3. Focus existing tabs on open: Typing a URL of an existing tab into the address bar will jump to the already opened tab instead of loading again the web page — This feature works in Windows, Linux and Mac as well.

Note: You can always get to the experimental features page by typing in the address bar: Chrome://flags. To turn ON a new feature simply, click the Enable link and then restart the browser.
