Google Chrome...

I was wondering what people think of Google Chrome and if members here use it much? I don't mind it myself, I actually like it better than IE and use it all the time at work. It just feels better using Chrome at work for some reason. However at home I can't live without Opera...

i'm still using IE (8), it does the job, that's it.

:ermm:

you might want to try Opera,FireFox or Chrome.

Personally i prefer FireFox. Nothing beats all those plugins... B)

I hate ads :wallbash:

when I see any kind of ads I feel :sick:

that's why I chose Firefox, with the help of Adblock plugin

I can browse faster and see the web page like it should be

I know there is a version of Adblock plugin for google chrome

but since most annoying ads come from google, I doubt the plugin

will be as effective as the firefox version.

not to mention the other amazing plugins and themes available for firefox :yes:

In version 8.0 of Chrome I quite like the built in PDF reader. Would be nice if Opera were to do something like this...

Chrome is awesome. I use to use Firefox, but it had to go for now because it is just so much slower, even the betas are slower. Chrome also has the extensions that most people need like adblocker, so there was no point in keeping Firefox. The interface is also a lot cleaner than Opera. It's much simpler. The number one reason that I switched to Chrome over all other browsers is it handles plugins (flash) better than all the others. Firefox kept crashing every time I hit a weird flash ad.

It works just the same, cos it's not made by Google.

Personally, I used IE7 and Firefox until I tried Google Chrome in July/August, and I haven't used anything else since. Chrome is so much faster and cleaner than either IEx or FireFox, and doesn't have the crappy timer bugs of Firefox or the page glitches of IE.

I'd like Chrome even more if it had a decent file downloader with resume (or an extension that does this?) cos I'm forever getting partial files thru my crappy network :(

I never tried Chrome or Opera but i am quiete happy with my firefox.

I noticed that newer versions are slower too however IE doesn't have as many functions as FF.

Personally i use the following extensions:

AdBlock

NoScript! (always disabled but sometimes i use it to prevent malicious scripts such has "we are scanning your pc to detect spyware...")

Firebug

Greasemonkey

DownloadThemAll! (BoB, i think you are missing it)
