Chrome Extension I assume?

No. It actually is a Chromium feature that was backported from Chrome OS into mainstream Chromium. So was the Apps section and so was Pinned Tabs.

Hm. Chrome OS. There's something that probably won't take off. With the Unity interface, Gnome-Shell, KDE's Netbook Plasma, Maego(Meego? Maemo? wtf is it's name???) and other netbook interfaces (my netbook is just XFCE with certain things I feel are necessary). Chromium can do a lot of things and I don't think a full OS is needed.

Are you on a netbook or something? 800x480 is just tiny IMO...

Perhaps he downsized it for the size limit?

He is using the Liquorix kernel, which isn't good for netbooks...

Yeah, even my lappy's theme with all its Aero-like goodness (), isn't that over-the-top. The thing that's the most transparent is the terminal, and even then it's blurred...

Ummmmmmmmm.

I run a Asus EEEPC 701SD (tiny screen, yeah that is the resolution)

Liqourix kernels run quite well on this netbook if you look at my Conky file as far as temps and fan control. Aptosid 2.6.36 does not play well on this netbook though . udev errors on bootup and acpitemp for cpu breaks. It'll boot though and connect ok.

Using some Puppy Linux themes for Icewm. I run Fluxbox also on this machine.

Geez... Even my 2-year-old Acer Aspire One has a 1024x600 resolution. That's got to be a very cheap Eee PC if it has such a low resolution and small monitor.

I have a Acer Aspire One ZG5 also Kenny. Run Ubuntu 10.04 on it. This Asus was cheaper. But the bios on Acer sux because it won't boot SD cards with using a pendrive adapter. Also wifi card on it heats up and disappears after hours of use. I like my 2 Asus Netbooks (701SD and 900) better. They are better built IMO.
