Anybody know any good tricks or tips for Google Chrome? I've been trying it out and I really like it, but it doesn't quite have the functionality of Firefox or Flock yet.

I used google chrome for a couple days, but i'm too used to firefox and had to switch back. I wish google had the google toolbar for their own browser at least! You can view the Chrome Plugin forums (http://www.chromeplugins.org/google/) for some good tips/tricks

Exactly the same here until a few days ago when I installed it on my machine at work. It's just immeasurably faster than Firefox. I think that Firefox will catch up with the release of v 3.1 and Trace monkey, but as of now Chrome is way faster. I still use Firefox for several things because of the options and add-ons though, Chrome just isnt customizable enough yet, but I'm sure that will change. Thanks for the link :)

Well am now sure that all the users who are Firefox users would not like to switch to any other browsers. But being a product of Google it always deserved a look and I installed Chrome about a couple of months ago.
Yeah I agree its lightening fast but missed out on the features like the toolbar and the Auto remember feature which is so useful for me. But I liked the idea of typing the search keywords in the address bar itself to get Google results. A good browser and am sure it would have the prospects to grow but Firefox rules for the moment.

I loved chrome, thought to myself "damn, mozilla and ie just became obsolete"... and then I realized how many little add-on's I use. Specifically, I bought a little program that allows me to download youtube videos vs just watching them on youtube.com. This sounds not so important until you realize that, for me, it's much easier to search for and download a video for a song than downloading a mp3. Plus, on my iPhone, i can play the videos and watch them which is mint in my book.
The reason I bring this up... Chrome = Google... Google = youtube... Firefox is still king in my book, retaining the free, made by the people for the people mentality. Chrome = googles way of snagging your data \ info to generate ad money.

Just my humble opinion.

WOW,this thread is old with no activity in a long while.

Am I waking the dead.

I use Chrome and IE mostly and I'm always looking for ways to manage and control cookies.

Saw this plugin today.

VANILLA WHITELISTS COOKIES FOR GOOGLE CHROME

Cookies are something that is used for storing personal or text information and authenticating data. Since cookies carry information, they can be used to track users or their browsing activity. Munching on cookies and leaving a trail of crumbs behind may not be a good idea especially if you want to keep your identity secret. But staying off the cookie jar will leave you blocked from many web apps like Google Mail which rely on cookies to function. If turning off cookies completely or shutting off third-party cookies is not a viable option, the Vanilla whitelists a Google Chrome extension may prove useful.

Vanilla enables users to select which cookies they want to maintain on the whitelists which will not be deleted; other cookies will be manually or automatically deleted. Vanilla appears as an icon on the Chrome Superbar; a slash through the icon shows that that site is not allowed to save cookies. Users can click on the icon to add sites to the whitelists. Vanilla also provides the option of deleting cookies every time users close their browser or enabling automatic deletion of unwanted cookies after 30 minutes.The Vanilla free Chrome extension is available for download.

Chrome 8 looks like a sweet package

The browsing field is looking increasingly competitive these days. Firefox 4 will soon be released and comes packing a fresh new look, new features, and a speed bump. Likewise Opera 11 is shaping up to be an impressive package as well, adding extensions for the first time, and continuing to lead Firefox in speed. And Internet Explorer 9 from Microsoft could soon mean that Windows users can finally stick with the default browser and get acceptable speed and standards compliance (something not so true for past IE versions).

But Chrome 8 looks to offer a well thought out package that may be the cream of the crop for this loaded generation of browser wars. Chrome has always vied with Opera for the title of fastest browser. Now both browsers have extensions, as well.

While Opera 11 has some new perks -- tab stacking, improved mouse gestures, etc -- Chrome 8 adds something that's arguably an even bigger deal -- the world's first in-browser web app store, dubbed "Web Store".

Among the cool upcoming apps to be featured in the store are Plants. vs. Zombies and Lego Star Wars. For the non-gamers there's also a Sports Illustrated app, a $4.99 image editing app dubbed "Dark Room" (think online Photoshop Elements).

The concept is very ambitious. While it remains to be seen how successful these apps really are in action, it arguably is reason enough to give Chrome 8 a try. The store itself will launch before the year's end, according to Google and now is supported on the software side.

Also new in Chrome 8 are over 800 bug fixes and a built-in PDF reader.

The current version of Chrome 8 is Version 8.0.552.215. You can download it from here.

Summary of the Google Chrome stable 8 updates includes:

Stability improvements.
More than 800 bug fixes.
Built-in PDF viewer that works inside Chrome’s sandbox for increase security.
The Google Chrome stable 8 is now available for free download at Google Chrome official site. Just head to the following URL to access official Google Chrome 8.0.552.215 download:

Free Google Chrome Add-On for Online Voice Search

If you do a lot of searches online and would like to try using voice search, a free add-on for Chrome might pique your interest. This extension for Chrome Google allows you to voice your search terms instead of keying them in. This might slow down the search process for some users but it could also prove to be more fun. A microphone is needed for the extension to work. A microphone icon will appear and users just need to click on that and say the search terms.

Voice Search does not just support searches on Google but also YouTube, Wikipedia, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, Wolfram Alpha by default. For instance, users can say ‘YouTube 2011 New Year Celebrations’ and find the latest videos on the firework displays. Or users could say ‘Wikipedia Ferrari’ and find information on the carmaker in the online encyclopedia. Users can also add their own search engines not in the default list for their searches. The extension, Voice Search, is still at the experimental stage and users may have to add enable-voice-input as well as say their search terms clearly and audibly for the add-on to work

I love CHROME. It is way faster than fx, and if you hit the + tab it shows you the last 6 places you visited. Also, you can have your bookmarks right under your toolbar for faster access. I surf porn ALOT and have yet yo get a virus.

I've been using Chrome for about a year almost. I love it! It's quick. The google search function is built into the address bar.
As far as any tips I have. Sync your gmail/google account to your chrome browser. It remembers your entire favorites list and what extensions you run, even if you go to a new computer and install chrome there, it will download it all for you. No more updating my bookmarks and importing them for me. I really enjoy the home page function also. It opens up after you sync.

I changed from Chrome 8 to 10 beta to get back the ability to download to my desktop in "Under The Hood".Version 8 lost this feature.

The update was simple and I didn't lose anything.

I installed Chrome in the past never used much. This site is not displaying with IE8 on the sales part correct. So I installed Chrome for that. It is fast. I mean it really is at least here.

Google plans to remove support for H.264 video from Chrome over the next couple months.

"Specifically, we are supporting the WebM (VP8) and Theora video codecs, and will consider adding support for other high-quality open codecs in the future. Though H.264 plays an important role in video, as our goal is to enable open innovation, support for the codec will be removed and our resources directed towards completely open codec technologies".
