|Lack of "Customize Toolbar" mode|
|Project Member Reported by mkte...@gmail.com, Oct 10 2009||Back to list|
Chrome Version : 22.214.171.124 URLs (if applicable) : Other browsers tested: Add OK or FAIL after other browsers where you have tested this issue: Safari 4: OK Firefox 3.x: OK IE 7: IE 8: OK Opera: OK What steps will reproduce the problem? 1. Attempt to remove or rearrange Chrome's default toolbar buttons. 2. Attempt to move individual Browser Action buttons to the left of the Address Bar. What is the expected result? A "Customize Toolbar" mode, similar to other browsers, in which toolbar buttons (including individual Browser Actions) can be added, removed, and rearranged. What happens instead? Only the Home button can be enabled/disabled. Browser Actions are restricted to a zone on the right of the Address Bar. This makes certain customizations impossible (e.g., replacing Reload with a custom Stop/Reload button). Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if possible. Ben originally proposed such a system in Issue 1656 , but its title has become obsolete with the introduction of Browser Actions in Issue 22099 .

I just changed my default Mac browser to Google Chrome. My one big disappointment is the apparent inability to customize the browser toolbar. For example, I want to move the Reload/Refresh button after the URL field, where it appears in all of other browsers.

The funny thing is, I originally submitted this request so I could do the exact opposite, i.e. move Reload to the left side. Lucky for me, Chrome moved it there by default at some point. In your case, since extension buttons go on the right, it should be possible to add Reload, Stop, or Reload/Stop buttons via extension. I actually tried doing this once, but didn't finish. Might give it another shot, since it seems nobody else has created them, surprisingly.

I think I've gotten Reload and Stop working separately: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/reload/fcofhoajikoooeongdbjbgnjpmgehgja https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stop/kkeehnmfddjhlojogndpeaklfhaokkbn A combined button will be trickier though, so I might not get to it. Hope this helps!

Based on comments the concerns were addressed
agreed, I'm used to other browsers and prefer the refresh button on the right of the url. It's not that big a job to offer functionality to make for ease of usage. Not everyone is right (or left) handed, not everyone uses a language which reads from left to right and not everyone has the use of both hands. It's short-sighted to omit such a simple addition to making life easier.
Dude somebody put a wrong email.
