First Google Chrome 5 offers a peek at future security settings
Unlike the case with Mozilla Firefox, it isn't always clear what design goals the Chrome team have in mind until a few builds down the road. So the first major changes we've seen to Chrome 5 are in the Tools/Options menu, specifically in the Under the Hood tab.
Under that tab, we've also found a prominent and curious link to Adobe Flash Player storage settings, which also has yet to be implemented.
The way one discovers that third-party extensions designed for Chrome 4 do not work in Chrome 5 is by clicking on their buttons to the right of the OmniBar, and watching nothing happen in response. There is now, however, a slider frame that lets you slide the (inoperative) add-ons back into a kind of drawer on the right, restoring space for the address bar, which can become cramped in a heavily-added-on environment.
