URL Auto Completion – This is one of those handy features in Chrome and Opera. In both of them this feature comes default. In firefox it doesn’t. Anyway we can do this by a small conifg change in firefox. There is a reason for this. Not many people are fans of this auto complete URL feature.
Google Chrome: If you’ve recently moved from Firefox to Chrome, you probably miss the way that Firefox orders tabs. This small Google Chrome extension switches the tab ordering in Chrome to mimic how Firefox handles new tabs.
The default behavior for Chrome is to group tabs together—new tabs open relative their parent tab. If you prefer new tabs to open at the end of the row in the order in which you have opened them, as they do in Firefox, Modified Tab Ordering can make that happen.
In the screenshot above you can see how we opened Chrome, visited Lifehacker.com, then Google, and then returned to the original tab to open a few links from Lifehacker—all the new tabs appeared at the end of the row as they opened instead of appearing, grouped, beside the original Lifehacker tab. It’s a small tweak, but if you’ve got a routine for how you open tabs and read them a little thing like the order they appear in can really throw you off. Note: As several sharp-eyed readers pointed out, as of version 3.6 Firefox has adopted grouped tabs instead of orderered tabs. This extension gives you the old-school-Firefox experience in Chrome for those who prefer ordered tabs over grouped ones.
Modified Tab Ordering is a free extension and works wherever Chrome does.

Google Chrome developer’s build for Mac egts an update with a number of stability fixes along with an update which includes a trackpad gesture that allows users to open the previous and next pages in a new tab using the CMD-three finger swipe.
Hold the CMD key and swipe with three fingers left or right, and you’ll open a new tab with the page found going back or forward. There’s also crude bookmark and cookie managers in this release.

And finally they made it available for download. But dont be happy yet. The OS won’t be appearing on commercial devices for at least another year.
There are lots of things to do just to make it work. They are providing only the source for Chrome OS. That means we have to compile it to make it work.
ANy way if you want to give it a try you can download the source code today.
Google prepares to reveal something about their. Google is planning to hold a special Chrome OS event at its headquarters in Mountain View, CA this Thursday morning.
The plan is to give some technical background information as well as show off some demos, we’re told. More notably, they will be giving a “complete overview” of the new OS, which they say will launch next year.
Google first announced Chrome OS in July, but gave very few details about it. This event is supposed to be a overview as per google. Anyway we can still hope that. they may release a beta version for their Chrome. But still the complete version for the OS will be coming sometime around next year, 2010.
