Dev Channel Update

The Dev channel has been updated to 24.0.1305.3  for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome Frame.  This build contains following updates:

All

  • Updated V8 - 3.14.5.0
  • Bookmarks are now searched by their title while typing into the omnibox with matching bookmarks being shown in the autocomplete suggestions pop-down list. Matching is done by prefix. Example: if there is a bookmark with a title of “Doglettes & Catlettes” typing any of the following into the omnibox will likely present the bookmark as a suggestion:: “dog”, “cat”, “cat dog”, “dog cat”, “dogle”, etc. Typing “ogle” or “lettes” will not match.
  • Fixed issues 155871, 154173, 155133.

Windows

I'm on the beta channel but I'm looking forward to the improvements coming to how Chrome handles bookmarks typed in the Omnibox.

I HATE how Chrome won't suggest a bookmark because it hasn't been visited! Since the site is bookmarked, Chrome shouldn't wait until I visit it (again) to suggested it -- it's a bookmark for a reason.

Bookmarks in an area where Chrome really needs to improve things. Lack of dedicated bookmarks button, bookmarks are buried under a sub-menu unless the bookmarks bar is displayed or a user has to do many clicks just to open a bookmark.

Removing the uninstaller from the Start menu is a terrible idea. I don't care what Microsoft says. It's a million times easier to remove unwanted programs by clicking on the uninstall link than hunting through the remove programs control panel. Please think of the users.

I totally agree with Pandas.User easiness should be the prime concern rather than caring for Microsoft wishes.
