_ users have the option to rearrange their tabs at the top of the browser page, as well as the "most viewed" pages displayed in the center of the screen. Users also have the option to drag a tab from one page, out to create a separate browsing page.
The OMNIBOX - Allows the user to use the web address bar not only to enter web page addresses, but also use it as a search enigine, which also happens to recognize favorite pages, bookmarked pages, and previously viewed pages. ( there is also an incognito option, where you may choose to not have your history recorded.)
Google Chrome was designed to be a faster, safer, and more efficient search engine, that allows you to monitor one search, while freely, and completely separately, running another document on the same page. * This has been helpful if there is a problem with one page opening, you can : a) pinpoint where the problem is coming from specifically b) you can illiminate it without having it affect the rest of the open pages/ documents.
