    Question A new zealous convert to Chromium has some questions:

    I have been using Chromium in Linux since it has been stable but recently started using it more than Firefox. There are few things that are confusing

    When i type the first part of the domain of a bookmark, sometimes it doesn't come up but it does all the time with atomic bookmarks? I know the bookmark is there but chrome on its own isn't finding it. If I type in 'life' looking for lifehacker it doesn't show up but if I type in the title such as 'tips and downloads...' it shows up.

    Does Chrome have a list of programs that you can choose to open up certain types of files or does it rely on the operating systems default program?

    Is Chrome able to show me my recent bookmarks because at times I forget what I bookmarked and need to go back and look.

    Google Chrome/Chromium is getting better and better with each release. The browser wars bring out the best products for the users.

    Pretty sure it can only use the system default.

    Theres a couple of extensions for this, pick one....

    ....I use the second one because it lets me delete the bookmark after I get around to checking it out
