Released a few weeks ago only to the developer version of Chrome, Google has now pushed out a full-on bookmark manager in the latest beta going out to users (version 0.4.154.25). Make sure you’re running the latest build (choose About Google Chrome and hit the update button), and then you can hit Ctrl+Shift+B to launch the new Bookmark manager, which isn’t as fleshed-out as Firefox 3′s but is a huge improvement over the older version. There are no tags or smart folders, but there’s a search box (of course) and a Recently Added area where you can quickly see newly-bookmarked URLs. See the rest of the updates and bug fixes in the new version here. Now that Chrome’s been out for three months and much of the hype has died down, are you still using the new browser from Google?
Google Chrome, the open source browser from Google gets abookmark manager. Google has released a new developer-oriented version of Chrome that brings better bookmark management to the Web browser. This version of Google Chrome is available only to the subscribers of Dev channel of Chromium. The latest development version is 0.4.154.18 which gets the new bookmark manager.
Another change according to the release notes is the popup blocker. Previously the pop-up blocker just minimized pop-up windows to the lower right corner of the browser window, create one ‘constrained’ window for each pop-up. Now, Google Chrome displays one small notification in the corner that shows the number of blocked pop-ups. A menu on the notification lets you open a specific pop-up, if needed.
Here’s a quick hack although many of you probably know this:
1. Visit Hotmail.com
3. The resulting page says that Hotmail cannot identify your browser (Typical MS style, if you think it’s better than your own, pretend it doesn’t exist! Try ignoring Firefox now!). Near the bottom of this page is a link which says “continue anyway” or something on that mood. Click on that and you are good to go. And use the new 0.4beta of Chrome for better performance.
Sometimes while using Google Chrome it may happen that you don’t manage to watch flash content (videos) from famous websites such as Google Video or YouTube. What you get instead is the following error message: “Sorry the video is no longer available”. Of course the video is still available but what maybe you don’t know is that you are just experiencing a Macromedia flash player incompatibility with your Google Chrome. To check this theory out it is just sufficent to open you Internet Explorer or Firefox browser and try to watch the video. If you can do it, it means that… your flash player needs to be updated. Here is the trick to fix it:
If we see theoritically, Chrome should be more secure than other browsers because, rather than being a single-threaded application, each tab is handled by its own sandboxed process.
Google (NSDQ: GOOG)’s Chrome browser is only a day old, but security researchers already have found vulnerabilities that can be exploited.
According to a report published by ZDNet, security researcher Aviv Raff has found that he can combine a flaw in the open source WebKit engine with a Java bug to dupe Chrome users into downloading executable files.
The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by an address
The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is earlier
than 0.3.154.9. Such versions are reportedly are affected by an
address spoofing vulnerability in pop-ups. An attacker can leverage
this issue to manipulate a window’s address bar to show a different
address than the actual origin of the content.

Chrome offers an all-in-wonder search box that lets you search for the URL, a bookmark, smart results, and popular searches based on the term or terms you entered. For our example, I chose to use “California”. When entering that term, I was able to get an option to search Google for California, go to the State of California website, and even search for the California Lottery and the California DMV, popular searches on Google that have the term “California” in them.
When opening a new tab in Chrome, as long as the tab is blank when you open it [by pressing CTRL + T / CMD + T], you can bask in the awe of your most visited Web Sites. So if you visit CNN.com every day, it’ll likely be number one on this list. With the Most Visited feature, you can track up to 9 with thumbnails. You can even jump to your history with a click of the link.
What’s also very handy about this is when you’ve closed your tabs and decide you want to go back to them again, you don’t have to hit up your history, just open a new tab and look right under “Recently Closed Tabs”. The last three are listed there and are no longer beyond your reach.
With the power of Chrome, you can visit any Web Site you wish, click on the and choose CREATE APPLICATION SHORTCUTS. From here you can create links on your desktop, quick launch bar, and more to said favorite Web Sites. I was not able to get it to work under my environment but that doesn’t mean I can’t share the YouTube video with you that Google made about it.
If I could get it to work, this would be something I would promote heavily. Just a click on the desktop and you’re on your way to your email, your news, your online RSS reader, or even MySpace or Facebook.
