Since the link to the snapshots seems to change more often then I can keep track off I recommend using this link Chromium AppSpot Download to download the latest binaries for each OS.

I had built a Chrome extension which does this. Note: I built this for just 2 sites - just for the heck of it - by no means it's professional quality™. Please don't flame me for crappy code :) Edit: Updated to manifest v2, which brings in certain additional restrictions. manifest.json { "name": "URL Redirect", "version": "0.2", "description": ...

In short, you can't, and it doesn't seem to be coming. I'm guessing they're trying to teach you good tab management and to let make you play with the tab ripping.

The page searchdomaincheck returns your preferred Google domain. For me, visiting it returns https://www.google.com/ normally, but https://www.google.com.py/ in a temporary profile and incognito mode. This is its main function, although I fail to see why it is needed if you're not using the Google search engine. To make this possible, Chromium has to be ...

Chromium uses one process per plugin, one process per renderer (which corresponds to the number of tabs, generally speaking), and another browser process to manage all of the renderers. The renderers each run in their own sandboxes and can't directly use your disk, network, or display, which they must request access to through the browser process so that ...

Only WebKit browsers allow styling of validation bubbles using the -webkit-validation-bubble* CSS styles. However, since Chrome moved away from WebKit to Blink, this was removed.

Press Ctrl+B for the Chrome 5 (or Shift+Ctrl+B for Chrome 6). And bookmark sidebar probably would not be added: I don't think Google would consider that; part of Chrome's appeal is the minimalistic interface. Many users of other browsers have complained as to how bulky sidebars can be, so I doubt Google will add them. But anyway, you could check a ...
