Default Google Chrome Question

I've been trying Google Chrome out, but one little item bugs me. In Internet Explorer, if I am reading a blog and come across links I would like to check out I right click on each of them and save them to my favorites so that I can check them out at a later time. I didn't see that option in Google Chrome. Is there a way to add the link to favorites without opening the link first?

Never mind. Solved it. Once I get over these little quirks of difference maybe I can judge how well I like Chrome.

Google Chrome doesn't work with all internet Softwares. Like Virus protections. That also goes for Firefox.

IE is harder to use. I think anyway.

My Internet Explorer is not working properly on my computer, so I have had to start using Chrome.

The thing I don't like about Chrome is that you cannot "pin" your favorites list to the side and keep it open all the time. You have to open the "bookmarks" and scroll through to access it, or keep the bookmarks on the top on the bookmarks bar, which is also a pain to scroll through.

Other than that, I guess Chrome works okay. I really don't notice that it is that much faster than IE, which some have said it is.

No problem. I have the most frequently used links always visible on my bookmark bar next to "Favorites". Instead of saving an URL to Favorites, save it to Bookmarks Bar.

Gypsy, I am ooold and don't like change, lol. My favorites list on IE is huge, and I always kept it open and pinned on the left side. I used it constantly every time I was on my computer.

The bookmarks bar on Chrome is okay to list just a few sites, like SCS, FB and Google+, but would never hold the number of places I'm used to having instant access to on my old favorites list which displayed along the side of my screen.

My daughter is pretty computer savvy and has promised to come see what she can do to "fix" my Internet Explorer.

I've got 14 links on the bookmarks bar besides FAVORITES, and I suppose there would be room for quite a few more if I abbreviated the names.

Okay, I'll regroup and give it a shot. I'm really trying to like Chrome since my IE is messed up.
