    It isn't logical at all. If you work on a car do you expect to have all car tools merged into one big tool?

    I agree LucVN. Adding everything into the browser will lead only to an over-bloated and slow browser like Firefox. Chrome is sleek and fast, and turning into another Firefox in terms of bloat will mean nobody will bother using it. After all, why change when the only thing in the end is the look of it?

    Taken to the extreme, if all applications are merged then we'd only need one massive application for everything. It might take ten minutes to load, and two minutes just to switch tabs to do something different, but hey, what cool!

    Nobody would try to merge a motorcycle with a fish tank, so just use each tool for its own job, and keep the tools small and fast. Complication for its own sake is nothing more than enthusiastic stupidity.

    I do a lot of work with message boards and a good FTP client is an essesential part of my work, which is why I use FireFox with FireFTP, FirePHP, and FireBug. I can do ALL of my work in ONE browser and hardly ever have to see my desktop. Dont get me wrong, I do like Chrome, its fast, easy to use and I love the way you can customize the way it looks and works, but for doing board/web work IMHO its just not feasible to use 3-4 different programs/windows to find what I need quickly.
    For me and what I need, Chrome is not much more than a 'Nice' browser to check my work with. Until Chrome adds a couple of these plugins for us dev/admins FireFox will be my primary working browser,,,YES its slow to load, but works wonderfully once opened, and the tools makes my job sooo much easier

    I think you've hit the nail on the head there ShrtCut. I can see your point about flicking from one browser tab to another to do the kind of tasks you're talking about, but not that many people do such work. I maintain a couple of sites I constructed in Drupal 6, and I use a browser alongside FileZilla - each is fast, created for exactly the tasks it performs, and does it very well indeed. Switching between one and the other is simplicity itself with a mere keypress.

    Personally, I hope Google and the Chromium team keep pulling things out of Chrome so that it continues to be the fastest and slickest browser there is. After all - and I'm not being sarcastic here - if anyone wants everything plus the kitchen sink all in one, and doesn't care about sluggishness, Firefox will still be around and dragging its heels for a long time yet.

    Maybe it's just that I've worked in very specialised areas over the years, and have seen how over-complication can ruin a project, that I don't care for the 'add everything you can' idea. Call me Mr. Analogy, but you wouldn't pay for a Porsche 911 Turbo and then ask the workshop to give it higher ground clearance and knobbly tyres so you can go off-road in it, would you..?

    I guess if people can write extensions without demanding that the innards of Chrome be added to so it can perform all kinds of unplanned functions then fine, no harm done. But if people keep demanding functionality that requires more code bloat which affects other aspects of it, then they'll be helping to slowly but surely kill an amazing browser. If you disagree, look at where Firefox was a few years ago, and what people were saying about it; amazing, fastest browser on earth, etc. And what are those same people saying about it now..?

    Well, just like ff users, you can always choose which extensions to use.
    I only use chrome for building themes and testing code.
    ff is my browser of choice then, now and until chrome can compete with extensions.

    fireftp is the second add-on I install, as soon as I install ff on a system.
    Adblock+ is the first. the third and last add-on is fasterfox.
    I don't install themes or extensions that I may use one day, just the ones I use everyday.
    And ff starts fairly quick for me, and is just as fast as chrome (neither are as fast as Opera, but both are faster than IE7 or IE8).

    But back to the topic, I am anxiously waiting for a ftp extension for chrome.
    I've become so used to having my ftp client (fireftp) integrated into my browser, that I refuse to work it any other way.

    Leverage chrome's javascript engine to run the FTP.
    This satisfies both the desire to have a simple and fast browser as well as wanting to do anything and everything in the browser

    I am using FireFTP - The Free FTP Client for Mozilla Firefox and Cuteftp, but I also like also the drag n drop ftp client by Microsoft.

    try it Microsoft ftp client.
    open windows explorer, in the address bar type

    ftp://your_host_username:your_host_password @ your_domain_name.com

    and you will be directed to your host document root.

    I hope this helps

    Thank

    Firefox I think has made a turn for the worst and that is why I am here now.

    I noticed that Chrome is indeed less bloated and very sleek . But have a few questions I guess in respect to Security , Storing of passwords etc.. as firefox could be exploited simply by stealing the hash files. This can be further stumped by a master password. Which Encrypts the hash files based on a master password etc. What sort of assurance do we get from chrome that it is looking after this information.

    This of course leads to the next part of the Venture in relations to the Fire-FTP/BUG/PHP and so-forth. Fireftp was carefully integrated into the firefox browser as an 'addon' that it also uses the password cache of firefox. (Which can only be accessed if you know the master-password) ...// if set of course

    Some-how I always felt a bit safer knowing that all the passwords for both general browsing as-well as ftp'ing were contained in one storage pot.

    I use Filezilla and yes it is an excellent tool as well. But I always found FireFtp to be a-lot faster and easier option. Although it was lacking a couple of minor features and such it is a quick way to get something done on the spot.

    perhaps if there is a (portable firezilla) and a linker to the Chrome 'Dash-Board' , like an icon or some-thing would bring this one home for myself.

    Perhaps they are already looking at making one for Chrome @ at the Fireplace.

    Another thing that has attracted me more recently is FireBug. It is an invaluable tool along with the web-developers toolbar it is simply the best ninja sword I have found yet. And although Chrome is running what is considered to be a Lite version I anticipate that it will be heavy enough to do what I need it to do.

    Hoping that it does

    Another tool which was quite handy was the ColorZilla addon .

    Maybe one day there could be a Developers Chrome Browser (Jam Packed with the best tools for developers)...

    Chrome is still fairly a new browser so give it time as im sure google has been working on wicked updates on the next version will allow programmers to go nuts on extensions including chromeFTP

    thanks

    Fine then. At least allow ftp:// URLs to open an external application such as FileZilla. I deal with FTP hyperlinks all the time; with Chrome, I am forced to copy, parse, and paste parts of the hyperlink into different fields. In Firefox and IE this pain in the butt is not necessary.

    Is that a good enough reason for those of you who can't IMAGINE other people having different needs than you? I understand no one is obligated to implement a feature just because I want it.

    But people tend to poo-poo/be condescending toward people requesting a feature that they deem "unnecessary", telling them they're wrong to want the feature... it's a huge pet peeve of mine.

    Thanks for that this is all i need

    In my opinion they should make separate versions of chrome so users that want a fast browser download a version such as Google Chrome Fast, this would be a stock version with no possible plugin options.

    Then they could have a Google Chrome standard version allowing to add what ever plug-ins you feel are needed.

    Finally they could have a Google Chrome Advanced Download this would come stack packed with all the possible features/plug-ins and a lengthy installation process letting you fully customize what is enabled/disabled.

    There you go fellas problem solved no need to squabble :P

    Now if only a google chrome rep would read this post. Yeah right!
