The start of a URL up to the first colon is called a "URI scheme" (or "URL scheme"). Googling for blob URI scheme reveals the W3C's File API efforts. Most URI schemes don't have standard provisions for containing a whole other URI, so you wouldn't think of them as prefixing another whole URI.

Try entering chrome://flags in your adress bar, searching for Enable touch events and setting that dropdown to Disabled. Recent versions of chrome do strange things on some pages that rely on detecting touch capabilities. Honestly I don't know why, but disabling touch events usually fixes the issue.

On Chrome 44 and newer on Windows, I managed to do it using the /disable-new-avatar-menu flag. One of the other answers suggests adding --disable-new-avatar-menu to a shortcut, but this didn't work for me on Windows 8.1 (on Linux it did). On Windows, the trick was to replace -- with \, so now my shortcut has Target: "C:\Program Files ...

Taking denilson-sá's answer further... You need revision numbers to grab downloads. So first lookup the full version string from the following URL, adjusting parameters as needed: https://omahaproxy.appspot.com/history.json?channel=stable&os=mac For Chrome version 28 the full version string is 28.0.1500.71. Now go to https://omahaproxy.appspot.com and ...

I agree - the change appears to have no benefit, and is cumbersome. Is there a keyboard shortcut to quickly switch ? I used to be able to CMD+Shift+M, press up/down, and hit enter to switch users. Now the same keyboard shortcut takes twice as many keys (CMD+Shift+M, press down to "Switch Person", Enter, press right twice, hit enter). Frustrating!

I had the same issue and found that the Chrome extensions to blame were called "Domain Error Assistant" and "eBay Shopping Assistant". These invasive extensions were automatically planted when I installed the uTorrent client.

Google Chrome's plugins are stored in one folder and use one file to function properly. Unlike Firefox and Internet Explorer, Google Chrome does not store its plugins in Windows Registry.

Probably the cleanest way is by using Windows security (ACL) to explicitly deny write and modify permissions to this folder: %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions Although in this case you would not be able to view the contents of the folder either.

Many of the answers and existing solutions have suffered from bit rot. As of mid-2015, the "virtual keyboard" in Chrome will take voice input, and it works with any input field (including Gmail). See: https://support.google.com/chromebook/answer/6076237?hl=en&source=genius-rts

I haven't found a way to do this within Chrome, but I have found a workaround. I use Pocket to save pages I want to read later. If I save a page to Pocket, then retrieve it from there, there's no problem with the auto-refresh. It's an extra step, but it works.

I just went through figuring this out. This is what worked for me. You can't share existing folders.
