Does the Ad block extension truly block ads now or does it simply keep on hiding them?

Is it not out for Mac or something? Went to About Google Chrome and it says I have the latest version (5.0).

I used to be a firefow guy. But now I' m starting to think I'll go Chrome...

Is there such a thing as WOT and smooth scrolling for chrome ?

Is it that better than firefox ?

Minor differences it seems? The tabs just got bigger it seems, which appears to be counter intuitive since the whole point of Chrome was to have as much webpage viewing space as possible.

Awesome bar keeps me using Firefox because it destroys what Chrome has but if I need anything specific quick I'll use Chrome for the speed.

it broke my bookmarks tweak (button in bar). I need that as I'm not a fan of the bookmarks bar. A firefox like search engine would be nice too (I know that the address bar is a search, but i like FF's implementation).

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but is there any extension for Chrome that adds RSS feeds in an intuitive and integrated way (e.g. a sidepane)? It's the only reason I'm still using Firefox (too used to the "Brief" extension), and I'd love to have something similar in Chrome, since I'm sick of the memory hogging Firefox does.

I got an important question here, is it possible to minimize the tabs, so that only the websites' logos are shown on the tab like before?

"Pin tab" with a Right Click? Yeah.

Been my preferred browser for 2 years now.

Right clicking on the tab and selecting Pin Tab seems to do it.

Depends on the number of tabs.

Lower y axis intercept but the slope is steeper.

Yeah, chrome is not very good at displaying animated .gif files for some reason.

Just updated. :D Love the darker blue title bar (would be transparent if I wasn't on my netbook with 7 Starter and no Aero right now) and gray UI, less distracting for sure. And love how they got rid of the ugly bars around the extension badges. Just set up extension and autofill sync, will do it again when I get home. :D

Only thing stopping me from jumping to Chrome is the fact that I cant auto-delete history on exit on Mac. Windows users can use an extension which does that though.

Edit: Wow this is lightning quick! And it looks super slick.

Go into finder and trash the old chrome app.

The UI looks a lot better btw. :)

No, you've gotten used to your iPhone and OSX. Personally, I find the iPhone UI somewhat offensive at this point (and I owned an original 2G iPhone) and like OSX, but I don't find Chrome highly unwelcome in the OSX environment. It doesn't stand out to me as being bad, there's practically no UI at all for crying out loud.

Google took it out of the dev builds longer ago than that. :) I think there was a small outcry in June.
