Seems pretty good to me. I've been using Firefox for the past year. But Chrome looks pretty sharp.

I use it for everything now. I only see some problems with such sites as Hulu and Fancast, but they seem to effect other browsers as well, so it's not a G! thing.

They've even fixed the textbox bug that has effected A.net pages (among others), so I'm happy.

I won't use it because I fear their thirst for our private information and I don't want a dominant Google.

Because of this post I decided to give it a shot. One full day so far. I do agree, Chrome saves everything it is quite disconcerting.

I have used it on my brother's computer and just love it. Unfortunately they don't have a mac version. They have I guess what you can call a beta for mac but it is horrible. You can't bookmark any pages. It's the first beta I've seen that was no where near ready to be released. Hopefully they will release it soon.

I've been using Chrome for a couple of months now and love it. There is a couple of niggles with it though, just like everything else. One thing that annoys me is when I accidently grab a tab and I move my mouse down to the taskbar, then I loose the page, so I have to reload a new tab. Apart from that, I think Chrome is great.

The Windows version is still in beta, and may be for a while still until the plugin makers catch up with the standards required by Google.

I didn't know that. It seems pretty good and stable for a beta.

Google releases updates every so often, but the software does not automatically update itself, so a lot of people complain about things that have been updated when they haven't updated their software. Stability has gotten better with each update as new bug reports come in, and they fix them.

I use it as my primary search engine. It has some limitations but I am happy with it overall. I feel it's much safer than IE.

Heck Gmail is still in beta and it's been several years.

I don't use Chrome though because I have too many FF add-ons that I love and wouldn't do well without.

Chrome is great. And when FF gives me hell, I just switch right to Chrome.

Wow, I had no idea that Chrome was BETA. Sweet. Its great.
I had the FF 3.5 -4 BETA, and it was terrible, crashed ALOT.
To be honest FF 3.0 is much better than 3.5.
Just my opinion.



Whoever said you can do anything you set your mind to has obviously never tried to slam a revolving door!!!

I'll like the new Safari as well, but still go between it and Firefox.
