    That's what I have been doing, I thought there has to be a way of accessing your bookmarks that way you don't have to close out the other tab:supergrin::wavey:

    Mayor, In the top right you see something that looks like a wrench, click it and check always show book marks, may be other ways but this one works. I just click a new tab and they are there for your choosing.

    Is Chrome better than Firefox? I'm waiting for an excuse to jump ship.

    It's much faster and more stable.

    "CTRL+B" will bring up a row of your bookmarks just under the url bar ;)

    Yes, it's better. Whatever that means.

    I've been using chrome since it first came out, including the beta version. I've never had a problem with it, and have loved it since day one.

    My wife still uses IE, because she's stubborn. But that just makes it easier, she's got all her bookmarks and such, and I have mine.

    It doesn't hurt to try it. Check it out for yourself.

    For those interested, I love chrome. Switched right after it came off Beta and never looked back.

    I've been a truly devoted Firefox fan for years until late. It has been crashing on me. I also got a %$*&! virus recently. Probably not its fault, but.

    Whatever, It's driving me crazy. Started with Chrome last night. So far, so good.

    Very fast, and the screen is full of the webpage, not toolbars and junk.

    there should also be a little house icon to the left of the address bar, clicking that will refresh your current tab back to your home tab showing all your frequently visited web pages.

    Also should mention the Incognito window (cntrl+shift+n) or first option when you click the wrench.
    It saves no history or password input...you know, in case you didn't want your wife to know what sites you visited today or don't want terms you typed in the address bar to auto fill next time she's typing in po...ntiac or something.

    I'm just saying.
