I love Chrome


I've been using Goggle Chrome for about a month.  I really love it.  It's very easy to use, and extremely fast.  I have fiber-optic internet and Chrome is even faster than Internet Explorer; but I'm using both!  Chrome is still in Beta, and I think they've done a fabulous job; you really should install it and see how it works.  I've installed it on both of our computers.

Once you use it, your most commonly used sites are displayed on your home page, for easy selection.  I still go back and forth between Chrome and Internet Explorer, for a few reasons.  The main one being I have a hard time accessing my preferred email, Hotmail, account thru Chrome, I'm sure that will be worked out, once the Beta testing is over.  

Here are a list of features:

  • Tabbed browsing where each tab gets its own process, leading to faster and more stable browsing. If one tab crashes, the whole browser doesn’t go down with it

  • A distinct user interface that places tabs on top of the browser window instead of right below the address bar

  • An “incognito” mode that lets you browse the web in complete privacy because it doesn’t record any of your activity

  • A new JavaScript engine built from the ground up for speed

  • Malware and phishing lists that automatically update themselves and warn you of bad websites

  • A default homepage that displays your most commonly used sites and other personalized information hi

Google chose to introduce Chrome to the media via a comic bookwritten by Scott McLeod.

I use Firefox and was wondering the same, how does it compare?

The reasons you have listed were the reasons that I use Firefox. :)
