It's really damn interesting. I think it'll pwn Firefox in just a few months.

It just gets out of my way and doesn't do a lot of the annoying "text completion" that Firefox does.

Check it out:

I heard about this earlier today.
Looks promising.
:( I'd hate switching from Firefox after so long though.

Donloaded and installed it and took it for a short spin before I left for work. The whole design is nice an clean though the babyblue doesn't really do it for me. Bitch is fucking fast at rendering complex and java heavy pages though.

So far it's not bad. Of course I am missing the customization options of Firefox but since Chrome too is open source, I expect that to be fixed pretty soon.

Now to find out how to get all these pron links off my starting page...

I on the other hand like the design of Office07. I love me some Ribbon action. I also like the crisp and clean design of Chrome. I guess I'm just a stickler for these things.

I used Chrome all of yesterday and I must say, I am probably going to stick with it for a while at least. It's lean, has some absurdely fast rendering and gives me quite a lot of real estate on a smaller monitor. On the flipside of this equation are the missing plugins that Firefox offers. But Google will do something about that on the road ahead.

Hm, maybe I should give Opera another try in the meantime.

I didn't say they didn't, just thought it was an interesting side note. That's all.
