One of the major feature in Windows 7 is the taskbar preview feature, its also an improvement and carry over from Windows Vista. But with the integration on web browsers the Taskbar preview extend the ability to preview each tab. IE 8 was the first bower to support this feature when Windows 7 first came out in early last January in Windows 7 beta. Soon after Firefox and Safari all claim to suppose the Windows 7 only feature, and Opera came shortly after. Now Chrome the most popular on raising browser has finally got the support of the Taskbar preview for tabs as well.
With that said, the Taskbar tab preview isn’t official yet, meaning it’s not intergraded in the stable build. You need to get the latest development build and that will have the taskbar preview build in if you run this in Windows 7.
As usual accept the agreement, and restart your chrome you should be all set. Since this is not the stable build for public release, you will experiences more frequent crashes if you browse some intense resources driven websites.
This is a setup forward for the actual support for the future stable build. Also keep in mind that, you might also experience the preview thumb doesn’t fully display the content, just like what you might see in firefox. The spinning wheel will appear from time to time.
Download the dev Chrome 5 and give it a try.
