I just recently switched from Windows and *nix to OS X, and I miss being able to hit F6 to go straight to my Address Bar. What's the OS X equivalent?


To switch quickly to the Address Bar use:

  • Mac/OS X: +L
  • Win/Linux: Ctrl+L
  • IIRC cmd+L works also in Safari, Firefox and Opera; and ctrl+L does the same magic in Windows' versions of the browsers — though not in the same manner in IE: it opens up an Open URL dialog. – Jari Keinänen Apr 9 '11 at 11:13

    ⌘+L doesn't work for me in Chrome 61 for Mac/OS X. Only works in Firefox – OMA Oct 25 '17 at 14:08
  • How do you switch back to the main pane? – Dan Nissenbaum Jan 26 '18 at 2:48
  • @DanNissenbaum, by pressing a 'Tab' key – Ilya Kolesnikov Oct 24 '18 at 8:59
