Off topic but this is what he is talking about:

Opera will be sane choice in scenario which Chrome surfing into.. Becoming too much restrictive and policies.

Firefox and IE can give them competition but they need to speed up their games and development especially IE since it has several standard compliance issues.

IE is not that bad but I still don't use it, because my themes always makes IE unusable lol

And you can always go for making it a private extension in the chrome store to solve the extension problem though this is not the best solution :/

Also canary builds have this annoying extension check disabled.

That's the Windows 8 version though. Windows 7 version looks nothing like that.

Still has them one pixel border, always has. Chrome doesn't. Useless on multi monitor and other situations.

Another important thing to note to get the trick I (badly) described is that you need to be at least running the beta version of Chrome. I assumed most people were so I left that part out.

Ah ha, that would be my problem then.

A lot of effort :/

Thanks for the link^

 

However, using Windows 7 (Home Premium) means I don't have access to a Group Policy Editor.

Found I can install the required files from here: http://www.askvg.com...arter-editions/

 

Got's to restart and will give it a go.....

 

 

EDIT:  Which didn't work.

I installed the file but still no access to Group Policy editor.

 

Iron does not recognise the extension either so that option is out too.

 

I wonder what the reasoning behind all this is   :/

 

EDIT 2: Through the above link though, I managed to find another extension which is still in the Chrome store, which does the same thing so I guess I'll use this for now.

I can still use third-party extensions by dragging the .crx file into the extensions tab.
