Google Launches New Browser
 
[url=http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/features.html]Google Chrome[/url]

Anyone plan on trying it out?

looks awesome... i doubt i can use my firefox extensions though... some of which do the same things, but platypus and greasemonkey will be dead :/.

It's cool but kinda memory hog. They built [URL="http://gears.google.com/"]Google Gears [/URL]into the browser which should make things interesting.

I'm skipping this one for now...[url=http://www.p2pnet.net/story/16889]they already have a major security flaw, one that Apple patched with Safari 2 months ago[/url] (Chrome is built on Apple's WebKit engine). I may eventually try it out, but for now, I've got Firefox right where I want it, and I'm starting to rediscover Opera (used it a lot in college).

I'm satisfied with Firefox, but I'll give it a try. Google always impresses me, so I like to check out everything they do.

Bohnzie, good to know about the security flaw...

Just be sure to read the [url=http://yro.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/09/03/0247205]fine print...[/url]

It's bad enough I have Gmail as my personal email...not sure I want Google knowing everything I'm surfing...

Google has [URL="http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/google-chrome-license-agreement/"]retroactively rescinded that term[/URL]. This guy also has a post about [URL="http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/google-chrome-communication/"]what Chrome sends back to the mothership[/URL].

The browser is pretty nice - seems faster than Firefox, and just feels less intrusive. The search memory feature is pretty awesome (it "remembers" how to invoke a website's own search page from the omnibar), although I'm sure it's just a matter of time until there is a FF plugin for it.

I just downloaded Chrome last night to check out, anyone use it on a regular basis? Pros/cons? It seems pretty fast.

I have Chrome, but purely for testing purposes. I'm a Firefox junkie and can't let go, especially with all the extensions. But now that Chrome supports [URL="https://chrome.google.com/extensions"]extensions[/URL], I may have to revisit.

I downloaded Google Chrome a while back, it has some features I like but won't use it as my default. I still use IE and MSN-butterfly. Google Chrome just recently added the feature that allows downloads to Real Player, and because of it's speed I do use it at times.

What's with the Adobe Acrobat plug-in associated with the warpath website? The first time I tried Google Chrome, came to our website there was an Adobe plug -in requierement drop-down at the top of the browser, can anyone explain?

No idea. Never seen that.

[quote=Mattyk;657497]No idea. Never seen that.[/quote]

I was just wondering Matty because I use IE-8 and MSN the majority of the time and had never gotten that particular message before. For whatever reason I couldn't download the plug-in though not doing so had no affect on the sites operational function. After checking further I discovered Adobe Acrobat is not a free- plug-in.

Never heard of that issue, I just downloaded chrome last night and pulled up the site just fine. I use several browsers with the site and haven't had an issue.

Thanks Matty.....I'm going to contact Google asking them to simplify. It could be something associated with my particular set-up.

I pulled up The Warpath in Chrome and did not get the Acrobat plugin error. The free version would be Adobe Reader (I highly recommend [URL="http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/"]Foxit Reader[/URL] instead), but that shouldn't have prompted you for that particular plugin for any phpBB/vBulletin sites.

pro: fast/simple
con: a lot of things were developed for other browsers and never tested in chrome

I've had that happen before too.. can't remember the browser but likely IE or FF

also not on my computer so I didn't really look into it

I've been trying to use Chrome more lately and I love how fast it is, but every 10-15 minutes or so it hangs and I have to restart it. Anyone else have this issue? Guess I'll just stick with Firefox.

Anybody seen google's new images search that places images in related wheels? It's pretty tight.

I actually started using Chrome as my full time browser the other day and have had no issues with having to restart. As far as extensions go, Chrome has almost all the extensions I use in Firefox, so I figured I'd make the jump for a while. So far, I'm pretty happy.

I use chrome primarily but some of the quirks bother me.. not holding page location when hitting back a lot (though seems intermittent).. text field controls (such as WYSIWYG editors on vbulletin) not working, etc

Ive been using Chrome for almost a year now for home use. At work there is a website i have to go to that it doesnt (or didnt) work.

I havent had any problems with it. The only issue ive ever had is in windows you can right click and set a picture of hot chick, Redskins logo, or something else you like and set it as the wallpaper on your computer. Cant do that in chrome.

I love pretty much anything google. Dont be evil. Words to live by.

oh.. and filling out forms online sucks, typically go to IE for that

and checking image properties is annoying

Chrome has been the main vector for spyware where I work. You really need to tweak the settings to make sure you are protected.
