  1. "Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier".

    Its still Beta so "buyer beware".
    Link-->Google Chrome - Download a new browser

    EDIT: Very simple, minimal interface indeed which I like very much. Web pages seems to load extremely quickly or do I just imagine things. Hopefully this is stable and well protected but for now I´m impressed.

    We have no privacy on internet, we all use Microsoft. I like the speed of the browser, everytime i click it's 10 times faster then IE.
  6. ... what about the speed compared to Firefox? ... OK, don't tell me --- I need to install and test it :wink:

  7. Micr$s$ft improved alot with the EU watching.
    What does paypal say about it?
    safari for windows was also very good everyone says. but
    paypal srapped them from the list of save browsers.

    It's just a beta and i love it, for me speed is important, every browser has security issues, you can thinstall the browser, make it virtual to test it.
  10. Love it :)

    It's just great, so fast and easy to use :thumb:
  11. Lots of fuss surrounding privacy at the moment.
    It won't become my main browser, FireFox is my browser of choice.

    But since it's google it'll have some following, uses the webkit engine from the Safari so standards support is good, so designing for it isn't an issue.

    Conclusion: meh
  12. just tried it... no faster than ie imho... middle mouse click-dragging doesn't work... meh!

    Tried it this morning and really like the speed and thumbnails to your most used links. My only problem is I'm used to Firefox now it second nature to use it. Will definitely keep an eye on it though.

    I am using it too now. First impression. Fast and easy! Only some strange borders appears round boxes like i am typing in now.
    Also the spelling check is very annoying

    Seems fine on these forums to me. I like being able to pull tabs out of the main browser window into their own window, and being able to drag them back in
