Navigating between tabs in web browsers

Tabbed browsing is a new feature of latest web browsers and is termed as use of web browsers which allow multiple tabs (sub-windows) to be opened within the same browser window, each tab displaying a web-page.

All popular web browsers such as Internet Explorer (since version 7), Mozilla Firefox (since 2001), Safari (since 2003), Google Chrome (since 2008) and Opera (since 2000) supports tabbed browsing.

Following are Key Board Shortcut keys for Navigating between Tabs in Web Browsers:

Short Cut Key Action
Ctrl + t opens a new tab.
Ctrl + w closes current tab.
Ctrl + Tab to move forward between tabs.
Ctrl + Shift + Tab to move backward between tabs.
Ctrl + Click on any link will open linked page in new Tab.
(for Opera, use Shift+Click, linked page comes to front)
Ctrl + Shift + Click on any link will open linked page in new Tab, and bring to front.
In Opera linked page will open in background.
Ctrl+{tab number} to move onto a specific tab.
Ex: Ctrl + 3, control will move to third tab.
Ctrl + 1 control will move to first tab.
Where as in Safari and Opera, Ctrl + {Tab number} will open stored bookmarks in the order.
Ctrl+Tab for moving between tabs, works differently in Opera. Opera shows snapshot list of all titles in all tabs, user needs to click on title of tab.

Internet Explorer provides another short cut to move between tabs. Short key Ctrl+Q helps to view thumb images of all tabs present in a Browser window, and a click on any thumb image will give focus to that tab. In IE terminolgy this feature is named as ‘Quick Tabs’.

Simplify search in Gmail

gmaillogo
Like how we search on Google for information, you can even search in your Gmail account for email messages.

Google search tips are provided in one of my earlier posts.

Following are some search tips for Gmail messages.

Searching based on E-Mail Headers:

a) use to:{emailid} or to:{contactname} for searching emails that you sent for a specific person.
Ex: to:jacob@gmail.com or to:chetan
b) use from:{emailid} or from:{contactname} for searching emails that are from a specific person.
Ex: from:sjoe@yahoo.com or from:San
c) use subject:{text} for searching emails which has subject
Ex: subject:resume
will list out all emails which have subject resume.
Similarly you can search for bcc: or cc:

Searching for Attachments:

a) use has:attachment , to search all email messages which have attachments attached to them.
b) use filename:doc , to search for email messages with attachments and the attachment file name contains doc.
c) you can combine both searches.
Ex: has:attachment filename:pdf

Searching based on Date:

Searching based on date requires you to put date format in yyyy/mm/dd
a) after:2009/02/09 will search for all emails after 09 Feb 2009, but not on the date.
b) before:2009/02/09 will search for all emails that came before 09 Feb 2009, but not on the date.

Boolean operators can also be used while searching in Gmail.
Ex: to:Dany subject:(stocks|news)
above search query searches for emails which are sent to Dany and with subject messages either stocks or news.

Gmail searching by default excludes Trash and Spam messages, if you want to include these folders, use in:anywhere with your search query.
Ex: from:Dany in:anywhere
