    Autocomplete is coming. It's in the current development tree.

    Default Bookmarklet for Highlighting

    Check out the javascript under "google highlighting" at "iamcal"

    Or you can just create a new bookmark named "Highlight" and copy and paste this script:

    javascript:var gtc = '#000000'; var glc = new Array('#ffff66','#a0ffff','#99ff99','#ff9999','#ff66ff'); function init_google(){ var pat = /google\./i; if (pat.exec(document.referrer) != null){ var u_p = document.referrer.split('?'); if (u_p[1]){ var u_a = u_p[1].split('&'); for(var i=0; i<u_a.length; i++){ var kv = u_a[i].split('='); if (kv[0] == 'q'){ g_g(d_u(kv[1])); return; } } } } } function d_u(url){ return unescape(url.replace(/\+/g,' ')); } function g_g(te){ te = te.replace(/\"/g,""); var t_s = te.split(' '); var c = 0; for(var i=0; i<t_s.length; i++){ h_g(t_s[i], document.body,glc[c]); c = (c == glc.length-1)?0:c+1; } } function h_g(te, container, color){ var t_l = te.toLowerCase(); for(var i=0; i<container.childNodes.length; i++){ var node = container.childNodes[i]; if (node.nodeType == 3){ var data = node.data; var d_l = data.toLowerCase(); if (d_l.indexOf(t_l) != -1){ var n_n = document.createElement('span'); node.parentNode.replaceChild(n_n,node); var res; while((res = d_l.indexOf(t_l)) != -1){ n_n.appendChild(document.createTextNode(data.substr(0,res))); n_n.appendChild(c_n_g(document.createTextNode(data.substr(res,te.length)),color)); data = data.substr(res + te.length); d_l = d_l.substr(res + te.length); } n_n.appendChild(document.createTextNode(data)); } }else{ h_g(te, node, color); } } } function c_n_g(child, color){ var node = document.createElement('span'); node.style.backgroundColor = color; node.style.color = gtc; node.appendChild(child); return node; };init_google();

    Do a google search. Select a link and then click the bookmarklet.

    To remove the highlights click the reload button

    If you're asking for what I think you are, "highlight on page" is actually in the current beta branch, version 1.0.154.43. Hit CTRL+F to bring up the in-page search and type away. It'll highlight as you type. There are buttons to cycle through the hits, too.

    Unhappy Google toolbar

    What I miss from the google toolbar is online google bookmarks, which I'm not sure how to enable and use as easily as with the toolbar.

    MartinS, one of my biggest issues with using Chrome was not having access to all of the online google bookmarks that I had saved over time. All you need to do is pull up your google bookmarks and export them, then when it asks you, save them where you want them to be saved. Then pull up Chrome and import your bookmarks from the saved file.

    I'm not sure if there's an easier way, but that's how I did it and it has made life much easier

    Default Google Toolbar not in Google Browser



    It would seem pretty obvious to have this, from the previous entries looks like a couple of things have been overlooked.

    1. you are suggesting users add lots of javascript to do what the google toolbar does for you

    2. you don't have google bookmarks! I spend all my time consolidating bookmarks into one place so i can use across multiple PCs and browsers and now can't use in a browser created by the people who did the bookmark tool!

    3. SEO tools are not available in chrome.

    Now a new browser might take a while to catch up with the competition in terms of features, however to miss out your own toolbar seems strange.

    reasons 2 & 3 mean i cannot use chrome.

    Default I miss my widgets

    So far, all I've seen anyone complain about are links and bookmarks -- I miss my widgets! I had a search widget, a dictionary widget, and a wikipedia wizard on my google toolbar -- type a word or phrase and the definition or explanation was a single click away.

    I understand that you can search from the toolbar, but my dictionary lookup and wikipedia lookup are now at least 2 clicks away, maybe 3.

    I'm not happy about that.

    Typing 'wiki myquery' into the address bar is too difficult?

    Here is a script for highlighting. Sorry I don't know the source. Just reload the page to remove.

    javascript:var gtc = '#000000'; var glc = new Array('#ffff66','#a0ffff','#99ff99','#ff9999','#ff66ff'); function init_google(){ var pat = /google\./i; if (pat.exec(document.referrer) != null){ var u_p = document.referrer.split('?'); if (u_p[1]){ var u_a = u_p[1].split('&'); for(var i=0; i<u_a.length; i++){ var kv = u_a[i].split('='); if (kv[0] == 'q'){ g_g(d_u(kv[1])); return; } } } } } function d_u(url){ return unescape(url.replace(/\+/g,' ')); } function g_g(te){ te = te.replace(/\"/g,""); var t_s = te.split(' '); var c = 0; for(var i=0; i<t_s.length; i++){ h_g(t_s[i], document.body,glc[c]); c = (c == glc.length-1)?0:c+1; } } function h_g(te, container, color){ var t_l = te.toLowerCase(); for(var i=0; i<container.childNodes.length; i++){ var node = container.childNodes[i]; if (node.nodeType == 3){ var data = node.data; var d_l = data.toLowerCase(); if (d_l.indexOf(t_l) != -1){ var n_n = document.createElement('span'); node.parentNode.replaceChild(n_n,node); var res; while((res = d_l.indexOf(t_l)) != -1){ n_n.appendChild(document.createTextNode(data.substr(0,res))); n_n.appendChild(c_n_g(document.createTextNode(data.substr(res,te.length)),color)); data = data.substr(res + te.length); d_l = d_l.substr(res + te.length); } n_n.appendChild(document.createTextNode(data)); } }else{ h_g(te, node, color); } } } function c_n_g(child, color){ var node = document.createElement('span'); node.style.backgroundColor = color; node.style.color = gtc; node.appendChild(child); return node; };init_google();
