I use Chromium which is installed by default in SuperX. It gives me no problems so I don't feel the need to feed Google with anything unnecessarily by replacing it with their version.

One thing to note is that Adobe doesn't provide any more Flash updates for Linux since 11.2, only security fixes for 5 years. Chrome's built-in Flash is still being updated in all platforms. That doesn't really matter with HTML5 growth though.

Personally, I find installing and updating Chromium directly from the repository much more convenient. Everything works, including all my extensions/settings from Windows via profile sync. Chrome has some extras like built-in PDF, but nothing essential or worth the extra setup. Currently I use the Docs Online Viewer userscript for quick document viewing.

Although I believe you meant the close button (x) instead of minimize (-), this should be what you're looking for: Settings > On startup > Continue where I left off.

Here's an extension if you want more than that: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...bcdcpbko?hl=en

The default behaviour of Chrome, Firefox, and IE is the same for the (-) button: it minimizes to the taskbar.

What you've described in your previous post fits the (x) button, but now it seems to be the animation of (-). What does Chrome do differently when pressing (-)?

You have on the right or left depends on the OS , this buttoms (- + X)
The - should minimize page to the corner so when you open other pages you have access to the first page at least that's what i get in IE and Firefox,in chrome when i click the - buttom the page reverts to the google chrome app if i don't go to other page i can click again the chrome app and get the page back but if i choose other page and do not save that page loose it that's not good nor acceptable, it's not only me complaining about it that's why i don't want chrome in linux,people like the preety not the eficient that's why many people have chrome and not other browser,not me i like things the easier way other + x do what they suppose to do as in fox or IE
