Ctrl Left Click, Middle Click – Open a link in a background tab. Ctrl F5 – Reload and skip the cache, re-downloading the entire website.

Ctrl G, F3 – Find the next match of the searched text on the page.
Ctrl F, F3 – Open the in-page search box to search on the current page. Ctrl Shift Del – Open the Clear Browsing History window.
