Chrome 12 includes support for Ubuntu's Unity global menu
The latest stable release of Google's Chrome web browser adds experimental support the Unity global menu bar found in Ubuntu 11.04 "Natty Narwhal". Once the feature is enabled, the WebKit-based browser's Application Menu will appear at the top of the user's screen rather than at the upper area of the application's window. This is similar to Mac OSÂ X, but on Unity the same space is also used for the display of the applications title; to see the menus, the user needs to move their mouse pointer into the menu bar area before the menu is displayed.
In Chrome 12, users can access the experimental feature by typing
about:flags into Chrome's Omnibox URL bar and clicking "Enable" under the setting for "Experimental GNOME menu bar support". The change will go into affect after restarting the browser.
