Keyboard shortcut to quickly jump to the URL address field in Firefox…

Is there a keyboard shortcut to take your cursor into the URL bar for Chrome?

I want to keep my fingers on the home-row. Is there a short cut that would take my cursor into the URL/Query input area, as opposed to having to click in it?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I'm not sure this should be flagged as an exact duplicate if asked about different browsers. There is no set rule that browsers should have the same keyboard shortcuts. – Scott Apr 5 '11 at 4:29

Ctrl + L or Alt + D. Check out more in Keyboard and mouse shortcuts.

+1, they work in pretty much every program that has an address bar. – grawity Mar 14 '11 at 19:47

F6 highlights the URL bar. I'm not sure if there is any shortcut for moving the actual cursor to the URL bar, though.

I suspect that that by ‘cursor’, the OA meant caret. – Synetech Mar 14 '11 at 18:07
