I like many things about the Chrome browser. It starts up extremely fast. It has a nice interface and looks ahead of its time in comparison to Firefox. But, I still use Firefox.
One thing I love about Firefox is its smart bar, in which you type any term and it will search your history and pull up matching URLs and web-page titles. This doesn’t work as well in Chrome.
Let’s take a look. Click on the pics to see full-size.
In Chrome, I view an article in PCWorld called “Amazon Kindle Tablet Could Shake Up Tablet Wars”.
I close Chrome and reopen. I type “kindle”. I don’t get the article I just viewed.
Now I open Firefox and visit the same page. I close Firefox and reopen. I type in “Kindle”, and I see the site I just visited, 2nd from the top.
I personally like to be able to easily retrieve sites in my history. I’m surprised Google doesn’t exceed in this area.
