    Default Google Chrome

    Has anyone tried this yet?

    I downloaded it at work and it was faster and seemed quite good but now I'm posting from it I'm beginning to get cheesed off.

    For a start I don't seem to be able to scroll up using the touchpad and perhaps worse is that it won't spellcheck the word you click on but only the last thing you typed which makes spellchecking after you've typed out the post a real pain!!

    Anyhow for anyone who's tried Firefox 3, Opera or IE8 then this Google Chrome seems quite good for a Beta. The bugs are a pain but it does honestly seem a little snappier than the others especially when dealing with flash videos or other more complex website features.

    Thought I'd see what you guys thought of it.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I've been using it for a month, thanks to file_cabinet, and I fucking love it.

    I downloaded it but for some reasoning the browser wasn't working. It might have just been my internet connection though. Thats interesting is it really that good, I've gotten used to firefox.

    Aside from occasionally shutting down if I try to go to a non-bookmarked site in the main tab, I I'm having no problems at all. I actually switched because after using Firefox forever, 3 seemed to suddenly not want to cooperate so I just gave up.

    Yes, I've been using it for about a month and a day (i.e., more than disregard) and I really like it too. No. I love it. It's a google product...who wouldn't dare love a google product?

    But I've spent so long getting FF3 just right.

    Can anyone describe what's so good about it, or is it just easier to use?

    Just downloaded it, and i'm posting with it now... Looks like a good browser's on the way if this is the beta. I'm a long-time user of Opera and Firefox, and I definitely want something new. Like the design, too.

    I much prefer FF2 and even Opera.

    It's not necessarily a bad browser (in fact I found that it was faster than all other browsers I've used), it just lacks stuff that I've gotten too used to. I'm all into customizing my browsers, too, and since it's still really new and in beta, it's extremely lacking in that area.

    Might re-download it one of these days....

    I found it annoying with few compelling features to compensate.

    I hope it gets better. I would really like to use it.
