Try Out Chrome’s Space-Saving, Hidden URL Bar In The Canary Build

Netbook users rejoice: Google Chrome’s Canary build recently added a new feature that completely hides the URL bar for serious vertical space savings. It’s still there, you just have to click on a browser tab and it’ll drop down, floating over your webpage.

It isn’t perfect (as it doesn’t allow you to always see the URL you’re visiting), but it’ll be great on computers for which space is at a premium. This feature’s only available in the Windows builds of Canary, and it isn’t enabled by default. To enable it, just head to about:flags and toggle “Compact Navigation” on. Restart Canary, right click on the tab bar, then hit “Hide Toolbar” to use the compact version.
