I'm earnestly trying to switch from Firefox to Chrome as my default
browser on Linux. The most glaring problem was the ugly font
rendering (see previous post), but I found a bug report that gave me
enough of a hint to fix it.
The next annoyance is middle-clicking into the browser doesn't load
the URL in the selection. I've used that gesture for 10+ years on
Netscape/Mozilla/Firefox, but in Chrome it does nothing. After
searching around, I found I can middle-click into the New Tab button
to get a similar effect.
This comment in
report made me laugh:

IMHO this solution so obscure that only those will find it, who are reading through
That was exactly how I found it.
