Browse the internet more time efficiently
The internet has become an integral part of our daily lives, providing us with access to a vast amount of information and resources. However, with so much information available, it can be easy to get overwhelmed and waste valuable time trying to find what we need. To help you make the most of your internet time, here are some tips for efficient internet surfing:
Use a browser extension to block distracting websites
There are many browser extensions available that allow you to block distracting websites, such as social media or news sites, during specific hours of the day. This can help you to stay focused on your tasks and avoid wasting time on sites that you know distract you.
The another helpful extension is called "I still don't care about cookies", which automatically accept all cookies popups. It can save a lot of time.
Use bookmarks and browser history to quickly access frequently visited sites
Instead of typing out the URL or searching for a site every time you want to visit it, save it as a bookmark or use your browser history to quickly access it. This can save you valuable time and make it easier to quickly find the information you need.
It's also helpful to speed up your browser by saving memory and CPU usage. You can achieve this by bookmarking important tabs and closing unused ones instead of keeping them open.
Use keyboard shortcuts to navigate faster
Most browsers have built-in keyboard shortcuts that allow you to quickly navigate through pages and tabs, as well as perform common tasks such as refreshing a page or opening a new tab. Learning these shortcuts can help you to navigate the web more quickly and efficiently. All shortcuts are available here, but here are few examples:
|Open a new window||Ctrl + n|
|Open a new window in Incognito mode||Ctrl + Shift + n|
|Open a new tab, and jump to it||Ctrl + t|
|Reopen previously closed tabs in the order they were closed||Ctrl + Shift + t|
|Jump to the next open tab||Ctrl + Tab or Ctrl + PgDn|
|Jump to the previous open tab||Ctrl + Shift + Tab or Ctrl + PgUp|
|Jump to a specific tab||Ctrl + 1 through Ctrl + 8|
Use a search engine to find specific information
Instead of browsing through multiple sites or pages to find what you're looking for, use a search engine to quickly find the information you need. This can save you time and help you to find the most relevant information for your query.
Personally I recommend to use the Google with a few keywords first, then specify them if needed.
Use a note-taking app to save important information
When you come across information that you want to save for later, use a note-taking app such as Evernote or Google Keep to save it. This can help you to keep track of important information and make it easy to find later on.
Personally I recommend to use the Google Keep. It's free and available on all platforms.
By following these tips, you can make the most of your internet time and stay focused on what you need to accomplish. Remember to be mindful of the time you spend online, and take breaks when you find yourself getting distracted.
