It’s really awesome what can be done with the 3D CSS Transformations. For now the technique is webkit only and probably not mature enough for real production sites, but at least Chrome provides a platform to showcase the potential of 3D CSS. This could bring us very interesting websites in the future.

I worked out an idea that I had for a while, but never thought it was really feasible to build. A folded Google Maps map: Folded Google Map

Clear Browsing Data should use a modal dialog and not a properly integrated tabbed settings page when using Ctrl+Shift+Delete.

This Accelerator should open the Clear Browsing Data dialog like in older versions.
Just for Accelerator Ctrl+Shift+Delete!
