Yep. I like it. The only thing I'd really like to see is a way of syncing bookmarks between browsers. That's really the only Firefox extension I care about....

I was going to try it it but couldn't find a theme/skin changer. I don't like blue color, it's annoying.

True I had to redo my bookmarks but There is only one site I use that doesn't display correctly.

Mine's black.

And yes. The only thing I don't like about it is that when you press Ctrl+B it doesn't bold in the CP text box. It does in IE.

If you are worried about your "themes" of your internet browser, you might be a homosexual.

This sort of simpleton mindset causes you to miss out on some amazingly functional and aesthetically pleasing upgrades.

It is amazingly fast.

My only complaint is it uses the Internet Connection Settings specified in Control Panel rather than it's own independent settings.

I'll buy aesthetically pleasing, but how is a theme functional?

Just started using Chrome today. I had been a Firefox fan for years. But with all the problems I have had since installing FF 3.5 yesterday, I decided to switch to Chrome. I'm liking it a lot. Fast web page loading.

Only thing I don't like so far is that there's no drop down for the browser history.
And how (what are the hotkeys) to get to the first page where all your previous sites are on the homepage?

Also the back button doesn't exactly go back to the last page visited when I was on ebay and other sites.

All i want is a darker color that doesn't blind me every time i look at it.

Color is definitely a functional situation for me. :D

I installed it and is ok except I am pretty much addicted to some of my Firefox extensions so unless there is similar ones coming out for Chrome I am not switching.

agreed, Google is dangerously close to becoming Big Brother dont trust anyone to provide everything in your electronic life.


Google records everything they can:
For all searches they record the cookie ID, your Internet IP address, the time and date, your search terms, and your browser configuration. Increasingly, Google is customizing results based on your IP number.

Also The Google toolbar is Spyware- if you have the toolbar installed, Google essentially has complete access to your hard disk every time you connect to Google

Google wants to own your OS, your mail, your search, your Browser, your maps, your mobile maps, your cell phone, your pictures, your video sharing (youtube), control online advertising (doubleclick), your internet access (AOL), etc, etc.

Google enjoys a 75 percent monopoly for all external referrals to most websites. Webmasters cannot avoid seeking Google's approval these days, assuming they want to increase traffic to their site. If they try to take advantage of some of the known weaknesses in Google's semi-secret algorithms, they may find themselves penalized by Google, and their traffic disappears. There are no detailed, published standards issued by Google, and there is no appeal process for penalized sites. Google is completely unaccountable.



As an internet community it is better for us all to preserve some competition.

Works in Firefox too.

When you find something you love, stick with it.

I have had issues with Chrome, but not very many at all.

Still use it over the others now. I cant go back.

Ditto (this). I still have a couple of sites that only allow IE or FF but otherwise it's G-chrome all the way.
