About Chrome Browser

In Google Chrome, you can get anywhere on the Web with one box. The address bar that sits at the top of the normal Google Chrome window simplifies your Internet experience by doubling as a search box. You can also use it to bookmark websites and stay aware about the security of a website.

Search

Watch a video on how to use the address bar.

Type your search query in the address bar, and it automatically suggests related queries and popular websites, based on your input. (Google Suggest is the default service that provides auto-suggestions unless your default search engine uses an alternate service.)

Autosuggestions

You can use common search booleans in the address bar. Pick up other tips on doing quick searches.

Visit a webpage

If you know the specific web address you’re trying to access, type it directly in the address bar. Press Enter on the keyboard or click the arrow icon to load the webpage. As you type, Google Chrome also automatically searches your browsing history and shows you the number of matches at the bottom of its drop-down menu.

It may be hard to stop a webpage from loading because of the browser’s speediness. When loading a webpage, the arrow icon at the end of the address bar turns into an ‘x.’ Click the icon to stop the loading process.

You can copy a URL, right-click the address bar, and select Paste and go to quickly open the website.

Create a bookmark

If you come across an interesting webpage that you’d like to access again in the future, click the star icon star icon on the browser toolbar to create a bookmark. A bubble confirming the addition of the bookmark appears.

Website security

If Google Chrome detects that the website you’re trying to access will securely transmit data using SSL, you’ll see the following:

  • The background color of the address bar changes to gold.
  • The ‘https’ in the URL appears in green for websites with SSL-secured connections established.
  • A lock icon lock icon appears at the end of the address bar.

If a SSL-secured connection cannot be established, then you’ll see an alert icon alert icon at the end of the address bar, among other possible browser warnings. You can click the icon to open the ‘Security information’ dialog box and see more information.
