I've noticed that the Spotlight Search keyboard shortcut (cmd space) doesn't work if I'm running Google Chrome (12.0.742.122) as full screen application in Lion.

Is this a Chrome-related bug or is this inherent of some type of applications? Is there a way to fix it?

Chrome doesn't currently support Lion's full screen features. They are working on a version that does.

Until that is finished, you'll have to use Chrome's built-in full screen capabilities (not based on Lion's).

You can change the keyboard shortcut to enter that the same way you'd change any other (System Preferences-> Keyboard-> Keyboard Shortctus-> [+] button

Problem seems to be resolved in newer Chrome versions.

No such problem with Safari (just tried it). the way to fix it: just switch to safari :P it's the same webkit rendering engine as chrome (meaning it's the same speed) and now it's a whole lot nicer with some of the new lion features

Actually, Chrome uses many technologies that make it faster than Safari. People have reasons they use the browser they do. I don't think this really answers the question. –  Nathan Greenstein Jul 26 '11 at 2:46

One word: Safari misses Chrome's Omnibox. It's a dealbreaker for me (among other things). –  splattne Jul 26 '11 at 5:30
