The latest version of Chrome in Windows is, not because it'll be available only Mac & Linux. :P

Can I ask for something? I would like to have an option to customize tab behaviour. Cause everytime you open a link in a new tab, the focus switches on the new tab, and you have to switch back to contiue reading the original article. So it would be nice to have an option to open links in a background tab.

Does anyone have any insight as to whether "Bookmark all tabs" or "Save Session" will come to chrome?? Honestly this is the only thing I NEED at this time - everything is just gravy.

I don't see why this should be difficult since you can close a window and reopen it - why not be able to bookmark all of those (ie firefox) or save that session and come back it later - without it NEEDING to be the next time.

@Lajos: What OS are you on? Opening new tabs in the background is the default behavior on Windows.

@kollegedude8383: , patches welcome.

@pkasting - I'm on Vista, tho I'm using Chromium mostly updating it like trice a day. But it also affects the current devbuild, at least for me.

"Save session" is an implemented feature - open some tabs, close your browser, reopen it and you will see your last session in Recently closed.

Lajos, I use middle click (wheel click) for opening links in background in new tab. Try it.

Yeah I know that works mate, but my middle click is usually bind on VoIP mic. activation, so sending "burps" of background noise in to the conversation while browsing is not the optimal solution. :)

A simple hint for a simple new feature that I would be using, a new window button:

There is a "plus" button that opens a new tab. What about putting one more on the right side from the "plus" button, e.g. an "upper arrow" button, that would open a new window? It's the same as opening the tab, grabbing the tab, and moving it from the other tabs to a new window, but in one step.

But and WebFont support? Safari (webkit engine) have webfont support but gChrome doesn't.

I'm not sure why not. But for me, I would call a much bigger highlight in the new release that flash is now at least partially working on the dev version.

Thats a major milestone for me.
Makes it in Linux finally valuable.
