    Whoa, really? That look pretty good, I guess I'll give it a go.

    EDIT: Writing from Chrome now and I'm really liking it. It even has an automatically installed spellchecker (in Norwegian even, so now I'm getting tons of red lines >:[).

    I like how it wastes as little space as possible on toolbars.

    It imported my bookmarks, but...where are my RSS feeds?

    Wow I'm using it now, it's faster than Firefox. And instead of having 1 website as my homepage I can have lots :D

    It's so cool when you have tabs open and you switch them around.

    I like Opera's speed dial better, you can choose what goes in there, it isn't automatically generated.

    Otherwise, I like Chrome a lot, it's clean, simple, and fast, and the information on the background workings Google provides is more amazing.

    If/when it gets adblock, flashblock, a built in FTP client, built in IRC client, RSS feeds as live bookmarks and half a dozen other features I regularly use with Firefox, I'll consider switching.

    It's a slick browser none the less, just not one I would use as a default.

    I am using crome right now and it works real nice, I love the fact that all tabs run in different processes so if on freeze the all don't freeze.

    Yeah, but it's not included in the initial download, and I can't be arsed to go download it on its own. :p

    Looks like Chrome is really lacking after some extended use. It's nice, but I don't want to use it before it gets up to Firefox's standards, so I'll go ahead and uninstall it now.

    Posting from it. ^.^
    Looks really great, but I don't like the "speed dial" page. Tought it would be bookmarks instead of most used.

    I just thought it was a regular browser before. but after reading their comic on it, I'm fascinated enough to try it out. and it has a sad tab(rip off of sad mac) who wouldn't download it for that :D
