Google Chrome Logo Google has started testing a new "Unified Menu" in the latest developer channel (a.k.a. the Dev channel) releases of Chromium and Chrome. The new menu combines most of the options that were available in the page and wrench menus into a single item. To save space in Google's WebKit-based browsers, the updated menu uses a single line for the cut, copy and paste commands, as well as the zoom controls.

Users running the latest Chromium and Google Chrome dev builds can enable the feature by adding a command-line flag (--new-wrench-menu) to the application's shortcut. On Mac OS X systems, the current version 6.0.447.0 dev release of Chrome includes the unified menu by default.
