    Omkar, I loved Google Chrome, especially its Super Drag feature. No other browser, including Firefox has this magnificent function!

      Absolutely right. This is one of the best feature in Chrome Plus. We are expecting many more features to come in Google Chrome, including advanced support for addons.

    GreenBrowser (Morequick.com) has had mouse gestures more customisable than Chrome Plus since 2002! Its a much better and more customisable browser than any other. The latest versions have features undreamed of by more mainstream browsers.

    have you ever tried ChromePlus yourself?

    1st off, u dont have to double click the close button to close a tab, it closes in a single click….. the feature means you can double click a tab itself to close that page…. and it wasnt made to prevent mis-closings, its was just meant to make the ux simpler… u have a dedicated restore tab button to open closed tabs…

    mouse gestures aren’t just those which were seen in ff and opera… they are highly customizable n efficient in chromeplus, its just different….

    super-drag doesnt just mean u can drag links to open in new tabs…. it even allows u to drag random text and search it with your default search engine….

    its got many other little features that can prove to be pretty useful…

    please don’t review stuff which you havent even tried urself….
