Taking Ctrl: Reopen a tab in Chrome

The Problem

We’ve all been there.
That tab that we had open ten minutes ago has just disappeared!
Luckily, theres a solution for that.

The Solution

Pressing Ctrl + Shift + T (Command + Shift + T on a mac) will reopen crashed or closed Chrome tabs.
You can repeat this shortcut until it runs out of tabs and closed windows to restore from your history.

Taking Ctrl: Reopen Closed Tabs

The Problem

You’ve closed some tabs in your browser, but you want them back. How can you do this quickly?

The Solution

The following works for Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.

Windows: Ctrl+Shift+T

Mac: Command+Shift+T

The Result

If you key that shortcut once, it’ll bring up the last tab you closed. Hit it again, and it’ll bring up the one before that. And so on.
