Chrome vs. Firefox — Round 1

The address bar in Firefox is named the “Awesome Bar”, and for a good reason. Aside from some occasional stuttering, it does an amazing job putting what I want most just at the top. Unfortunately, Firefox has so many other problems that I’ve abandoned it in favor of Google Chrome.

The one thing that I miss the most is the Awesome Bar. There are probably 10 pages that I revisit every day over and over again. In Firefox, I just typed in a word from their title, and up would come the link. In Chrome, I’m lucky if the link even appears in the list of available options. Usually I have to move down to the final “see all pages in history”, for which my desired page is almost always the top link.

Did Mozilla patent their frecency algorithm or am I just missing Chrome’s special brand of awesome-ness?
