    Default Chrome browser

    I'm pretty sure this has been discussed before, but I'm lazy and can't find any recent threads.

    My question is, what's the general opinion of it? I've just started using it, mainly because I sometimes use my girlfriend's computer and she doesn't like me closing her browsers as she always have them connected and usually can't recall her passwords (oh, and she's not blonde!).

    I quite like it and have started using it on my own computer instead of my favourite browser suite; Seamonkey.

    Cheers

    I use it a lot - not all the time - but much of it.

    The biggest problem with Chrome (all variations of it too) are that I cannot get some streaming stations to run on it. It just sits there, looking like it's still loading and goes nowhere.

    For when it works, it's fast and supposedly doesn't suck all the resources outta your computer. Whatever that means.

    My favorite Chrome version is 'Canary Build'. A warning though - although I've never had any troubles with it ----


    Not for the faint of heart
    Canary is designed for developers and early adopters, and can sometimes break down completely.

    Nightly updates
    Canary changes almost every day.

    Side-by-side install
    Run Canary and Chrome Stable at the same time.

    +1 for Chrome ... never had a problem with it.

    SJ's problems probably relate to his credit card being maxed out .... Playboy online require payment BEFORE streaming starts ....

    And you know that exactly how, SP8's??

    Me too, as far as Chrome goes. Except where forbidden by IT policy (mutter, mutter, I'll install Firefox then, mutter, mutter)

    I have never seen SP8 in the buff. If I had, I'd be looking for a stick to poke out my eyes.
