    It has porn mode. It's really fast. You can drag tabs around, take them out and make new pages out of them, or move them to other brower pages (best feature). It's sleek and minimalist. It has the ability to create applications out of webpages. It's new...

    Firefox is my jam. No need for anything else.

    Leave it up to Google to make a great product.
    I LOVE their maps.

    What is "porn mode"?
    Is it some sort of filter?

    Incognito Window. You use it and it won't log your browsing history.

    How disappointing.. i was hoping it replaces dull things (boring news, yet more economic/banking collapses, election coverage) with porn to keep you enlivened.

    No, that would be turning off moderation on your search preferences.

    My biggest likes of Chrome are:
    - faster rendering
    - more responsive
    - crashing one tab doesn't necessarily lead to crashing all tabs
    - more screen real estate
    - incognito mode is useful in certain situations when trying to login to a site with a different user/pass (so, you can have two different active sessions without it being a pain) - useful when debugging certain web apps (although this is not the 'main' purpose of incognito)
    - I like the way Find works (does highlighting in the scrollbar)
    - I like it when opening a new tab it has a list of the most active things I've clicked on and other userful information
    - integrated search and URL bar (took some getting used to)

    Biggest pet peeves of Chrome:
    - when hovering over a link with a long href it doesn't display the full link (information that can be useful when I am debugging web apps)
    - shift+enter of text in URL bar doesn't go to a .net site (this functionality is in Firefox)
    - ctrl+shift+enter of text in URL bar doesn't go to a .org site (this functionality is in Firefox)

    To get access the latest and greatest development version of Google Chrome (includes bug fixes), I recommend using their dev channel. More info here (warning, may not always have stable releases):
    Dev Channel: Early Access to Features and Fixes (Chromium Developer Documentation)

    I'm currently using 0.3.154.3.

    You can read about what fixes are in the dev channel here:

    No.. I dont want to just be able to search for porn.

    I want a porn mode that just realises the website you are on has got particularly dull (yet another Obama v McCain argument) and passes you some porn instead to liven it up.

    Are you listening Google?
