I am the Chrome killer

Google has just released its new browser, Chrome. I take immense pride in the fact that within an hour of downloading it I managed to crash the damn thing by opening several tabs and downloading multiple files at once. Back to the drawing board fellas.

Edit: It appears that Chrome isn't worth using anyway if you're a blogger, because in so doing "you give Google a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free and non-exclusive licence to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any Content that you submit, post or display on or through the Services."

Thanks for my dad for drawing sending me a story about it. I have since uninstalled Chrome.

Ah - that sorts that then. It could never support the 243 tabs I have open most of the day.

I hate it, it's shit.

It's still developing, but the quality features are lacking compared to Firefox. Compatability issues with older web pages are an issue. Privacy options are also very shit, there's no looking at dodge sites without other users finding out about it.

On the plus side, it looks slick, and works quick.

I'm reluctant to change from my faithful Firefox, but I'll give it a try for a week or so.

Looks like they've changed their tune a bit.

Oh, and Curly, if you want to look at naughty sites, there's an 'incognito' mode. ;)

like the idea of Chrome but ... like you I managed to crash it by trying to get it top do things that Firefox and Opera do with aplomb!
Open lotsa tabs and then close this one here and that one there. Wanna get a crash, just try to use it as if it is a viable competitor to IE ... IE3 that is!
