I was wondering what the hell was going on with the fonts too... I thought there might have been something up with my computer not rasterizing the font.

Does it have a proper sidebar (Bookmarks) yet?

This is the only thing I am waiting for to make the jump.


No.

And since Chrome 15 ruined the auto-showing bookmarks bar, I started looking at extensions for my bookmarks. I found Neat Bookmarks (https://chrome.google.com/webs...liccjabjjmipbpjkfbijifaainp) which works pretty well! It adds a toolbar button that basically works as a sidebar, just that it's a popup menu instead of covering the entire vertical window space, but that's a detail in my opinion. What's best about it, is the quick search entry that let you instantly get to any of your bookmarks.

You can start Chrome with the "--new-tab-page" parameter to get the old (way better) New Tab page back.

What? That isn't even included in Chrome, it's a separate plug-in.

Flash is included with Google Chrome and yes, version 11.
