Yep,
So I am on vista!
Vista must hate it or it could be because...

I clicked on 'Open all booksmarks in new window'.

Funny that.
Google promo videos state that when chrome crashes it only closes the TAB that is in error.

My crash closed the whole thing.

Of course vista is probably the culprit, those ms updates were ready for chrome! :wub

And why would it install itself here....
C:\Users\Colin\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Applica tion\chrome.exe

I mean have they never heard of "c:\program files" at google?

This is not beta software its pre-alpha!

I think you will find it's Vista not Chrome locating it in C:\Users\Colin
So it allows each user to have their own bookmarks/favourites etc
It isn't a problem - "It's a feature" :-)

Strange how other browsers do not need to install multiple copies for multi users.
Have google never heard of redundancy?
Obviously they think everyone has heaps of space on c:\users to hold plenty of google crap.
And people think microsoft is bloat!

Can't say I've used it just yet and despite all the talk about it online, it looks more like an SSB (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Site_Specific_Browser) (like Fluid (http://fluidapp.com/) or Prism (http://labs.mozilla.com/2007/10/prism/)) than anything else.
