There used to be a time when Microsoft Internet Explorer ruled our webs, and was a go-to place for all web browsers. However, with Google Chrome, everything changed and scaled up a class. It has been three years and Chrome has been maintaining its position as the best and the most used web browser, around the world.
But, there is a lot more to Chrome than you know. Yes, there are tons of quirky and really cool features you probably had no idea about, till now. Let’s take a look:
Tilt Your Chrome Page:
Write ’tilt’ and ‘do a barrel now’ on Google Search Box, see the results. Isn’t that pretty amazing? The browser will literally, automatically TILT.
Instead of going to the menu and searching for the calculator or buzzing your mind for equations, you can use Chrome to solve all your mathematical woes. All you have to do is go to your address bar and write the calculative material.
Our Favourite – Dinosaur Game:
You must have faced the out-of-internet worries while in middle of something, quite a lot of times. But, Chrome lets you kill that boredom with cute little dinosaur surviving through the hurdles.
Google Chrome Unit Converter:
Chrome search bar also works as a unit converter too. Just type the unit you want to convert, and the answer will instantly pop up in the address bar.
Paste, Search, and GO!
Chrome also offers you time-saving paste feature. If you are working on multiple tabs at once and want to stick with a single URL, you will get it without even searching. Just right click and select “Paste and Search”. If you want to keep the URL there, select the “Paste and Go” option.
100 Tabs At Once:
Google allows you to open whooping 100 tabs at once. However, instead of showing the number of tabs, it replaces them with a smiley face. On the other hand, Google’s arch-rival Mozilla Firefox can open 99 tabs only. Just one needed for that glorious win.
Chrome Also Has A Notepad:
Want to note something in a hurry? No need to rush for pen and paper or desktop Wordpad, Chrome has it covered for you. Simply type this; data:text/html, <html contenteditable> ; and a Notepad will pop up for your ease.
Mp3 And Movie On Chrome Browser:
You can also play Mp3 file and a movie on Chrome. Just drag the file to the browser and it will be played automatically.
Task Manager In Chrome:

Translate Whole Page Into Emoji:
Chrome converted a fun April Fool’s Day prank into a completely new feature. The searching giant converted an entire page into emoji.
