    Anyone have experience with the ChromePlus browser?

    I found a write up about it over on CNET's download site. Marketed as Chrome, only better. Same speed, virtually the same UI. But it does have a few tweaks to it.

    -Has an IE tab that lets you to interact with servers that only play with IE.
    -Supports Mouse Gestures
    -Has a Sidebar that can be customized
    -Supports (in a limited number) Chrome themes and extensions
    -Supports IE8's Web Slice Gallery service

    This thing is like a FrankenBrowser. I can identify elements (at the UI level) of IE, Opera, and of course Chrome.

    It didn't import the data from Chrome like it was advertised; it tried to import data from IE instead. I rarely used IE- even before I installed the beta of IE9 and it promptly updated itself and crashed, never to be resurrected...

    I use Chromeplus in Arch Linux and really like it. I previously used Firefox, what I like most about is setting my cache which goes to ram. It does have a few other options but this was really the reason I chose it. I have noticed it does crash a lot easier then firefox ever did and flash seems to crash but that is more a product of linux then actual Chromeplus.

    From personal use I think Opera is by far the best but also the largest of the installs. I am all about lean on my linux laptop (use dwm).
