Copying content from some webpages can get very tricky sometimes. You have to use a mouse or a trackpad to select text and navigate at the same time. But no more with Caret Browsing. Caret Browsing is a term used for a feature in today’s browsers that lets you navigate around a webpage with arrow keys as if it was a Word document. Caret Browsing is not only useful but also a more natural way of reading for a few users. This post is all about enabling it on Chrome and Firefox browsers.
Turn on Caret Browsing on Firefox
The feature is readily available on Firefox. You can enable it by pressing F7 on your keyboard. F7 is the hotkey associated with Caret Browsing. It is going to be the same for Edge, Firefox and Chrome. Once enabled you can start using navigation keys to move the cursor around. You can also use other keys such as Shift to select text and Ctrl+C to copy it.
Caret Browsing on Firefox is smooth and works if there are a lot of images and tables on the page. To disable it, you can press F7 again.
Enable Caret Browsing on Chrome
Once the browser is launched, it too can be enabled or disabled using F7.
We hope this post helps you.
