Paste as plain text in Google Chrome – The most useful hidden feature

Background: you are writing blog post or rich text email in a web browser and you want to include text from other web page. The normal copy-paste functionality copies the styles of the source material, usually messing up your blog post or message.

It doesn’t have to be so.

In Google Chrome web browser, you have Paste as plain text functionality. Just hit CTRL+SHIFT+V for paste as plain text. You don’t need no longer recycle all text through Notepad or other plain text editor.

This functionality is not available through menus, only through this keyboard shortcut.
