    Ugh. No. (Not even sure if I could, but I wouldn't!)

    I mean this genuinely (ie., not sarcastically); Why try to stuff your car with a TV, fridge, toaster, dishwasher, ironing board, bookcase, CD racks, bed, sideboard and pantry? You can, but what a mess. If you want a hundred extensions and don't mind sluggishness and ordinary browser design, there's Firefox.
    I agree, most extensions should just be for fixing minor annoyances, like this one

    Exactly. I've seen a lot of posts regarding the download bar just sitting there. There should be an option to turn it off (as you can use Ctrl+J to view downloads anyway), or a timer so it auto-hides after say, 20 seconds. Mind you, extensions can do a lot more than just remove annoyances, and I'm sure some good ones will be developed as time goes on. Though I wonder how long it will take before people make Chrome look as messed up, and trudge along, just like Firefox?

    Anyway, at least the stupid New Tab page tips and the bookmark sync can be switched off now.

    Does there happen to be any plugins that can take full page screenshots? I rather not use another program, or a 3rd party site to take them.

    Default Text Link Anyone?

    Has anyone used the Text Link extension for Firefox? It's pretty simple, very accurate and it would be fabulous if this could be created as a chrome plugin or preferable added into the Chromium core, but that's unlikely.

    I just use Ctrl+PrtSc, then paste into a graphic application and play about. There is a Chrome API function which grabs a screen shot of the current tab page;

    captureVisibleTab

    chrome.tabs.captureVisibleTab(integer windowId, function callback)
    Captures the visible area of the currently selected tab in the specified window.

    Parameters

    windowId ( optional integer )
    The target window. Defaults to the current window.
    callback ( function )
    Callback function

    If you specify the callback parameter, it should specify a function that looks like this:

    function(string dataUrl) {...});
    dataUrl ( string )
    A data URL of a JPEG encoding of the visible area of the captured tab. May be assigned to the 'src' property of an HTML Image element for display.

    It shouldn't be too hard to do a search and replace on the page source and linkify anything not set as a link. In fact, it's probably possible using a proxy filter with regular expressions (though I'd really struggle with something like that). Have a look at this post and ask around. There's probably someone who can write the regex for it, and it's simple to add it as a page filter.

    I am still surprised that there is no multi line tab bar...its the one feature I cant live without, as I have lots of tabs. I mean there is no option for tab display. (Multiline, Scroll, etc) So if you open a lot of tabs, boom you cant read anything on them. I would figure it would be easy to do since its mostly html...just figure out what code chrome uses for tab display and then edit it. Even if its not RIGHT below the tabs you could have it display under the shortcuts as an extra toolbar, vertically invert the graphic for the tab and then it would go on there seamlessly.

    Though I am not sure how to view the browser's code so I may just be making it sound a lot easier then it really is...still I am sure a lot of users would benefit from at least one type up multiple tab display option.

    Yeah Aka Gambit, you might love crap all over your windows, but the Chrome developers seem to disagree with you, and I do too. Chrome is made to be minimalist and kinda cool. If you want a million addons then use Firefox and stop blathering on about Chrome.

    And as to "can't live without", what bullshit is that? You can't live without food and water. A browser is nothing more than a temporary tool. If you can't live without a browser then you are seriously ****ed. Get a life.

    Well for one..calm down...seriously you are acting like I just shot your dog, take a chill pill.
    I don't wan't a whole bunch of crap...did I say I want this that and the other thing?
    NO...SO READ BEFORE YOU REPLY...for someone with a lot to say you read very little.

    I did not even ASK for anything. I was making an observation and seeing if anyone knew something about it.

    If you don't like having one simple feature added then move along and continue on ignoring the post, instead of being immature and trying to grow your e-*****.

    So instead of posting unintelligently and insulting people, just sit back and not sound like an idiot.

    Oh and for your information "can't live without" is a phrase commonly used to describe something or someone of which you would find difficult to go without having.

    So YOU my friend, should "Get a life.", instead of trying to boost your ego.
