Who really cares about seeing the "/href#2334222323/client=android" bullshit at the end of a webpage address? Or if I MUST see that garbage string, let me click a button to extend it, but I guarantee you it will be the most underutilized button on the browser. Nobody cares. Move the bookmarks and all menus up there, make the tabs thin, and give me the rest of the window for the webpage, which is the reason I opened your stupid browser to begin with!

Why move the bookmarks up there? there isn't nearly enough space for them, putting them in the same row as the address bar would just be too much, specially when....

...the extension icons are on the same row with the address bar, and the more of those you have, the smaller your bar gets.

Also, what are these "all menus" that you are referring to? every menu is already the wrench, I have no idea which other "menus" you are talking about :lol

What a nice upgrade. It feels faster, simpler, sleeker, and all around a better experience. Did I mention it feels faster? :lol

I've been trying to get all of my friends, fellow students, family members, and whoever to pick up on chrome but most of them either have macs (and claim Safari is better) or love them some internet explorer/firefox. People are just missssing out.

Actually, I want the Dev or Beta build. But I'm on OS X, and I understand it doesn't have acceleration yet. But once the 7 beta/dev has all the stuff in place, I switch again. I've switched Chrome versions more than any other browser. And all my extensions have never once stopped working. Unlike some other browser I know. I'm looking at YOU, Firefox.

Canaries don't work on OS X.

I've built up some goodwill with my parents from switching them to Gmail (for the free calls), so sometime soon I'll make a coordinated assault to get them to switch to Chrome from IE8. :)

I wonder if Google sells Chrome shirts... Edit- They do!

Then maybe I'll try getting them into RSS and Google Reader. But that has to come gradually.

GR is a bit much for me. I'm gone a week and there is just a toooon of reading for me to do. As fun as it is to browse on a lazy Saturday, sometimes its a little overwhelming. Maybe I should reduce my sources but I want the full picture :lol

Yeah, I'd tell them to keep only a few sources at first. Teaching them to add sources though will probably be hard. :lol

Yeah unfortunately it's not that great. :/ Even still!

It doesn't work for the PortableApps version. However, for all my other Chrome installs I've had no problems.

I've been doing it all day, since downloading it from the site just downloaded the whole thing, not an update, and it's been saying 5.0 is up to date. I had the grand idea of replacing the one I downloaded with my current one, and that worked. I thought it wouldn't since it wasn't just an update file.

I feel dumb.

Mine worked once.

ONCE.

It downloaded, installed, and asked me to restart.

The rest of the time it says 'Server not available'. But it says this AFTER it downloads the DMG and mounts it. I can tell because I have Hardware Growler. How can it crash at the server part when it's already done downloading?

I always end up downloading it from Google.

Just use Sparkle already, guys!

What would you do with the extra space if you cut the address bar in half? Just curious what you'd rather have there instead of the URL bar.

I have no idea why but Safari basically decided to quit working on all my computers.

Possibly has something to do with my ancient router but anyway... I love Chrome it's great. Would like some tweaks here and there but kudos Chrone Team!

I love you. Link me ASAP. I really cannot understand why Google has 'inspect element' instead of a properties button (or both). So infuriating to try and find an images url and pixel size without opening it up in a new window.

Been loving Chrome since I switched from Firefox last year, I am very skeptical of Google's monopolistic tendencies when it comes to the internet but I can't resist a good product.

IE9 is shaping up to be really good though, in fact I have a feeling it will win some fans so if it's better than Chrome i'll have to look into it....

I use an extension called FreshStart. Works well, its only weakness compared to SessionManager in Firefox is that FreshStart automatically only saves your last browsing session. So if you accidentally close a session or you have a crash, and you forget to restore and save the previous session next time you start the browser and then you accidentally close Chrome, that session is lost forever. Whereas in SessionManager for Firefox automatically saved sessions are not overwritten.

Of course you can manually save a session at any time.

I've switched from Firefox to Chrome with this release. It does seem much faster than FF. However, there are a few things that I miss. I had some userstyles running in FF that would display spoiler text by mouseover.

Does anyone know if there is a similar extension for chrome?

What does the awesomebar do that the omnibar doesn't? I'm curious because I couldn't live with out being able to search from the omnibar. Every other browser seems so clunky without it.

If it's a userstyle, you should be able to just install it to Chrome.

if it's a userstyle you can just install it directly (as it's own extension), or you can use chrome's stylish extension (exactly the same as FFox)
