Downloaded but not installed
Its design looks interesting enough to try, but early user reviews suggest it may not be ready for prime time. Also, even if I loved it, I wouldn't switch until there was a Linux version available. Finally, I'd expect it to either provide, or have a way to install, all of the add-on functionality I'm used to using with Firefox. It's the incompatibility of some of my favorite add-ons that prevents me from updating Firefox 2 to Firefox 3 (although I do have Firefox 3 installed on of my Linux machines).
I just downloaded it, and I am currently debating installing it. Since I already have Firefox 3, I probably don't need it.
isn't that what they used to put on car bumpers? yep...if you're old enuff to have seen one. I didn't know trere was a new brouser until i got this weeks e-mail. unless it knows what I need and finds it before i even have to ask, I dont see any benefit except to the exclusive ads to sell something. Otherwise it's just something else to clutter and slow the system down
Totally Satisfied w/Opera
Besides IE, I've used Firefox, Avant, Maxthon & Opera; I prefer Opera's combination of speed, security & free e-mail. No desire to try Chrome. Wish them well, though.
it's pretty fast
I know it's still beta, but this thing works noticeably faster than FF.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it
IE broke. Firefox works fine. No need to change. There are too many other events in life to spend my time on.
Well, I downloaded Chrome and clicked on a video tutorial on how to use it. It froze. I deleted it. It may have been a one in a million occurence. But since I'm happy with what my mother calls "Gorilla Fox"(she may not know what it is that I downloaded for her, but she knows it's much faster than IE or AOL), I'll stick with that for a while longer...
message for thebigjimsho, don't know how to send it directly
hi, how funny, I have been calling it Gorilla too....................
Probably a Mom thing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????
I think it's pretty much the same as the last IE, but it's faster, cleaner, there is a lot more space to see the page since they stripped off all the bars that were useless. Also, I like the main page of the favorites. And since it's google, we know it's open source (wich is kind) and we know it'll be updated.
Right now it's in the beta phase and it works pretty well. Not everything is perfect, but I'm gonna stick with them.
PS: I hate M$ so when I can move outside their range I'm happy. I use vista since it's the best (for me), but I'm trying to get less other M$ stuff. Viva google! =D
Downloaded twice and deleted twice as I can see no reason to switch with from what I saw and tried(both times brief)
Google Chrome browser?
I've bveen using Opera for almost 10 years, and would not change to any other browser. Have tried them all out.
Opera - Never tried but friends have ?? moved on
Curious as to what makes Opera special? Other than that, I'm close to retiring MS and moving over to Mac.
GOOGLE CHROME COPIES FIREFOX
From what I've seen a lot of the Firefox features where copied by Google for this thing, I wonder if that's legal.......................
I am totally happy with Firefox. Just checked the Chrome thing out of curiosity.
no desire to change
I don't want to tie myself to a browser that probably has or or will have a proprietorial interest. I intend to stay with Firefox and would go to a Linux program before going to any program that is associated with a company, no matter how well intended.
My major objection is:
that Google chrome is not compatable with Roboform. This means a lot of extra typing and filling forms. So it's back to Firefox for me at least till Chrome becomes Roboform compatable
Chrome and Firefox are Open Surce
Since both Firefox and Chrome are based on open source code, they can freely copy from each other, so yes it is legal.
just two words: fast & light.
Downloaded, tried it for a bit, deleted it
Did not handle my favs correctly and I don't like the idea of fully automatic updates so I deleted it. They fix the favs problem, and drop the idea fully automated updates then I might think about using it.
Google already knows too much about me.
Another Google toy that should help them to know more about its users.
Read the License agreement and if you are still using it do not complain about other software collecting user data anymore.
Installed and tested
I like its presentation. It seems very simple, but I do not need more. The only problem is that plugins for running certain websites are not available. May be other problems not seen yet. It could be too early to speak about from the user point of view.
So Far Quite Nice
I've only used it for about 7 hours. It certainly copies much of the niceties of Firefox. It is fast with some pages; not with others. I personally like the big, clean pages showing Most Visited, History, and Downloads. I didn't like having to install a newer (Beta) version of Java. (It apparently doesn't like the version which Firefox was happy with.) So far, it appears to be as good as Firefox against spyware.
While irrelevant to most users, one thing really appreciated is the ability to change the UI language at will after installation. That's very nice for us who may need bi- or multilinguality.
It will now have to earn the trust equal to the other big ones.
Avant Web browser
Chrome basicly is good ......But cannot compare to AVANT!!!! Here's why!!! Avant has everything I need in it's tool bar from print preview to tiles horizontal...has instant, automatic ZOOM, has autofill...Avant IS MUCH FASTER & best of ALL NO AD ONS.....Avant is complete with everything I need from day one.....Byfar the best web browser out there....& belive me I have tested them ALL from FF,opera,Maxthon, The world, etc. etc.....& another thing I can ONLY GET DIAL-UP where I live so speed is very important to me
I would like to try it but. . .
I am still operating on Windows 2000 and Chrome won't run on it.
i will wait for the mac version and have a look but who needs another browser?
What do you think of the Google Chrome browser?
I only downloaded it last night, but have enjoyed it so far.
It seems easier to use but there is more to it. Can't really explaine that but it's a great browser. May even make it my default.
I also have IE and Firefox.
I heard about it from a TV interview for Googles 10th birthday celebrations.
chrome browser is kind of fast n not heavy.
i download the google chrome browser its good for the slow pc as it is not big to be installed and interactive for many ppl.
even though it has many facilities that u can manage it in a simple way.
i thnk that its good but need to be updated and to be official google browser.. =] keep it up google guys =]
You Might want to give IE8 a try
If you are in the mood for trying browsers you might as well give the new beta of Internet Explorer 8 a try as well as Safari. There is something to like with all of them. It will be interesting as to who will eventually win out in the war of the browsers?
My default browser is Firefox 3, I also have IE 7 (rarely used), and now Chrome. Chrome seems fast, perhaps faster than FF on loading pages. I do miss the Google toolbar, part of the reason I may stick with FF. Another slight annoyance, is the "F11" key does not toggle to maximum screen size as it does with FF and IE. As I use "Snag It", FF gives me a little greater screen size to work with. Both Chrome & FF can be used at the same time, which is nice, no adverse reactions between the two.
Google Chrome browser first reaction.
I loaded the Google Chrome browser as soon as it was available, and was pleased with the initial uncluttered format.
On giving it its first search, It did not find what I was looking for.
I then logged onto Yahoo and asked the same question word for word and was immediately presented with answer I was looking for.
I shall not be deleting Google Chrome but most of my searches in future will be done with Yahoo.
Chrome can use any search engine
Upon installation, Chrome is set to use your default web search engine, and can be changed to use Yahoo, Live Search, Ask, or any other search engine as default. Of course, you can access the websites of any search engine as well.
I've set my default to Google, as I still consider it the best web searcher, but I've got several other web searchers in my Favorites. just in case.
