Chrome Complaints

The switch from Firefox is almost two weeks old. It’s been ok. Some things I don’t like about Chrome:

  • HTTP auth popup dialogs don’t allow pasting a password via the keyboard. You have to use the mouse. My fault!
  • You can’t drag a tab onto the bookmarks toolbar to bookmark it. You can highlight the address and drag that though.
  • It’s taking longer than expected to get used to doing Google searches from the address bar instead of a dedicated search box.
  • I keep selecting Copy from the right click menu, when I’m trying to Copy Link Address.
  • Clearing the DNS host cache is a pain in the ass. I use my hosts file a lot to load domains from a sandbox server.

Maybe I need to dig around extensions a bit. What are your must haves?
