i messing around with google chrome, it's fairly decent with privoxy running. no ads! but, i can't find a setting to open my bookmarks or anything else in a new tab. unless i hit the "+" at the top to open a new empty tab. i keep having to go back in one tab. any ideas?

You can open in a new tab by middle-clicking on the bookmark.

Just backing up what Geek said - this middle clicking also works on the bookmarks you (may or may not) have on the bookmarks bar below the address bar

Same - it's so light on resources it's a joy to use
My only issue with it, is that it doesn't use the Windows Favourites folder - is there any way to make it do this?
Then my IE favourites and my Chrome favourites would always be synced, which would be great

oh yeah, i haven't got that far yet. it seems like it could only be added by ie into favorites then imported to google

Yes - so what happens when you find something you want to save on chrome?

Oh yes - I know that, that's how it works

But I was meaning - what happens when you make a favourite through chrome, then go onto IE

Don't know about Ubuntu

I'm looking around for a solution on the bookmarks front, but hopefully something soon

i dont use chrome so i dont really know if this works or even if it is possible but you could try and change the directory of its save folder. maybe even going to the actual folder where chrome saves its bookmarks and changing that folders directory to i.e fav folder. let me know if this is even possible.

i'm finding out i need to clear chromes cache a lot to keep it running smoothly. like maybe once an hour or so, firefox i never had to. but firefox always has the "lag" feature going anyway

do you think if we cleaned ie 8's catch that often its performance would increase?
