Maybe cuz John Resig is one of the guys running the show, and he also happens to work on the FireFox project (and created jQuery)

Very clean and sleek interface!

Looks nice, but it keeps failing halfway through pages.

Perhaps it just doesn't like our M$ poxy proxy.

Will try it at home later.

Otherwise, I can't see anything that I'm not getting from Opera. Except the separate process for each tab thing.

Its all about ad revenue. Tracking what people browse to and advertising to that market. Google wants to make money from this ad revenue.

Nice browser. Looking good.

ok, ive been using it for about an hour now and have a list irritating issues.

* plugin support, firstly, adblock.
* reopen closed tabs. this is going to be hard when they all run as separate processes
* more than just windows quicklinks for folder downloads. i dont store pictures in "d:\download" and its irritating not having the common shortcuts to my different folders when chrome opens your default download folder.
* remember last opened folder.
* import firefox's bookmarks toolbar into the bookmarks toolbar.
* RSS
* editable bookmarks folders, hell, a user editable, navigatable bookmarks folder i can find and manipulate like explorer
* better folder support, do not hide my executables in C:\Users\Drew\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application
* maintain tab state more regularly, do not empty editboxes when i accidentally navigate away from the page.
* find as i type support

so far, its a fresh browser and needs to be setup the way i want, but i cannot find the options to set it up as such...
its clean. i like that. i like that a lot.
its unobtrusive, there arnt a thousand toolbars and statusbars, i like that
its memory light and fast, and the separate process are good and an intelligent way of managing memory.
and its pretty good and stable for a 0.2 release first day.
the rest will come. google will innovate and listen.

ahh love the little "icognito" look (ctrl-shift-n). reminds me of where in the world is camen sandiego.

dragging a tab out of the Tab bar looks funky too. is IE8 release going to go un-noticed now (when it finally happens that is)?

Bit buggy and obviously there are no real addons for it yet, but I'm sure within 2-3 months it'll have pretty much everything Firefox does.

And it's responsive as all hell. I mean seriously. I can't tell the difference between the load times with Firefox, IE & Opera, but with Chrome... good lord. Very nice.

I've been using it all day today and I don't mind it. It's got a nice light feel and I've had no difficulties with any sites so far.

I love the fact each tab is its own process and you can see individually what's eating your memory (the Green Room has been highest memory eater so far).

It's nice, although I miss many of my extensions in FF.

Actually, I think this warrants a separate subject thread because the subject is sufficiently different.

Loving it although it does has some trouble rendering the Commonwealth Netbank site after logging in...

It is surprising the google just renewed its contract with mozilla as default search till 2011 while working on this. Aparantly 85% of firefoxes revenue comes from google for that privilege some 60 Million a year. I wonder how much browser share it will snag.

I really love that new tab most visited windows page I am forever clicking CTRL + T then starting to type website I goto all the time.

Adds seem very thick on the ground though but I am willing to look at them as a I get used to it.

*EDIT* Virt you big commi :P google is responsible for firefoxs ability to hold that flag. Google is like the arms of FF or at least the wrists :P

Yep, sums up my experience thus far. 'cept for the extensions thing - I don't use extensions for FF so I don't have anything to miss :-) In fact, my browsing needs tend to be split between Opera, FF, Iceweasel and konqueror, depending on where I am at the time, so I'm not usually in one browser long enough to get myself all tangled up in them there fancy extension thingies :-p

As a browser, I'm really happy with this little baby. Obviously time will tell, but first impressions are goooood in the Den of Deviance :-)

It's fast. It's light.

Needs more bug-fixing and plugin support. But otherwise a worthy contender to the browser race.


/starts countdown for when IE and FF would integrate some Chrome features into themselves.
