    Google Chrome is getting tab search and improved antivirus integration


    Google is rolling out two new features that will allow you to visit browser pages directly from the address bar and easily navigate between open tabs.

    The company is testing a new feature called ‘Tab Search’ that will allow you to easily locate your open tabs. In addition, there are plans to improve Chrome’s integration with antivirus software on Windows 10.

    Google is also working on a new actionable address bar to help you open browser settings by typing keywords.

    As the name suggests, the ‘actionable address bar’ will allow users to perform specific browser actions. For example, you can type ‘Clear browsing data’ or ‘Edit passwords’ to clear your browsing data (cache, cookies, history, etc) and manage your saved passwords respectively.

    The actionable address bar is currently rolling out to Chrome 87 on Windows and other platforms, but you can turn it on manually by following these steps:

    • Open Chrome://flags menu.
    • Search for “Omnibox suggestion button row” and “Omnibox Pedal Suggestions”.
    • Enable the flags and relaunch the browser.

    The new actionable address bar might also come to Microsoft Edge in near future, at least via the experimental flags menu.

    As we mentioned above, Google is also working on a new Tab Search feature for Chrome browser. This will allow you to search for open tabs directly from the browser’s window, as shown in the screenshot below.

    Once enabled, it will add a search field to the tab row and you’ll gain access to a search box. The search box can be easily accessed using your mouse or using a keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + Shift + E.

    Chrome to get better antivirus integration


    For Windows 10, Google is working on a new feature that will allow Chrome to function smoothly when your third-party antivirus software is configured to scan local storage.

    In a commit, Google noted that Windows 10 antivirus programs and other scanners may briefly lock new files. This approach can lead to frequent problems when you’re saving bookmarks and other files using Chrome.

    A new Chrome attempts to deal with this by retrying the racy ReplaceFile step a few times.

    “This is only done on Windows because that is hoped to be the only place where it happens,” Google said.

    As we reported last week, Google is also experimenting with a new feature that will reduce memory usage on Windows 10 by allocating resources correctly.

    Google Chrome Crahses and suspended in task manager

    Hi GSsswuw8,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Could you please help me with the below information:

    1. Do you have any antivirus installed on the computer?
    2. Are you aware of making any changes to the computer or browser prior to the issue?

    This issue is because of profile data corruption on google chrome or because of cookies, extensions, plugins and History. I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below to resolve this issue.

    Method 1: Rename Google chrome file.


    Before proceeding I would suggest you end all the task related to Google Chrome from task manager.

    Step 1: Rename Chrome User Data file.


    1. Press Windows and
      E key together on your Keyboard.
    2. Navigate to %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome.
    3. Search for User data folder. Rename this folder to UserData.old
    4. Open the chrome now and check if it is working.

    Note:
    The new user data folder will be created automatically, but
    new profile will not have any of your previous data in it. To access the data back, try signing out and signing in back to the application. Or you have to manually copy the data from old profile.

    Step 2: Copy the previous data to New Profile.


    I would suggest you end all the task related to Google Chrome from task manager.
    Then follow the steps mentioned below:

    1. Press Windows and
      E key together on your Keyboard.
    2. Navigate to %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\UserData.old\Default.
    3. Open a new tab and navigate to: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default. (Make sure this is the new user data folder)
    4. Now copy the file one by one, once the copy is done. In-between Reopen Chrome browser and check if there is issue same issue.
    5. If the issue reoccurs, then the culprit is one of the file copied above.

    Method 2:
    Troubleshoot on google chrome.

    Note: The Uninstall and Reinstall option might reset security settings or privacy settings that you added, this will also clear the history, favorites, cookies and password. We recommend
    that you note these sites and settings before you use the Reset on chrome.

    I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned in the article on
    Fix Chrome if it crashes or won't open.


    Hope it helps.
