Paste copied text without formatting in Google Chrome
If only there was a solution -- like some sort of hotkey combo that would automatically strip the formatting for you.
The Google Chrome team feels your pain, and they've responded. Chrome can now do exactly that. Instead of using Ctrl+V to paste, press Ctrl+Shift+V to insert your text without retaining the original formatting. Mac users have to perform the slightly more acrobatic Command+Shift+Option+V.
The new paste feature is yet another small-but-welcome addition to Chrome, and one that I'm sure I'll use frequently.
