Firefox S+RightClickTake a second to hold down the “S” key and right-click on any image on the web. Whoa, right?

The results vary by browser:

  • Chrome: This immediately initiates a reverse image search (i.e., searches Google for that image) in a new tab, which can come in pretty handy. It’s faster than right-clicking on an image and selecting the search option. (I found this in an infographic about cool browser shortcuts over at Eukhost, but then found that it doesn’t work the same in other browsers.)
  • Firefox: Opens the set image as desktop background window(as shown in the image above at left).

Firefox 32 right clickI’ve been using Firefox 32 all day and it’s just now that I noticed some new buttons at the top of the right-click popup menu: back, forward, reload & bookmark. That reload one’s going to come in handy since I hate how much they shrunk the one up in the toolbar.

In Chrome, press CTRL-SHIFT-DELETE and you’ll be taken directly to the Clear browsing data screen for easy access to clearing your cache and other memories.

Firefox LogoTry these:

  • Type a keyword into Firefox’s URL bar then press CTRL-Enter. You’ll end up @ http://www.keyword.com.
  • Type a keyword into Firefox’s URL bar then press SHIFT-Enter. You’ll end up @ http://www.keyword.net.
  • Type a keyword into Firefox’s URL bar then press CTRL-SHIFT-Enter. You’ll end up @ http://www.keyword.org.

With testing, I’ve found that the first works in Chrome, but the other two don’t.

This tip works in IE, Chrome & Firefox. (I don’t have Safari so would someone be willing to confirm if it works there?)

The quickest way to access you browser’s Download Manger is CTRL-J. This is much faster than hunting around for the right icon or menu item, especially if you’re constantly switching browsers.
