I dont think ringing the Chrome Developers to ask them to change stuff is an option i would go for.
No, but when there's nothing else you can do, it's worth a shot. Fire them an email. If 1000 people have the same problem, shrug, and say "they'll never listen to me", nothing will happen. If 1000 people shrug, fire off a quick email to Google, then forget about it - Google get inundated with emails making it very very clear the users want something. We can't send them 1000 emails for you :)
