    "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.

    peace

    Thanks Jari, i juts wanted to post this, i am testing it right now, it is great fast, less memory usage and so on, i think Google will do good business with this. I have it as my default browser already.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    I had a small test and uninstalled after 1 minute , I was trying to browse the RD forum and had direction errors ( to many redirects ??) so gone with the chrome thing.

    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
