If you have been using Chrome for any decent amount of time you may have found yourself looking to save your current updated bookmarks in Chrome to the other browsers on your computer. Upon searching you will soon find that this is a missing feature from the browser. Lucky for you and me however, a coder by the name of Mark Clouden has developed a nice (and might I say slick looking) stand alone program that will not only export your bookmarks from Chrome but also delete your download history too (otherwise you would have to delete each entry one by one).
After using Chrome for awhile i decided to use it as my main browser. When I first ran Chrome I thought I had approved it as my default browser, yet when I clicked links in many of my programs they opened in Firefox. To move full browser control over to Chrome all you need to do is click on the spanner, go to options, and click “Make Google Chrome my default browser”. You might Images after the break.
So today on the 3rd of September (2nd in Australia), Google has launched its browser after a false start yesterday. Google promised a browser which would be more secure, faster and better designed for today’s environment and boy did they deliver!
I must admit that I’ve only been playing around with it for a few hours now but so far this new browser is in serious contention to be my full time browser. And it’s not like I’m moving from Internet Explorer, I’ve been using Firefox since 2004. Let me present the features of Chrome (titles taken from the Chrome features page) and then my thoughts on what aspects of the browser I like.
