Try New Tab Redirec and also Speed Dial.

You can achieve this by deleting your cookies... but it's a hassle.

Something that bothers me about Chrome is how it seems to cache the source or something. I notice that if you change a dynamic HTML page using a GET or POST method using a form, and then check the source, it displays the source from the original HTML page instead of the modified version of it. I know, this is a pretty insignificant peeve... but yeah.

True, as does Firefox with the NoScript plug-in, but it remains to be seen what companies will actually start to pay attention to those requests.

I don't use it myself, I just posted that because I'd come across it a couple hours ago.

 I'm just happy that Opera bounced back with 11. 01

20 grand not enough to entice hackers to crack Google Chrome

By Byron Acohido, USA TODAY

Contestants participating in the Pwn2Own 2011 hacking contest at the CanSecWest cybersecurity conference this week in Vancouver, British Columbia, cracked into Safari 5.0.3 and Internet Explorer 8, the latest, most protected versions of Apple's and Microsoft's Web browsers.

No one even bothered to attempt to hack Google's Chrome browser, even with the search giant offering a $20,000 prize.

I installed the latest beta of Google Chrome and have been using it all day. I think it is finally ready for prime time. It now has the features that I need to make it useful to me anyways. It now can remember previous tabs when re-opened, lets you set minimun and custom font sizes and can remember passwords and import bookmarks etc. 
I had quit using Firefox 3 & 4 because it was bloated and slow compared to Safari 5 so I have been using that til now. Google Chrome at least so far seems more responsive than Safari and displays some website better. So I will continue to try it out and maybe make it the default browser...

  I love it!  And it's streamlined to give you more viewing area.  I also love that you can Google search in the URL field.
