To add the Home button in Chrome you will just need to tap on the Settings button that’s located in the top-right corner, select Preferences and check the box that’s near the “Show Home button in the toolbar.”

Pin Tab 

You have the ability to “Pin” tabs in Chrome, which will minimize the tab to display only the icon. This is great, especially when you have too many tabs open and you want to leave a bit more space for multitasking.

Creating Desktop Shortcuts For Your Favorite Web Pages

Some people want to have desktop shortcuts of their favorite web pages. Well, Google Chrome allows you to do this by heading to your favorite web page, click on the Settings button, select Tools and choose “Create application shortcuts.”

Reopening Recently Closed Tab

Sometimes it happens to close a tab by mistake, which is quite annoying. Well, don’t worry because on Google Chrome you will just need to press CTRL+Shift+T in order to reopen the closed tab. You can also right click on the title-bar and select “Reopen closed tab.”
