I hate the "normal way of browsing" in linux that forces you to triple click to select the whole navigation bar content. I can easily change this in Firefox's about:config changing the boolean to parameter "one click selects all" to true. What about Chromium - Google Chrome? Is there a trick or a workaround?

An easy workaround is to use ctrl+L instead. Then you don't even need to move the mouse cursor to the navigation bar.

You can also just hit F6 (if you're too lazy to press CTRL+L).

Also ALT+D it's faster and simpler.
