Chrome's About:Labs Page Lists Experimental Features

It used to be that with Chrome, you could only enable experimental features (like moving tabs to the side) by manually adding flags to the shortcut. Now, dev build users can enable them from the new about:labs page.

If you're running the dev build but still itching to try even more experimental (and possibly buggier) features, just type in about:labs in Chrome's address bar to see a list of experimental features available in the build. Currently, the list only has one feature: either Tabs on the left if you're on Windows, or Tab Overview (an Expose-like gesture that shows your open tabs) if you're on a Mac. We don't know if the lists are likely to get longer, since Google's updating Chrome every six weeks, but it's nice to have if you don't feel like manually typing in commands. Thanks Dodge!

    All I need is a labs plugin to let me select/enter a relative profile path so I can make Chrome portable (no I don't want to use a launcher app)
