Thread: Google Chrome

  1. #1

    Default Google Chrome

    Anyone use it? What do you think?

    I think it's great so far. Been using it for 2 days and it's soooo much faster than Firefox and IE.

    Opera FTW.

    I can't trust google after reading their original EULA for Chrome.

    I would try it if it saved passwords. But it doesnt. The only way it saves passwords, is if it imports them when you install it. I tried chromeplus last night, which is meant to be better / a few more options in it. But it kept crashing. So, that was the end of that

    Dunno where you got your Chrome from, but mine always has. Perhaps if you were using some form of a beta build that had it temporarily disabled? See the attachments.

    Personally I've not used anything else for coming up a year now. Get the latest Dev build which supports Extensions and much more:

    It's incredibly fast, even compared with Firefox / Opera

    I've never used betas, I've always used finals or the devs. And none of them save passwords. Unless theyre imported (from FF), when I install Chrome. Dont know if its because I'm using x64 or not. Thats the only other reason I can think of why they dont work. Yup and offer to save passwords is enabled by default. But I can save passwords in FF

    I'm using both 64-bit on my Desktop and 32-bit on my Netbook. Never had any issues. I wonder if it doesn't like it due to importing your settings from Firefox?

    Tried it - but then went back to Firefox solely because of it's huge array of addons.
