    Any clue as to how much room it takes and what sort of resources it occupies?

    If it's pretty small, I'd consider it for an alternative browser on the laptop...or any other weak machines.

    I'm using it to pE$(*@&








    I'm using it now. It is pretty darn quick. I'm concerned about exploits as well though.

    You know, it's always bothered me before that my web browser didn't report my browsing habits to a central location so as to get more targeted advertising in return!

    This sucks in a way though. I hope Google still sponsors Firefox, because without Google's support, Firefox will end up languishing like Seamonkey and Thunderbird do.

    doesn't work too well with silverlight it seems (go figure, MS plug-in).

    functionally, chrome and firefox don't feel that different.
    with the big exception that with firefox I can use plug-ins like flashblock and grease monkey

    the tabbed browsing functions differently from firefox as well. It runs one instance of chrome per tab and window, instead of having all of the tabs running under a single collection like firefox. Honestly chrome feels a bit like safari.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I doubt you can kill firefox or IE with chrome as it stands now.
    still lacks a lot of features like firefox has and mainstream support that IE has.
    Also not supported under linux yet, but I guess it would fill in the 'simpler than vanilla firefox' niche...

    It's sad, but there are still plenty of sites out there that only work with IE.

    The thing that's really nice about chrome is that it's ultra simple and is easy for everyone to use. As in the GUI/advanced settings aren't as complicated as IE and firefox. If you check 'options', there are only 3 tabs and everything under those tabs are very limited.

    wouldn't be bad for PCs that are going to be used by the average user as it's simple and the GUI is user friendly with so few buttons. As long as any exploits aren't major.

    Chrome doesn't even work for me. Keep getting OH SNAP error message that it can't resolve the page or something to that effect.

    I like IE emulator thing Firefox has. It's come in really handy recently.

    I'm pretty sick and tired of Google owning the world.
