Amazing! The refinements to the UI are fantastic.I was actually a fan of attaching the 'Refresh' button to the Omnibox, and I felt it was a poor regression when it was undone. This, however, is much smarter. One idea I had, though: Clicking the Omnibox icon (the magnifying glass, or the globe) will execute the content within. Basically fulfilling the operation lost when the 'Go' button was removed.
PLEASE Jason spread the word.. we users need these features VERY MUCH:- master password- option to not allow history collecting- themes manager
Hi,It look very nice the refinements!Thanks!
A refinement to my idea: Clicking the Omnibox icon will only execute the content within it if the url of the page currently being viewed is no longer present. This would eliminate the duplication of the 'refresh' function, and also retain the current 'Security Information' feature.
beautiful.. simply beautiful :). seyss isnt their extensions for master passwords?
... and:- print preview
Refinements look GREAT! love the new flat look of the theme! One suggestion... - In the wrench toolbar button, 'Extensions' are buried within 'Tools'. To me it seems like it would make a lot of sense to put 'Extensions' above 'Bookmarks Manager' on the main menu of the wrench.
I agree with some of the suggestions for Chrome in the comments, particularly these:-Master password-Theme manager. It'd be cool to have a list of saved themes so I could switch between them without having to track them down in the extensions gallery.-Print preview-Geordon's suggestion about the Omnibox icon-Putting the 'Extensions' link back into a more conspicuous placeAnd a couple of my own:-Please restore the 'drag and hold to pin and unpin' behavior. I miss it so.-Keyboard shortcut for the extensions page.Thank you,Andrew
Great work Chrome Team! The UI updates/ changes are clean and very appealing.I love it, keep up the excellent updates.
Love the new UI, but I'm not sure if I like the gray color. It might be too gray? I thought it would be a gray ala XP window chrome gray. Or maybe the gray tab color.But I LOVE the border-less toolbar buttons; please bring them to the beta channel pronto.
PS Looking at it, the Chrome tab gray looks like the same shade as the Windows XP gray window color, but the gray Chrome toolbar is grayer (I don't know if I like the darker gray color of the Chrome toolbar).
nice UI, but1. when chrome will remove other bookmark2. there must be a separator between wrench menu and extension in toolbar
@Geordon, what if I just want to refresh the current existing content of the page?
@Red Then you would just hit the refresh/reload button.
Please:- Limit Internet Cache Size
Very Nice updates!Thanks Google Dev Team. :)
well done team.by the way, by any chances that there is a change log for each canary build update??thanks.
I too think there must be a separator between wrench menu and extension tools.In fact, personally I liked more the previous UI. Anyway, good job!!
Beta should receive more updates and be at a higher release number than Stable.I really love the new Developer layout as well. ^_^
@Geordon, so what duplicating refresh function is this trying to eliminate?
@RedIt eliminates the duplication of the refresh function posed by my first comment. My original comment(post #1) contains the original idea, while my second comment(post #4) refines the idea.If the idea was simply to have the Omnibox always execute its content, upon clicking the icon with no changes made, one would simply reload the page: effectively duplicating the "refresh" function.
I'm getting a gray line behind the icons in the omnibox, including the globe, but not behind the url. Using Ubuntu 10.04.
+1 HilmyI am using Ubuntu 10.04.Getting a slight grey line behind 'globe' and 'star' bookmark icon. Also, some behind omni search results.http://uploadpic.org/view-pic.php?img=82935
@GeordonI'm not picking on you or anything - I'm finding the idea interesting.So clicking on the Globe gives you different results depending on the content of the page (execute/go, reload page, or display security info)? I think this could be a bit confusing.
If I want to get the Chromium version of the dev build, how do I go about doing that? I've tried matching the SVN revision to a snapshot, but they don't always line up. For example, the last SVN revision from the log linked to in this post is 54852, but the snapshot builds go from 54850 to 54855 (both reporting version 6.0.485.0 in the about screen). The kicker of it is that this has worked for me in the past to match SVN revisions to snapshot builds.And before someone suggests that I just download the Google Chrome Dev Channel, I am only interested in Chromium at this time.
@RedMy idea would only propose two actions: Execute/Go, and display security info(current.)In my second comment, I corrected my initial idea. The initial idea would do exactly as you suggest: Confuse people by adding too many operations to too many instances, all in one icon. What my second comment states, is if executing the content in the Omnibox will result in a page refresh, then the icon will instead default to displaying security info(current behaviour.) BUT, if executing the content in the Omnibox does not duplicate the refresh function, then it should proceed with the execute/go function.
@Jerry, there is no direct corresponding Chromium build to match the current Chrome dev build.Chrome dev builds are cut at a certain SVN revision, but they may have branch only modifications and additions. You cannot compare the Chrome SVN revision with Chromium revisions after the branch has been cut, which it now has been in preparation for Chrome 6.This will only work *approximately *in previous cases if the Chrome dev version is not *too* different from the Chromium version.
Firefox 4b already supports .mht files.. Chrome should also support this one. It is really frustrating having to use IE whenever we come across a site with .mht file.
Chrome also needs a separate proxy settings for chrome and chrome alone. Why does it have to share the settings with IE.. Firefox and other browsers have their own proxy settings.. Please do something about this, chrome team..
Is there any way to run two versions of Chrome on a Mac? I'm currently on the beta channel right now and would also like to test run on the the dev channel as well.
On ubuntu 10.04 there is a lot of graphical glitch with this update.* A little bar on icons in the omnibar.* When typing in the omnibar results are unreadable due to graphical glitches.* There in an empty menu at the end of the extensions icons list on startup (I have to resize it to get these arrows to disappear).
SSL is broken again.
Does anyone actually look at the bug reports we file? I submitted <a href="http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=49919>a bug about a regression with CSS gradients</a> a few weeks ago, complete with a simple HTML testcase to easily reproduce it, and so far it's just sat their without any evidence anybody has even looked at it. I know the Chromium team obviously has limited resources, but some kind of triage process and response would be nice, so we know we're not just wasting our time submitting bug reports.
As of 6.0.472.22 the PDF plugin still is not working on my F12 64-bit system. When might we expect some joy here?
The new UI is great except for the color but I wonder what they will do to mininalize the UI for Chrome 12. Can't see what else they can do, but then again we said that just last year.
I love Google Chrome. I am currently using the beta version but it doesn't update automatically (as the stable version used to). Whenever I try, Chrome says it is up to date even when I know that there are more current versions. Does anyone know how can fix this (cos I have to download Chrome every time there is a new beta release)Kudos to the Chrome team. Hope to see better utilization with Download Managers soon
+1 Hillmy, +1 SlubmanOmnibox search results under Ubuntu are unreadable; odd horizontal line on Omnibox icons; child windows are not picking up GTK theme (nasty bright blue rather than selected GTK theme).Please have scrollbars follow GTK theme, too!
WebApps tabs now look just like the pinned tabs, please change it back.when running with --apps-panel the links from "recently closed" don't work when clicked, they work only with right-click -> open link in new tab.please add an "internet cache" size/limiting option, and "empty internet cache" on exit or make "clear browsing data" available to run on exit, clearing only what is checked there (as firefox does)Thanks
I won't use google chrome until you make it's status bar like firefoxwith respect .....
address bar still isnt refreshed with actual page address when you press F5 but is when you press the button...http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=45320

I have to clean out Chrome's browsing history every week because otherwise it'll balloon and make History load slow, either in the History tab or from the Omnibox.Make it like IE8 that it has an option to limit the size of the cache and how many days of browsing history to keep (and delete/empty) all after that day).
@yira, there is actually a separator between the wrench and the extensions icons, which will appear if you drag the right edge of the Omnibox a little to the right.
This is so far the most useful update on dev channel

The new UI is nice but start page is what actually needs redesign. Start page is ugly compared to speed dial in Opera or Safari. Smooth scrolling (Opera) is also urgent for more comfortable and smoother browsing experience.
@Geordon I like your idea, but perhaps it should be the star that "phases" into a "go" arrow. Having the globe change and, in turn, having the go/refresh function on the left side of the omnibar would be aesthetically ... unpleasant. What you're saying: If you change the content within the omnibar, a "go" function will be initiated - new icon, feature, bar - whatever. If the content isn't changed, a la just clicking the globe, the security infobox will display. Yes no?
there is an issue with the new UI. the home page button has extra pudding on the bottom part, very annoying expecially on dark themes. please see issue:http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=50667
Great great UI design, I simply love it! But seriously, you must bring back the separator between the wrench and extensions, it looks way too clogged right now. Room shouldn't be an issue, as there is probably a lot of "white space" in most people's omniboxes' anyway.
Looks great, and clean Suggestions:- In the wrench toolbar button, 'Extensions' are buried within 'Tools'. it would make a lot of sense to put 'Extensions' above 'Bookmarks Manager' on the main menu of the wrench.Bug: Seems a pdf does not open in this, but opens in IE correctly. Am using chrome built in pdf
The "Tools" menu item is not translated into Portuguese (Brazil), which would be "Ferramentas". All other items are.
Is there any way to get rid of that extra space on top of the tabs? I like as much real estate as possible when viewing a web page. I know its only minimal gains but every pixel counts.
@bt: especially on small/limited screen devices like netbooks. one of the boxes on which I use chrome is a netbook running linux and it amazes me how much slop is present in the ui of many apps and/or GTK themes... even under Mac OS X, there's space to be gained by squeezing...
I've searched the web and found something to gain back that extra space on top of the tabs. Take a look here:http://i37.tinypic.com/2a5c374.jpgCould you guys somehow implement this in future versions of Chrome? I know it may not seem much of a gain in real estate but it definitely helps and makes the browser look that much better. I already love that the status bar only appears when needed. If you guys are interested in a modification to gain back those few pixels on top of the tabs, check here: http://www.koshic.com/?tag=google-chromePlease implement this in the future versions of Chrome!
@TylerYes, that's what I'm suggesting. However, the globe icon wouldn't change into a go arrow. Its appearance would remain the same, only its function would change.
@Geordon That would most likely confuse people even more or be one of those features that no one knows about if the globe remained a globe.
@Geordon & TylerWell, if the Omnibar content is a search term, then it would become a magnifying glass.
@PseudocubeThat's kind of what I'm saying. Where the star is should be a dynamic icon that changes depending on what you're trying to do. It's a "go" button if you're entering a website. It's a magnifying glass if you're searching for something. It's a "refresh" button if the content remains unchanged on mouseover. You get the picture. But, by default, it's - something - and it just changes. (It'd be more aesthetically pleasing that way)
UI Updates are FANTASTIC. Simply the best browser available.Thanks.
Love the new changes.I think you should move the extentions to a more visible place!
for who is concerned about extensions link in top position on wrench menu please refer to this bug:http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=48242
Hmm, I just thought of a better idea than the globe icon turning into a go button. Why not have the refresh button change to an arrow when text is entered into the Omnibox? I think it would be much better, aesthetically.
@pseudocubeAfter further thought, I like the idea of fitting the feature into an existing button, instead of into the globe. I don't like the idea of losing the 'refresh' button. Perhaps it would be a better idea to move the 'go' functionality to the 'forward' button, instead of the 'refresh' button.
