    Default Want to fully switch from Firefox but have a couple questions

    Is there a way to add a right-click context menu for plug-ins like the default firefox or do I have to always go up to the menu to access plug-ins (Evernote etc) ?

    Possible to change the download option to "always as where to download" like in firefox?

    For bookmarks is there an overview mode like ctrl-shift-b in firefox?

    Liking a lot in Chrome so far, but a few minor things like this are preventing me from fully using it. Thanks!

    You can choose to always choose where to download stuff by clicking the "wrench" icon, then choosing Options, selecting "Under the bonnet" along the top, and scrolling down to "Downloads".

    As for context menu stuff, that was recently added to Dev channel Chrome, but individual extensions must support it, and not too many do AFAIK.

    Bookmarks: Probably closest bet would be some extension. Ctrl+Shift+B will bring up the Bookmark Bar, and there's the Bookmark Manager (accessible through Wrench icon), but I'm not sure what the overview thing in Firefox is like, so don't know if either of those compare to what you mean...Check the Chrome Extension Gallery for bookmark extensions.

    EDIT: Something like this perhaps? : https://chrome.google.com/extensions...jdbcnhlkccnahe

    You have the right idea on the edit, here's what I've been using in Firefox and now Chrome for visual bookmarks: https://chrome.google.com/extensions...pgbbjdpbbkikmi
    The Chrome version is seriously limited though.

    What was tripping me up with the bookmark manager is ctrl-shift-b in firefox brings up the "manager" but in Chrome it brings up the toolbar (Had me thinking there wasn't a manager). Also, when I go to the wrench and access the bookmark manager directly 0 bookmarks show up inside manager, yet when I type:
    chrome://bookmarks in the address bar the manager comes up with the bookmarks. It's a known bug and I added to the log in google code.

    Hopefully, you'll be able to add more to the context menu soon.
