Is there a way I can disable typing in Google Chrome's URL bar or hide it in the current version? I know about Kiosk mode but it removes the tool bars and tabs.
For Chrome Dev Version:
- Open about:flags
- Enable 'Compact Navigation'. restart chrome
- Right-click on a tab and select 'Hide the toolbar'
This hides the address bar by default. For current tab you can use 'ctrl-L' to show the address bar and 'escape' to hide it
