Google Chrome 12 On Mac Gets Animated Bookmarks Management

Looks like Google likes to do all animations / window behavior changes on Chrome’s Mac Dev version.  Remember the tabpose feature I told you about sometime back ? That was also a OSX only feature, and still remains so.

I don’t have a mac, but when I saw the following comment on the Google Chrome Releases Blog, I decided to find out what it i. “New and improved bookmark bar animations”

Daniel was there to help me ! He did a small screen capture of this new change, have a look here in the video. But before that, do try adding a bookmark, moving it around and deleting it on your bookmarks bar, you will feel the difference when you see the video.

I loved the animation while deleting a link from the bookmarks bar. Watch it closely. What do we call it ? A bob drop effect ? or a smoke effect ? :D

Anyone else here using Mac ? Try this out :D

    The some effect has been there always, but those animations are new.

    It’s a kind of annoying, when you try to drag bookmark to the tap bar to make a new tap, because the bookmark on the bookmark bar disappears when you drak it away, making the bookmark next to it to use the space that the dragged bookmark left. when i release the mouse, the dragged bookmark goes back to the same old place, but the other bookmark that took the empty space doesn’t move back and stays on top of the other bookmark.

      so, its forcing you to drop the new one to the right-end of the bookmarks bar and not anywhere else ?

    I forgot to mention – as a few comments suggested, that this feature was there in Chrome 9 I believe. I think the two extra dustballs might be new, but I’m not too sure.
    Unless they’ve updated the sounds then I can’t see what exactly is “new”
    However, I’ll check again tomorrow if possible, Chrome 9 (RockMelt) vs Chrome 12 Dev.

      may be they meant the dutballs actually, as update :D
