7 Ways to Get The Most Out of Google Chrome

I count only two things listed here you can't do in Safari. That said, I *love* the unified URL and search box in Chrome.



many of the drag and drop things and the open a tab in a new window are also in safari. the lose formatted text is also a universal keyboard shortcut.



As a chrome user I must admit it is a wonderful browser. My only true gripe is an absence of a Firefox utility like No-Script. Chrome will not be complete until a utility like this is available. No-Script is a dead simple and powerful tool that should be a primary component in EVERY browser as far as I'm concerned.

In the long run I probably won't stay with Chrome if they don't incorporate the ability to block all ads and scripts at the user's discretion. In the meantime, I will continue to work with it and watch for the growing pains that accompany any browser with the hopes that eventually they will show a degree of respect for their users to allow this functionality.

If they don't they will simply show that they are incapable of, or lack the competence of, the Mozilla teams and their associated developers.

Just my 1/50th of a dollar.



As a web developer I hate when users block JavaScript. I wish we could just assume that 100% of our users have JavaScript enabled, we can make drastically more functional websites with JavaScript.

Anyways, if you really want NoScript like functionality, it's actually already built into Chrome. Just go to the "wrench" icon > "options" > "Under The Hood" > "Content Settings" > "JavaScript" and click on "Do not allow any site to run JavaScript". Then whenever you go to a website with JavaScript in it, you'll get a little icon in the OmniBar saying Javascript was blocked. Click on it and you can then enable JavaScript for only that website. The same thing can be done for individual plugin's as well.

Don't get sassy about a product when you're the one who is actually uninformed, it just makes you look stupid.
