Google keeps adding useful new features to the Chrome browser and this is one of the reasons why it’s the number one internet browser. The Chrome developer team has recently added a new search interface called Commander to display users all the browser features that match the letters they’ve typed. When enabled, the new search interface appears on top.

This isn’t entirely new. Vivaldi has a similar feature called quick commands interface and does the exact same thing, though the UI looks slightly different.

  3. In the search box, type Commander
  4. Select Enabled, and then restart the browser
