Hey,

I was surfing through Chrome extensions and came across this screenshot: https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/ipnenhkngeiigfbhacdhadcnjjklhblm

If you notice in the top left hand corner there seems to be a dedicated gmail tab and google reader tab... I know it might only be a windows thing since extensions aren't available for mac yet, but how exactly do you do this? Is it an option or an extension altogether?

Tried a search but came up with squat.

'pinned tabs' I guess they must be in some of the windows development builds now, they are certainly integral to the chromium os builds I have been trying on my netbook.

This doesn't work on Mac Chrome yet, but in Windows you can get minitabs like that simply by dragging the tab all the way over to the left of the window.

Love the feature and can't wait for it to come to our version! :)

got it to work!

well... i downloaded chromium and you can pin tabs there.

I know that they figured out how to get pinned tabs to show up on startup for windows, so that they don't go away every time you close the chrome window, but is there any way to do this on mac?

It's be great to have the tabs already pinned to my gmail accounts when I start up.

Thanks!

P.S. Extensions work in chromium :)
