Google Chrome Shortcuts, Monitoring Resources, and the Home Button
4. Create an application shortcut to any web page.
With Chrome, you can create a shortcut to any web page on your desktop and in your Start menu, just as if it was a shortcut to any application. To do this, click on the Wrench icon, select "Tools," and choose "Create application shortcuts." A dialog box will appear asking you where to save it (Desktop, Start menu or Quick Launch). Select your preferred location and click "Create."
5. Monitor resources used by a web page.
With Google Chrome, it’s very easy to monitor the resources used by any web page. Just right-click anywhere inside a web page, choose "Inspect element" and click on the "Resources" tab. Don’t see anything there yet? Well, just reload the web page. It will list all the resources used in the web page such as images and scripts.
6. Bring back that Home button.
By default, Google Chrome doesn’t display the home button on its toolbar. However, you can bring it back in there by clicking on the Wrench icon, then selecting "Options," navigating to the "Basics" tab and checking the "Show Home button on the toolbar" box.
