I like this, easy to use, doesn't clutter everything up. Nice features too, some of them need fine tuning... when this comes out of Beta it will probably be my No. 1 used browser.

I love the incognito windows manual...

For times when you want to browse in stealth mode, for example, to plan surprises like gifts or birthdays, Google Chrome offers the incognito browsing mode.

..gentlemen, is that really what you designed it for...? :aware:

IE8 has the same capability also. :aware:

Not my favourite tbh.

 

Ugh it spell checks posts. :aware:

 

It doesn't have an available plug-in for Java, for one thing. Also, I don't like the layout. It's probably just that I'm used to IE. Meh.

It was just released two days ago, the Java plugin will most likely come out when it is out of Beta.

You can actually, I saw on another forum that you just need to download the Java version 6 update 10.

Does it work? I didn't try yet.

It's fast alright. Although I got Chrome running on my Macbook, it won't be replacing FF until Google make an official Mac port.

 

I'm glad to have tried it though...even now it is at least as fast as my other browsers.

I just tried out Chrome, and firefox was much faster in comparison. Also, when I checked my processes, there were about 4 chrome.exe's running at the same time. When I exited one out, the current webpage I was on was gone and some stupid "Aw Snap!" message came up. So far, I think chrome is fail but it's in beta stage so I'll give it that. When it's finalized, I'll definitely be checking it out.

 

After getting a bit used to chrome, I'm starting to actually like it so I take back everything I've said about it.

very fast browser.

only downloaded in beta (was going to wit) because safari died and thats what my sisters use.

i like to have a browser that only i use - so i can have bookmarks of my own.

so at the moment im using it and they can use FF3 for now. im deciding if i like it.

 

i like the option to import my bookmarks. im rubbish at remembering web pages so i like that.

it's annoying not being able to click and scroll up. i'm used to it and hate scrolling by turning the wheel on long pages.

like being able to search in the address bar. in firefox i had a google tool bar for that i also love the look of it

The reason there were 4 chrome.exe's was because each tab is its own process :aware:

Which makes it less susceptible to crashing. :aware:

Mhm. My experience with Google applications hasn't been that good so far (for example, it took me ages to fully remove a failed Google Desktop which was continuously trying to connect to Google.com), but the comments seem positive so far. I'll try it when the beta for Mac is released, I hope it'll be as good as the Windows one.

 

I don't like the UI though. The blue is, well, ugly.

Looks good to me, but I like my firefox. I wonder how that will pan out with Google's support of FF.

Well, I'm back to Firefox. Sorry Chrome, I value my addons and adblock greatly :aware:

 

EDIT: and the Home button, and easy-to-use-bookmarks, and customisability, and..........

Chrome has a home button, but you have to enable it. :aware:

Why not help him out and others too by describing how? I'm sure you had no problem figuring it out, but I'm also sure that Earl looked for it before posting. He's a smart guy.

 

Edit @ Toungy's edit: I was asking Stobbo how. :)

Or you could tell him where it's at yourself instead of spamming. ~Toungy

Or you could.

 

Anyway, as he said the home button isn't the only reason he doesn't like it. Only in beta anyway.
