Chrome updated, adds auto-complete, management of "new tab", and much more

Note: This blog post is from 2009. Some content may be outdated--though not necessarily. Same with links and subsequent comments from myself or others. Corrections are welcome, in the comments. And I may revise the content as necessary.
I'm sure word will spread soon, but for those who've not heard,the Google Chrome browser has (finally) been updated, adding such desperately needed features as auto-complete, management of "new tab", and much more.

For more information, see this blog entry: this blog entry from someone on the Chrome team. It includes links to more details on each change, as well as a brief intro video.

I've been really missing the auto-complete feature, whereby if you fill out text fields on forms that you've entered before, it remembers. (This is not the form-filler of the google toolbar which you can use to fill in an entire page.) You just don't realize how much you use that simple auto-complete until you miss it. (And if you didn't miss it, well, you don't know what you're missing!) Of course, it can be disabled, but it's on by default in the new release.

The update is really fast. Again, see the other blog entry for more.

And I would suggest that if you have any comments like, "yeah, but they forgot xxx", etc., I'd say it would be more worthwhile for you to post those on the google team member's blog than to offer them here. Just sayin'. :-)

Comments
no offense google but you're lagging behind Firefox and it's great arsenal of extensions. take for example the issue of new tab - new tab king (http://www.newtabkin...) totally rocks your boat on that.
