Chrome: Select Multiple Tabs
Here's a fantastic Google Chrome trick I just learned: you can Ctrl-Click to select multiple tabs at once. Then you can move them around or break them out into a new window as a group. Give it a try! Seriously great and simple trick that I never knew about (and probably should have, given that Ctrl-Click is so common for multi-select in plenty of other applications).

Don't hold out on me EE, what sort of simple tricks like this do you know about?

This is life-changing!  Can't believe I never tried it before either.

If you hit control + enter after typing something in the address bar, it'll automatically add www.<text>.com for you.

@Doug: I know, right?! :-) The hard part is going to be to train myself to start using it more and breaking old habits!

Ctrl + Shift + T whenever I close a tab and immediately regret my decision :)
Ctrl + Shift + N for new incognito tabs for testing
Not just for Chrome but I use Windows + Shift + Arrow keys to move between monitors all the time.

Ctrl + Shift + TCtrl + Shift + N, good ones!

The Windows + Shift + Arrow keys one doesn't seem to do anything for me though... Is that for virtual screens on Windows 10?

Sorry only left and right arrows to switch which monitor the current foreground application is displayed on.
