Google Chrome shortcuts

If you are like me who has been using Google Chrome, you would appreciate these shortcuts. I learned these when I noticed a line on the browser's new tab page suggesting Ctrl + N and the likes. For some browser actions, the mouse click seem quicker, but all in all, the shortcuts are faster and cool. See for yourself.
