Tip of the Week: Introducing Google Chrome’s New Actions Feature

Tip of the Week: Introducing Google Chrome’s New Actions Feature

If it is going to remain the most common Internet browser, Google Chrome always needs to have new features added to it to make it the preferable choice for most users. Recently, Chrome Actions was implemented, likely contributing greatly to that goal. Let’s look at what Chrome Actions are, and how they could prove useful.

What Are Chrome Actions?

With Chrome Actions, the Chrome browser has a bit more utility crammed into its address bar (also known as the “omnibar”). In addition to helping users navigate to a webpage or network location, or facilitating a Google search, the omnibar can now accept and carry out a select few basic commands.

For example, if a user types “incognito” into the omnibar, pressing Enter will open a new window in Incognito mode.

Right now, Google has implemented just a few Chrome Actions into their browser:

  • Clear Browsing Data - type ‘delete history’, ‘clear cache ‘ or ‘wipe cookies’
  • Manage Payment Methods - type ‘edit credit card’ or ‘update card info’
  • Open Incognito Window - type ‘launch incognito mode‘ or ‘incognito’
  • Manage Passwords - type ‘edit passwords’ or ‘update credentials’
  • Update Chrome - type ‘update browser’ or ‘update google chrome’
  • Translate Page - type ‘ translate this’ or ‘ translate this page’

With this starting list came the promise of more Chrome Actions coming with future updates to the browser.
