Future of extension support?
I won't be around later, so I'm force-adding this now.
In the press releases from Google I know that they are looking to add support for the creation and usage of third-party extensions in the future, but am wondering if a timeframe has been set, be it a date or milestone. It's great for someone who wants a slim, fast browser, but at this point it simply lacks the functionality many users need/expect.
Nobody knows as far as we know.
We agree, too. Extension support is a big hole in Chrome right now.
Just agreeing here to make sure all systems are go.
Good morning! Rafe Needleman here, Got questions on Chrome? Let us have it! Seth will be here in just a second. And by the way, YES, I am using Chrome right now.
I've tried out Chrome for a couple of days, and I really like it! My computer has been locking up with a blue screen of death, and I think it's partially because of Firefox and all it's resource hogging.
Anyways, is there a way to enable a smooth scrolling feature, like Firefox? When I use the page up/down button, it's very blocky in its scrolling.
It's not a standard option at the moment. I find that using the mouse wheel (instead of arrows) gives me better control.
What's going to stop Firefox from incorporating the strenghts of this browser into their own product?
In fact, the Google guys seem to want the Mozilla team to incorporate their code.
However, some fundamentals of the two products are very different. Firefox and Chrome use different rendering engines. They do, however, share code in how they handle media extensions.
Is there anyway to change my default browser from Firefox 3 to Chrome as I love it and it works so much better, but i have tried doing this but it just doesnt allow me to do it, can you please help, thankyou, by the way great job
Click on the wrench in the upper right of Chrome. Go to Options, and the default browser setting is at the bottom.
I starting using it about two days ago and love it
Keep the good work.
Thank you very much
Tell the Google guys
Will there be a portable edition of Chrome in the future so that i can carry my fav browser with me in my thumb drive?
What makes Chrome and Firefox so fast? Why can't IE (or others) seem to make their browsers fast? Personally, I like Maxthon 2 because it's so incredibly configurable and has a lot of cool options, but Firefox (and now chrome) are simply faster.
The state of the art advances, and the Chrome team was able to use the latest technology for their browser without worrying about the legacy code.
Chrome crashes in fedora?
I hv fedora linux and chrome doesn't run in fedora.
not for linux yet
Google is apparently working on Chrome for Linux (and Mac), but hasn't provided a release date. Or month, even.
Any word on the "form-fill" feature?
I've come to rely on this Google Toolbar feature, especially for eCommerce sites.
No news of that yet
It's one of those annoying omissions you notice just you're getting comfortable with the new product.
Chrome does an OK job with remembering passwords, at least.
Are there any ad blocking addons for Chrome yet?
Google Chrome keystroke logging
Should we as consumers be worried about our privacy?
Feeding information to Google?
While Rafe will remember me as a computer journalist (and I still do write one article a month for various technology publication), I am now primarily an ISP. We are constantly removing the Google Toolbar from users machines, because it takes up screen real estate, spies on users' browsing, and consumes resources on the users' machines and Internet connections.. One of the biggest concerns we have about a Google browser is that it's likely to build in these annoyances. What do you think?
It's a valid concern
Also for n3td3v...
This is a valid concern. The original terms of service for Chrome were frightening to many, and Google changed them. I expect Google to try to stay in front of user fears on this one, but there is no question that using Chrome gives Google a lot of info. It's a question of how much you trust the company.
Chrome does have a "private browsing" feature for in-home secure browsing.
BTW: Hi Brett! Great to hear from you.
What rendering engine does this use? Will designers have to worry about page rending/compatibility in yet another web browser?
Same as in Safari, different typography engine. Open-source.
As far as page-rendering goes, there's the Acid3 test and W3C HTML standards to abide by. Designers should always be worried about cross-browser design.
pop-up blocker, integrated firewall, download manager and antivirus scanner?
Does chrome support these features spell checker, pop-up blocker, integrated firewall, download manager and anti virus scanner?
DM yes, others no
Chrome doesn't have them now, except for the download manager. But it's meager compared to the native one in Firefox.
