• Instant Pages on Google Chrome

    A few weeks ago, we announced that Google’s Instant Pages feature would be available to our Chrome beta channel users. Today, we’re happy to let you know that Instant Pages is on by default in the latest stable version of Chrome. This means that sometimes when you click a Google search result in Chrome, the page will appear to load much faster than before. How much faster? In the video below, you can see a side by side comparison of Chrome with and without Instant Pages enabled.

    We’re also really excited to announce that print preview is available for Windows and Linux users in the latest stable version of Chrome. (Hold tight Mac users, it’s coming!) Many people have been asking for print preview in Chrome for a long time, and we wanted to do it right, using our fast built-in PDF viewer and an easy “print to PDF” option. Thanks for your patience as we’ve plugged away on this feature.

    In addition to adding new features to Chrome, we’re continually working to improve our old favorites. The omnibox, Chrome’s combination search box and address bar, has gotten much smarter in the latest release, making it even easier for you to get back to pages you’ve visited before. Just type part of the page's address or title and look in the dropdown for matching pages from your history. Enjoy!

      I may have to give them a second chance here fairly soon. Not because I am so "Type-A" that I can't wait 1.2 seconds for a page to load, but it seems they are pushing to create some new features.

      Print preview and print to PDF are both pretty big deals to me, going to go play with it now

      So those pages riddled with spyware will automatically download without my knowledge? Great! I'll go get Chrome right now.

      I take it back, Chrome's new PDF generator is HORRIBLE, even makes NitroPDF's page-->PDF generator (which I've never liked) look good by comparison. By the way, if you can't get the print preview to work, it's because you have to have AdobePDF disabled.
