Chromium 13 Gets “Restrict Instant To Search” And Better Multi-Profile UI

Google Chrome is growing day by day, not only its market share but also its version number. Two and half a year back Google Chrome got its version.1 and today it has reached a version number which Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera did not able to reach it even after 10 years of existence.

Only browser which is somewhere near Chrome version is Opera with its new build version called Opera next.

Well speaking about Google, it never stopped mesmerizing their users with some great innovation in its best Chrome browser. As and when we get new version of Chrome browser, Google shows some interesting features which forces users to at least try it once.

Same way, Google has added few more experimental features under about:flags page in Chromium 13.

Restrict Instant To Search

The most interesting feature which Google added to Chrome 6 was “OmniBox”. As you all Chrome users know, whenever you start typing something on Chrome address bar (which is called as omnibox) Chrome either searches for that with Instant Google Search or it will try checking for the same phrase in history of websites you visited.

But now Google even gives you an addition feature to restrict the instant to only Google search. This means whatever users type on omnibox, Chrome will not search the phrase in browser history. This will surely be helpful for someone with limited data plans.

Hope this feature will get added in settings page of Chrome in upcoming versions of Chrome.

Better Multi-Profile UI

Google is trying to make a browser which works in PC and Tablets similarly. Google started with multiple sync option in its Chrome OS way back and started experimenting same in the browser version (Chromium 12 build).

Chromium 12 UI was not showing the instance of Chrome browser which you are using is synced to which profile.

But now, Chromium 13 build added a small drop-down on top-right side of browser. This dropdown shows “not signed in” when your browser is not synced with any of the Google profile. When you are synced it displays Google profile ID. And now user can even create a new Google Profile from dropdown.

New About Chromium Pop-up

Well the latest version of Chromium has got a new about pop-up. The redesigned version of About Chromium displays which platform of developer build user is testing.

As an avid Chrome browser user we expect these features to get added in next version of Chrome.
