibox.
