comment What is `--` called?
I encounter regularity the cd -- and cd - phenomena. while cd -- means essentially just cd and thus change into your $HOME, cd - means put your self into previous directory. This becomes handy when you wanted to cd .. but as with german keyboard layout I mix it often up with cd --. cd - will then put you back. :D

Just to note that with with ZSH you can decouple a command & later from shell with disown which then works as a post-nohup.

comment Is it possible to find out the hosts in the known_hosts file?
Don't be scared when there is no output at all, but try not the full qualified hostname but the hostname instead.

comment Installing Chrome on Linux without needing to be root
+1 for the --no-sandbox command line option, as the sandbox will need 4755 and must be owned by root.

comment How to test for possible conflicts while using alias in bashrc?
I guess it depends on the shell you use: type which which is a shell builtin I am using the zsh.

Same does work with which, but I don't now if both (type,which) shell builtins are the same.
