    Don't know, but Firefox has something like that for previously closed pages and previously visited pages, like back and forwards in the toolbar, and it is damn useful when I'm rapid-fire closing tabs and I accidentally close one or three too many or I'm navigating a tutorial that seems to offer up one page of information per tip.

    A back-forward cache has been added to allow instant navigation on previously-visited pages.
    So it uses twice the RAM now?

    The WebHID API for supporting human interface devices directly from the browser that may not otherwise be supported by the underlying operating system.
    So there will be drivers for devices in Chrome now?

    IMHO, the headline should be changed to Native File-System API. The way it reads I was expecting something about a ChromeOS developed file system, like Android with F2FS, and not an API for access permissions and whatnot.
