When you close a browser tab prematurely, whether it’s by accident or, unbeknownst to you, you’re going to need it again moments later, it’s no fun digging through your history to get it back. That’s why Control/Command+Shift+T was invented. It resurrects your fallen tabs from the graveyard of your browser history.
Just to be clear, that’s Control+Shift+T on Windows and Command+Shift+T on Mac OS X. It doesn’t work on every browser (like Safari, which can sort of do it with Command+Z) but it’s present in most and infinitely helpful.

You’re browsing the web, going to all the sites you love, and you’re coming down with hand cramps from constantly going back to the mouse just to go back to the address bar so you can type in your next destination. These keyboard shortcuts can save you the trouble.

Making the trip up to your browser’s address bar directly from the keyboard is very easy, but it does vary from browser to browser. Here’s a breakdown:

Firefox: Control/Command + L
Chrome/Safari/WebKit: Control/Command + L
Internet Explorer: Alt + D
Opera: Control/Command + L

Here’s an added bonus. If your browser has a separate search box

Firefox: Control/Command + K
Safari: Command + Option + F
Internet Explorer: Control + E
Opera: Control/Command + E
