    Default Multi-row tabs

    Just wanted to say if a plugin like Tab Mix Plus, which allows powerful tab management (especially multi-row tabs), were to come out for the Google Chrome, you would have another convert on your hands. But for now, for my purposes, the Chrome can't be used at least as the main browser. I do see a huge potential, and I just love the look of the browser.

    I just wanted to second this opinion.

    If Chrome supported multi row tabs as well as mouse gestures, I'd completely convert to using Chrome. Until then, it just becomes a secondary browser that doesn't get much use.

    I was wondering, can you move the tabs? Like move them from the top of the chrome window to the left, right side, bottom?

    Same problem with me. I'd shift to chrome immediately if it had tabmixplus plugin. Good enough, there's auto pager for chrome now.

    Wow, all this time and Chrome still doesn't have decent tab management?

    Wow, so little time and Chrome already has 6.4% market share worldwide while all the other browsers loose share... they must be doing something right, no?

    When the alternative is a bulky slow browser like Firefox where you can do exactly all the stuff you seem to want I find the tab management of Chrome perfect...but opinions may vary.

    You ever think that some of that 6.4% may be people like myself that install Chrome every few weeks to see if *maybe* there is some chance that the two things that are keeping me from switching have been addressed:

    1 - Better tab management (multi-row is a must)
    2 - The hooks required for someone to be able to write a NoScript like extension have been added

    Those are two HUGE deal breakers. On the other hand, I will run this build for a few days (and probably cause the Chrome user base to go up), just to see if I am missing anything.

    While I would LOVE multi-row tabs, as I usually have 20 tabs open ant any one time, it's not a deal breaker for me.

    What is a deal breaker for me, though, is the lack of a correctly functioning Greasemonkey and the lack of an extension that allows for the streaming of downloads (like OpenDownload/RunDownload on Firefox that makes it act like IE and Opera), because it's annoying to have to save everything to my computer just to delete it a minute later when I'm done with it.

    However, I do use Chrome for general browsing, because it's quick and not clunky... and because my AVG Internet Security 2011 toolbar for Firefox is having problems, causing the browser to stop responding every now and then.

    When I want to download something or run an EXE, I just open IE for a minute... and when I go to a site I use Greasemonkey on (like Facebook, to see if anyone's deleted me) I jump on Firefox for a minute.

    Other than that, Chrome is my main browser... even though it doesn't have what I want/need, it suffices because of its speed.
