Why google chrome does not provide a GoTo Link button like in IE, Firefox, etc.?
And if this is because of the simple & modern design concept than why does other browsers still have GoTo Button?
Chrome used to have a "go button", which was removed in Google Chrome 6.0.437.1 (dev) - June 2010. You can read about some of the motivation on the issue tracker, although there isn't a lot of information available. It seemed to coincide with a revamp of their omnibox, and the combining of the reload and stop buttons into one button.
To quote from the issue tracker:
Subsequently, someone logged a "bug" to bring the "go button" back. The removal seemed to have upset users. The official response by the person involved with UI decisions was:
The issue was closed with a status of "Won't fix".
I did notice that someone developed an extension to reintroduce the "go button" shortly after it was removed, but I'm not sure if that extension is compatible with newer versions of Chrome.
The above answers were not useful. Sometime we dont have the keyboard handy. (Have people not heard of wireless keyboards I wonder :)
This is what did the trick for me. If anyone lands on this page because they were using just the mouse to browse and the the cat was sleeping on the BT/Wireless keyboard
