Tag Archives: tabbed settings Chrome
If you’re using the Canary build of Chrome, you may have already noticed: your settings menu is now a tab instead of a pop-up dialog box. Instead of using an operating system-generated window for options, the Chrome team has switched over to HTML. This is expected, since Chromium and Chrome OS already have this feature.
But it’s actually a better way to find different settings as Chrome’s feature set has become larger.
Last night’s Google Chrome release announcement for the Beta channel has flipped over to version 7. One of the major updates is the Google Chrome Labs feature becoming available for the first time in this channel. This is in an attempt to move some features out of the command line switch and into an easier toggle method by using the “about:labs” command from the Omnibox for the menu of options.
One interesting other feature included for Macs is an expose-like showing of all open tabs. CNET’s Steve Shankland has a photo of this, which looks like a great feature that has been on display as a variety of extensions, but is integrated for Apple users.
