Tired of typing a URL or too lazy to use bookmarks?
Open your favourite browser (Google Chrome for sure) and type this URL once for all:

chrome://settings/searchEngines

Then get rid of all the useless URL you may have collected there and add the ones that you need and specify an alias for each one of them, so that the next time you want to go to GMail you simply do as follows:

hit ⌘-L , type gm and press enter.

Without moving your finger from the keyboard.

This is possible due to the real feature of aliases for search engines, like Bang word in DuckDuckGo. Here is an example of my aliases:

is Command (cmd) key on macs, ctrl key in other systems.
⌘-L
lets you jump straight to the address bar.
