4chan came up like 10x as fast as it usually does; that's like under 2 minutes >.>

IE is the most popular, so more people exploit security flaws. It makes it easier for the bad guys, if you don't stop them they will win the internet.

I'm not gonna bother getting that if it's 10x times as fast as my Firefox is right now. 10x faster than instant is still instant right?

I have absolutely no idea what the fuck you guys are talking about. Is it a new edition of google or something? Why are you talking about browsers? I feel out of the loop.

It is a browser made by google, and it's OVER 9000!!! times faster than other browsers.

Very good. Very fast and slim. Still not as comfortable as Opera, but if they copy some Opera interface feutures like mause gestures in it - difinetly a browser i gona use.

Edited:

"Doom for Firefox and IE..."? You ever tryed Opera?

I have yet to hear a good arguement to switch from IE to anything else.

Its not like you can uninstall IE anyway, so just go with it.

IE will pretty much always be the de facto browser, and Firefox has enough momentum among people who are computer-savvy enough to survive a browser change to protect itself from Google, just like it has from Opera.

I've tried to get into Opera several times, and I always just end up back on Firefox. Maybe if I was forced to use a computer with only Opera or this Google shit on it for a week I'd use 'em instead, but until then I like my Firefox and all my customizations.

How about where is my fucking linux version? Douchebags.

I will switch from Konqueror if chrome has a cd ripper and burner plugin for it as well as a better file browser.

There's no IE on any other OS than windows.
A good argument ? Noscript. With it, you won't see any google adsense, flash ad, or any annoying thing if you don't allow it.

Don't know the market shares of the browsers, but I've used Opera for a while, and find it better than the others on most areas.

Though I'm hooked on firefox extensions, and have been using it since pre-1.0, I think I'm gonna switch to chrome for good. It's lacking a few features I'll miss, but nothing essential. The separate processes for each tab/plugin architecture is too good to pass up.

Simmy
09-02-2008, 23:18
I've always used IE, not because its better or anything but because I'm just way to lazy to switch to any other browser. I've tried both Firefox and Safari, and I liked Firefox, just not enough to get it for myself. I hated Safari.

So I'll proly try it on one of my friend's computers since at least one of them will get it.

i just installed google chrome. i approve. it has (or appears to) all of the functionality that firefox has, it imported all of my settings easily, and it runs smooth.

i'm not sure about them using my browsing habits for data-mining, but they probably are.

it's definitely a good program, though.

*It doesn't download the right language installer sometimes if you have the CustomizeGoogle addon f ex and change the language. And the help page is only linked to from the site you come to when you uninstall, not when you install. You can however change it after install.

*It has a nasty tendency do mess up password fields if you click in the field and worse, change the saved password if you do that I think.

*You can't drag bookmarks windows or bookmarks to the toolbar like in FF.

*Trouble/impossible getting the right webpage bookmarked in cybernations f ex.

*Disables the scrolling function you have by clicking the mouse wheel.

*No addons.

*No suggestions for the spellchecker.

I am perfectly happy with Firefox and all it's addons. And like someone said already, 10x faster than instant is still instant.

Plus I don't like what they're doing already what with that Google Taskbar BS. IMO, they've got their fingers in enough pies.

I have been a Firefox fan for quite some time, I would miss my favorite extensions. I did give Google Chrome an honest attempt. I find the interface to be aesthetically unpleasant in appearance, though the speed is amazing. I imagine in time add-ons to Google Chrome will come available. I feel that I need to try it further before I make a final judgment.

I like Firefox myself, but for some reason my pc hates the new version, so any time I try to download anything it shuts down the browser. I'm back on Opera now, only thing I miss is my spell checker but wth, I'll live.

kehmesis
09-03-2008, 05:57
Ok I've tried Chrome and it's fuckin' awesome. Seriously. The moment they add mouse gesture in, it'll be my main browser, if not the only one I'll use.

But without mouse gestures... I dunno. What the fuck are they thinking?

Selzi
09-03-2008, 05:58
I am currently using it right now. I was surprised that it actually did seem to speed up page loading (I do have a slow connection so it was noticeable). However, any browser without AdBlock Plus doesn't feel like a browser worth having.

Also, I just hit tab+enter and it didn't submit the message -_-
That's how I post in Firefox!

Edit: Interestingly enough the comic (http://www.google.com/googlebooks/chrome/) wasn't lying when it says it uses more RAM usually but less RAM overall or something like that. Just by itself it took up the most memory of anything I was running, about 10k Kb more than Firefox. But when I opened 15 tabs at once in both, Chrome's memory usage stayed the same while Firefox's skyrocketed by 100k Kb.

It'll just be like every other Google product. Either the other companies will incorporate its features in their products quickly and Crome will fall by the wayside or they will be trounced by Chrome.

GFH_Spike
09-03-2008, 07:34
Like others, I need my mouse gestures. Aside from that complaint, it's a sleek, highly efficient browser and a total speed demon. I can see myself switching from Opera once the features are beefed up.

It's fully open-source though, so any data-mining will be publicized.

"Google Chrome is built with open source code from Chromium."
"Chromium is the open-source project behind Google Chrome."
"You can get Chromium's source code and contribute to the project."

Google Chrome is not open source, it just uses some open source code.
Enough room to implement whatever they want.

Alright now it's starting to make me angry.

If you submit a form and then try to go back to do it again (like doing a search) it displays a white page and a warning so you have to hit Refresh before it'll show you the page again. Very annoying when you're trying to do 20 searches again and again which I always am.

Also, it's randomly downloading image files rather than just displaying them.

i have all 3 icons in my toolbar. IE took 4 seconds to load, firefox about 6 and chrome less than 2.

so this makes me believe that chrome will dominate this field also, like everything else google put it's hands to.

The best thing about chrome is its lack of toolbars. I just have a few small buttons and an address bar at the top and the rest of my widescreen is filled with the webpage. The spelling checker and auto-corrector is quite cool to and the speed is amazing. Only downsides that I have experienced is that I had to reinstall Java to get applets working and when testing out some java servlets that I developed, the view source button displays the source of sending a get request to the java servlet, rather than the source you got back from your post request. I ended up debugging it in firefox where it automatically highlighted the error in the code in red.

found out one thing I don't like already...

although it does save the links to the tabs that were open before the program got shut down, it doesn't auto open the tabs like firefox does.


so far I'd say its definitely comparable with firefox... guess I just have to get use to its different layout.

Chrome has a LONG way to go if its going to compete with IE. The main issue is compatability. Hell, the Google Earth plug-in doesn't even work with it (which is pretty sad when you think about it..)
