    I have a couple of issues with the Chrome browser, and I hope you can suggest solutions.

    1 - No Tabs? I am accustomed to be able to switch easily between browser windows by simply clicking on a tab. With Chrome on the GTV, I have to click on the Menu (on the remote or onscreen), select Windows, then choose among open windows. Is there an easier way? Why doesn't Chrome for GTV have tabs like it does for Android?

    2 - No CTRL+? -Text on the big screen is sometimes hard to read. On Chrome for Windows, CTRL+ will increase the font size. On Chrome for Android, I can pinch to zoom. How can I zoom in with Chrome for Google TV?

    Thanks for any help!

    Which GTV do you have? My remote has a dedicated zoom button.

    For changing the size of text try:

    Ctrl + Up arrow (Zooms in)
    Ctrl + Down arrow (Zooms out)

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    To bring up browser history windows try: Menu + H

    (On my Revue the menu key is the key with 4 horizontal bars on the bottom row of the keyboard).

    For switching between webpages, hit menu, windows, open new window to go to a different web page. Then hit menu and windows to see open web pages, you can switch to whichever you want. Beware, very many open web pages simultaneously will cause Google TV to crash often. Also be sure to close all unused windows before beginning streaming.
