Enable ‘Instant’ site loading in Chromium daily build

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

The Chromium daily builds on Linux now offer up the option to instantly load websites as your enter the address in the URL bar.

The feature enables Google instant search – as you enter search terms Google search automatically updates with related items- via the ‘Omnibar’ as well as the auto-loading of URLs as you enter them.

Whilst this last feature is quite cool, for you no longer need to hit ‘Enter’ or click ‘Go’ after entering a website address as the site loads instantly, I did still find myself hitting the ‘Enter’ key out of habit.

You can enable the feature via ‘about:flags’.
