Trying to like Chrome

Now that the Google Chrome browser is official for Linux and Mac, I've been trying to use it and like it. It's hard though. I keep looking for the tabs below the address bar, but Chrome decided to put them up higher. It's not a huge deal, but it's causes some friction. The other problem I noticed right away is when you get a bunch of tabs open, the tabs get really small, and the x button to close a tab is almost a full 1/4 of the entire tab. It's easy to click the x and close a tab when you don't mean to. In firefox this happens too, and the remedy is to click History->Recently Closed Tabs and get your tab back. No such option in Chrome. There is a list of recently closed pages, but if you click one of then, it doesn't open a new tab, it just switches the tab that you are on to the page in the history. Grr.
