googlechromelogoWhile has become my default browser, there is no lost love for and I have been using and talking about several which are really helpful in making my life more productive and helping me manage all my social networking in a single place.

Google Chrome on the other  hand is still in its infancy and there are lots of feature I would love to see in it. Guess they are solving the problems one at a time and have taken a cue from feature requests and added a much needed bookmark manager to the browser.

The new bookmarks manager in Chrome lets you search bookmarks, create folders, and drag and drop bookmarks to new locations. In addition to that you can also import and export bookmarks easily, so you will no longer require any external tool to perform that task.

If you are looking to import bookmarks from browsers like , Flock and Safari into Firefox you can read our guide on exporting bookmarks from browsers like IE, Firefox, Safari, Flock and Opera in a HTML format and import the bookmark file it into Chrome using the Bookmark manager.

In addition to this they have also made changes to the Pop-up blocker where earlier the pop-up blocker just minimized pop-up windows to the lower right corner of the browser window, create one ‘constrained’ window for each pop-up. In the latest version Google Chrome displays one small notification in the corner that shows the number of blocked pop-ups. A menu on the notification lets you open a specific pop-up, if needed.

All of these features are not available in the latest version of Google Chrome and you will have to be a bit braver and subscribe to the dev channel to get the latest development versions which include the new features.
