Agree with this guy, make something similar to speed dial and a lot more of people including me will be using Chrome instead.

The only thing I've run across so far is that text under the blue bar will not display Steam Support. Going from this link, which works, and clicking either Game or Steam is where I've found the issue. I've disabled GPU Accelerated Compositing and GPU Accelereated Canvas 2D but still seeing the problem. Using IE Tab gets around the problem.

just waking up old threat

several years ago, I'm asking my self why opera has internal mail client, it's useless.
then today, I'm trying mail client @ opera 11, OMG it's so wonderfull. Uninstall my thunderbird, and switch over to opera.

so, i have to open chrome for browsing and opera for mail. but some times dreaming about internal mail client @ chrome, it should beautifull

When are we going to have a keyboard shortcut to "Pin Tabs" and to close that dread awful download bar at the bottom of the browser? Hmm? I would like to know.

It's amazing how Chrome has a lot of nifty features but fail to include simple, much-needed/wanted shortcuts such as these.

But I know I'm just typing to myself.

Carry on...

Yes, there seems to be some serious memory leak with this build. The browser memory usage spikes to more than 120K with just 5 tabs open on Win7/64-bit. And Flash becomes unresponsive.
