ZOMG!!

Did you know you can drag a FF tab over to Chrome!


But not vice versa.

Sir Mean Mr. Mustard: Good to know that I'm not the only one that worries about things like that :P

I like all the screen realestate I can get, and while I've recently hacked away at FF3 to get it, I still get that little bit more in chrome.

why do you need a status bar? the page loads what more is there? if its for seeing future links, just mouse over it shows at the bottom.

Seems to me that this is just like "incredimail" (spelling, not sure, long time ago)

All you send is mine, Just forget owning anything you send or receive!

Kind regards, you know,

also, if you don't like adds in FF3, get noscript plugin, that'll stop 'em.

It's so fast, google, that you won't have time to object to publication of how well "your" mail looks. Watch out folks, we need an atomic review of this new gadget, IMHO.

I'm liking it. The minimal clutter up top, the pop-up status bar that gives you more page space & the speed! - international sites are MUCH faster - HUGE advantage over FF/IE.

It needs to have a slicker way to access all your bookmarks (the bookmark bar removes the space you gained from having the pop-up status bar, so I don't want that always there. & pressing ctr+b to bring up bookmarks is middle-step I don't want).

As for mem usage;
 
Chrome 0.2.149.27 78,508k
IE 7.00.6000.16705 20,464k
Firefox 3.0.1 94,208k

*All with 6 identical tabs open.


Ok, so you can't take the IE figure seriously (any way of finding the actual IE figure out btw?), but Chrome does use less than FF.


I still prefer to use in FF in fullscreen + autohide (Menu/Task bars) though, as you get the same page space as Chrome. But Chromes' speed is amazing.

FF fullscreen (with pop up Menu/Task bars);
http://www.users.on.net/~ralfi/FF%20FS.JPG

Chrome default;
http://www.users.on.net/~ralfi/Chrome.JPG

IE fullscreen (with dodgy Task bar pop-up & forced Tab/Address bar pop-up);
http://www.users.on.net/~ralfi/IE%20FS.JPG


I want Chromes speed + its' pop-up status bar with FF fullscreen pop-up functionality.


Oh & I LOVE http://www.google.com/tools/dlpage/res/chrome/images/chrome-205_noshadow.png Looks like some badass gadget from Batmans utility belt (ok, maybe if it were more...black).

As has been posted elsewhere, google have since updated the terms of service to remove the licensing of content.

To be clear aswell, the original license didn't change ownership of the content, it just granted google a license to use it.

That has been removed, and all rights are retained by the user.

well i'm sold, no problems here so far, i don't use many plugins etc, so seems like the way to go.

selling points for me are basically, more efficient use of screen real-estate, (top bar is slimmer).

and it opens faster then firefox, i'll click to open firefox and then chrome and no matter what, chrome always is the first up and ready to go.

so given the clean minimalistic interface and the fact that it so far seems to be faster then firefox i think i'll stick with chrome for now.
