    Post Google Chrome

    So has anyone else been using Google Chrome besides me? What do you think about it so far?

    If you have no idea what I'm talking about go here:

    So far, it works very well. There are just a couple bugs I've discovered so far, but they are very minor. It does seem to be living up to all of its promises thus far.

    Yup...I started using it off and on couple days ago...I like it, but its missing some things...like the ability to use your middle mouse button click to free scroll around on a page or image.

    Also, I don't know how to get to your specified homepage or the built in homepage.

    You have to tell it that you have a homepage and then you specify what it is. It is under options from the "hammer button".

    I'm hoping that since it is Beta, they'll get a lot of those little differences hashed out quickly. I think a lot of FireFox users are already sending in reports about the differences so that is a good thing.

    I think I'll wait for an official "release version"

    Google has enough of their junk on my pc without me deliberately adding more. Firefox is starting to bug me so it might be worth a look.

    I am using Firefox 3 and quite happy with it. Still got some bugs, e.g uploading a file to this site gives me white text on white background at the file selection window but heh, I am used to the fox

    I might check it out eventually. I'm rather attached to my Firefox browser though. It would take a lot to get me to switch (adding add-ons would be a start).

    So far from what I'm seeing, Chrome is extremely similar to FireFox. So similar that I'm wondering just how much of it may be straight from the FireFox build. It would make sense since Google is very involved with Mozilla and funds the project. I think with the first release version I'll be a full convert, but I need to see all the things I love about FF get added into it first.
