This is great if you've always got lots of Google Chrome tabs open.

Similarly if you know you've saved a great recipe to bookmarks but don't want to manually find it, you could search for something like @boomarks pie.

And the same is true for history: you can quickly revisit a page that you've already landed on.

"Sometimes, finding the tab or bookmark you’re looking for in Chrome can be tough," Google explained.

"Good news: The Chrome address bar on desktop just got an upgrade that can help.

"Now you can directly search through your Chrome tabs, bookmarks and history right from the address bar."

To use the new features, make sure you're updated to the latest version of Google Chrome.
