My complaint, though, is that Chrome too often fails to autocomplete the URLs I'm typing the way I expect it to. If I type in "goog," as expected and desired, Chrome autocompletes "google.com" in the location bar. But when I start typing "music.me," while Chrome dutifully starts listing suggestions based on sites I've been to, it requires that I tap the down arrow twice (or use the mouse) to get to the first suggestion and hit return, instead of doing the standard autocompletion that it does for "goog." In Safari, the "top hit" for an autocompleted URL suggestion always appears right in the URL bar. Google's autocompletion behavior seems unnecessarily inconsistent, and is hampered by the fact that suggestions frequently don't appear right in the location bar itself.
3. Downloads on the down-low. When you download files in Chrome, a 45-pixel tall bar overlays the bottom edge of your browser window. And it doesn't go away unless you close it manually. I can find no preference to disable this bar, and while I appreciate the aim of not popping another window open to handle downloaded files, I don't like the incessant claiming of valuable browser real estate.
4. Dragging can be a drag. Chrome's tabs live very high up in the application's window. You'll find about 11 pixels of available space if you'd like to click on the window itself, say, to drag it elsewhere on your screen. Misjudge by even a single pixel, and you'll start dragging the tabs themselves instead. With just half a dozen tabs open, you're forced to either try your luck in that narrow sliver above the tabs, or get dangerously close to the left-side window controls or the right-aligned "new tab" button. Boo.
5. Command and control. Chrome fails to implement two special Safari keyboard tricks which I've grown to reply upon. The first is Safari's "hold down the Command key while submitting a form" trick, which submits your form in a new tab. While I suppose most Safari users don't know about this shortcut's existence, it's an awesome, addictive one. Firing off multiple Amazon product searches in multiple tabs without ever leaving the one I'm on is an excellent feature, and Chrome disappointingly lacks it. Chrome similarly omits Safari's "hold down option while hitting return on a typed URL" trick, which automatically tells the browser to download the file at the location you've entered. If you're armed with only the URL of, say, an MP3 file, you must first visit the URL in Chrome, then right-click on the browser's custom player widget and choose "Save movie [sic] as..." to save it to disk.
