    You can move extensions now. Just hold alt while dragging the extension icons

    Nice to see them finally release an update for my browser of choice. I'll have to download when I get back on the laptop. What exactly is 'extension synchronization'? I'm just going to guess it's one of those little things I'll never actually notice.

    New Features

    * Extensions synchronization they really should add this to firefox I now need to use addons for that
    * Form autofill and autofill data synchronization doesn't firefox have this already
    * Streamlined UI (no borders on buttons, combined page and wrench menus, and enhanced Omnibar) looks worse than before
    * Ability to play WebM videos natively same as in the new firefox betas
    * "http://" is removed from URLs in the address bar why?
    * Built-in Chrome PDF viewer /care
    * Built-in Adobe Flash 10.1 (was floating around in 5 as well) /care

    as long as it doesn't have greasemonkey or the ability to move your favorites and search bar to the top I have no reason to use chrome

    Why are you complaining? It's freeware after all, use it or don't. The one thing both Chrome and Firefox users can agree on is that at least it beats Internet Explorer by at least a mile.

    And why are we complaining about if something needs add-ons or not? Firefox isn't nearly as good with add-ons and what not. Same goes with Chrome.

    Why not? It's been useless. Plus, there was apparently some people complaining of why the http:// thing is still there. There's no point of it at this day and age

    it supports greasemonkey scripts naturally, just go to userscriptsand click on what you want, and the address bar works as a search bar.

    these were both in the version i use (5 i assume)

    I think Google hired the greasemonkey guy to work on Chrome.

    greasemonkey is missing a few vital features on chrome a lot of scripts need to be adapted to work at all and some just are plain impossible.
