Cool Re: OT: Google Chrome

I've used the Chrome browser for a couple of days now and it does seem to load pages faster. Haven't used it enough to decide if I like it overall though.

Default Re: OT: Google Chrome

I've been using it on and off too. I'm rather pleased with it, but I do have issues with it's CSS rendering which is rather sub-standard for the webkit platform its built from.

I've also noticed some javascript apps are slower than firefox, but all in all I figure it'll place right behind Opera in terms of quality or a solid 3rd place once a few more updates come out for it.

Beware! It was apparently written to be fast, but without enough thought for security. Many vulnerabilities are being found. The usual years-long 'beta' phase of Google projects is a good idea in this case.

I figured as much, I haven't used it for anything more than the SE forum circuit. :P

Any thoughts on how Google's Chrome stacks up when compared to Firefox or Flock?

Since the first time I saw it I knew I would never use any broswer ever again

But in all seriousness it is a damn good browser. It seems to have some rendering problems in the text fields of forums like SE.net where it doesn't update properly as you type but hopefully that will be fixed soon. Its fast, its got a **** simple no non-sense interface unlike the oh so bloated FF. I honestly still can't believe I found something that would get me off at least decade of IE use but I am happy I did.
