While Chrome is running, if you right click on it in the taskbar, you can see ‘Most visited’ sites, ‘Recently closed’ tabs and ‘Tasks’ in the jump list, which majority of users don’t use, since Chrome Mac and Linux versions have a fast profile switcher in the OS menu bar, Chromium team wants to have one in the Windows taskbar as well for Canary, that’s why Google has replaced most visited items with a list of profiles.
Since Windows doesn’t allow more than 10 items in a jump list, ‘Most visited’ has been replaced with ‘People’ (check the screenshot below).
Note: This is just an experiment, this feature may or may not ported to the stable channel of Chrome, check this bug for more information.
What’s your take on this change? Do you actually use this jump list to access or switch to your profile? Let us know in the comments.
