Which will make it bloaty...?
Dunno. FF is still doing the job for me.
Dunno either. I guess we'll find out when it happens.
Same here. I was just commenting that I was glad to see that Chrome decided to support add-ons, etc..
Does Chrome automatically update itself? Like without warning or permission request? I noticed this morning that I am running the latest version which was released on September 18th. I know I did not do an update.
OK, I'm done playing with Chrome. Maybe someday it'll be something
How do I make Opera my default browser?
I don't know Steve. I actually find myself using more and more for sites that I trust. Mainly GA. But what I primarily use it for is Google Reader and Google Finance. Works much faster for me than FF.
It started getting buggy on me, sites not rendering properly, downloads saving instead of running (from trusted sites), things like that.
Hmmm....I also "upgraded" to IE8 (don't, btw).
Guess which monolithic browser does not play nice with Google sites and apps, including Gmail?
Chrome's now out of beta, the official 1.0 download is now available by updating. I just did, time to explore
Right off the bat, they added in that "highlight search terms on page" feature I was looking for.
Updating right now. I'm looking forward to extensions coming out so I can really give it a fair test against FF. Until that happens, FF will still win for me because of the ease of use the extensions bring me.
Still no Mac or Linux versions, though!
Looks like we've now got an Ad Blocker for Chrome (and Opera). :thumbsup:
Interesting -- I went to one of my local community web sites and Chrome gave me the attached warning. I clicked on the link for further analysis (second picture) -- quite informative.
That's what I was waiting for!
Got the same warning/message using Firefox.
Just installed Chrome and while it's mega fast, it doesn't render sites properly. Still not ready for prime time. Pity, was hoping for a lightweight browser that would take the place of the creeping bloat found in the other browser programs.
Ok, just tried this and...
Not that it doesn't block, but go to WSJ.COM and see how long the page takes to "let go" and allow you to browse.
Um...no discernible delay for me.
Yeah. I'm not seeing a delay either. Not even at WSJ.com.
Seeing constant delays. Not so with FF.
