I've decided to give Google Chrome another go, this time on my netbook. One slight problem - when I navigate to a website by entering its URL it appears to do nothing for ages before deciding to navigate to the website. :badpc: Firefox on the same PC navigates instantly. What's wrong?

XP HE SP3

Is Firefox actually loading the page, or pulling it from it's cache?

It sounds like a DNS issue to me - what happens if you put 210.55.180.156 (www.google.co.nz) in the URL bar?

It didn't happen just now when I browsed to PressF1 but it does happen with Google :stare:

Firefox is actually loading the page, and so is IE.

Gary - this is on XP :p
