I don't use 20 search engines (maybe 10) but the ones I use the most often I have keywords setup for. Usually I prefix the keyword with a slash so I use /br for bb-ref, /wp for wikipedia etc.

Alt + V / Toolbars should give you the toolbar view options.

Thanks, I ended up getting it last night. I tend to post crap before doing the work myself. :-B

while we are on the topic of n00b questions.. I'm not really a master of this stuff.

Any of you chrome users know how I can get my bookmarks bar to always be at the top of my browser, instead of only on the homescreen.

anyone know how I change the order and display of my extensions on the right?


anyone know any cool tricks that I probably don't know, but probably should?

I think I'm the last person on earth that still uses IE and hotmail. I tried firefox and had all kinds of problems with it and tried gmail and hated it. HATE. I should get a "Hotmail 4 Life" tattoo.

I use FF and hotmail. I've been using this hotmail account for ten years. I have thousands of emails saved in this thing. If I could transfer them to gmail I might make a permanent switch, but I don't know how to do that.

gmail is OK. Not so great I have to switch.

Why do I want chrome over FF? Did I miss the posts where chrome killed FF and danced on its grave?

I switched back to Firefox because I was having a problem with Chrome stalling on large downloads. Also, once I installed all the extensions I used in Firefox, Chrome didn't seem that much faster and I was missing a couple good ones unavailable on Chrome. Plus, I could never get any of the mouse gesture extensions to work as good as the one I use with Firefox. The big plus of Chrome for me is that it handles embedded video and other flash related things better but that wasn't enough for me to stay with it.

Thats where i am right now.

I have deleted this one RSS feed like four times, and yet there it is still on my toolbar. The lack of toolbar control is very frustrating. Iv'e got icons on both sides of my browser, instead of all one nice neat place.

And i still can't get greasemonkey to work properly. No split screen control that i could find. thats huge for drafts.

I'll give it till the season starts, but my immediate enthusiasm about its speed is gone.

meh! it hasn't crashed once. I'll give it that.
