How to be faster with Safari, Firefox, and Chrome

1. Before you type a URL into Safari, Firefox, or Chrome you have to click in the right place, right? Wrong. You can jump to the address bar by pressing ⌘-L on your keyboard, regardless of where your cursor is when you press it. Whatever is in the address bar will become highlighted, and you can type right over it. No need to press Delete to wipe out what’s there– just type right over it.

2. Now that you’re typing a URL, watch the address bar as it may figure out what you’re typing, and fill in the rest for you. When you see the address spelled out for you just hit Return (or Enter) on the keyboard. You don’t have to type all the way to the end. Websites you go to often will only require a couple of letters from you. For example, when I type “o” in Safari, Firefox, or Chrome I’ll see “oneminutemacman.com” as a suggestion. After only one letter! All I have to do from there is press Return or Enter.
