Chrome Dev Channel Build Brings Back Jumplists In Windows 7, Betters IE8

For those who like to live on the (tech) edge and prefer to use the developer builds of the Chrome browser on Windows 7 might have noticed the absence of Jumplists in the previous update. Jumplist is a Windows 7 feature that allows quick access to certain application features from the icon in the  taskbar. The previous version had removed Jumplists altogether, however the latest update in the dev channel ver brings back Jumplists and has added support for launching recently closed tabs, something that none of the other browsers support as of now. The addition is quite handy and might be introduced by newer builds of other browsers. Screen shot:


Chrome still does not support tab previews for Windows 7.
