I’m using it every day for work without problems. Much faster than FF.

Their comments focus on the improved audio and video performance, bookmark features and privacy controls. And I am thinking about swifting one to have a try.

I’ll consider Chrome when a plug-in like AdBlocker is available for it – although the chance of that is highly unlikely because Chrome is from Google and Google gets its revenues from ads.

Doesn’t compute … a granny that hacks the registry? You must be a very computer literate granny … kudos to you.

The chrome application itself is the search bar….just type your search query in the space for the url and thats how you get your google results!….space saving cleverness, cant wait for mac version as firefox 3 is horrendous, truly.

I for one, love using the innovations that Google releases, and am a fan of Google as a successful company and as a story of American success.

I think the browser has a couple things going for it…
The ability to maintain its clean design while at the same time providing powerful and comprehensive functionality. The only problem I have come across, and it may be related to my system was the random “Popping” out of my tab when I would switch over to chrome from another application. The tab that I click to rollover to chrome sometimes pops out.
The other problem that I expierence randomly is the slow, curtain fall style loading of pages. Randomly through out the day, I will click over to a tab, and this slow, waterfall like effect takes over, as the page slowly loads and reveals itself from top to bottom.

That so far has been the two things that have bothered me most. The boomarking is fine, and I enjoy the clean interface it provides, and the movable tabs.

It has never failed on me and I have all my bookmarks are favorites on there. I have also heard that Google uses your data to get you “pertinent ads”. No thanks.

That said, I don’t think that your average Joe or Jane is ever going to care that much about the intricacies of their browser, and will stick with Microsoft in the long run.

Really like it tho
