In the News NetApplications has released its latest browser market share figures, and these figures show that Chrome has overtaken Safari as the number three browser worldwide, behind Internet Explorer and Firefox. IE, by the way, continues to lose popularity rather fast.

True. It was indeed a nice feature when IE introduced it (after tweaking it use Google). I did miss it when I switched to the Mac.

Chrome's location bar enhances it, if you want, live suggesting domains and keywords as you type.

Although after getting some, I long for more: Inquisitor-like live results for web pages (title+fragment) as well as information like "weather in Barcelona", "10 USD in RMB", "sqrt -1" or "define:Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious").

So it's the combination of Google Search on the internet side and polished implementation on the local browser side. I'll have to look at that more then.

No there actually is more. the chrome location bar spots a generic search feature, it recognizes search forms in a webpage, for example http://dict.leo.org. Once that page has been loaded once to search for a translation is as easy as entering dic[autocomplete]+TAB and a word.
