I'm excited about it.  Competition is a good thing.  It's WebKit based so it should be a solid as Safari as far as validating is concerned.  Yet I like the differences it has to offer.

It'll hurt Firefox more than IE.  People still using IE are resisting (or don't care about) upgrading their browser anyway.  People using Firefox are open to trying new things.  (Generalization, of course)

Not yet, but it'd be great if it could improve enough to beat out opera as our backup browser.

For what does one need a "backup browser"?

Interesting that it doesn't allow you to use Chat in Gmail.

Not yet, but it'd be great if it could improve enough to beat out opera as our backup browser.

Opera has been demoted to 3rd string for a while now. The current depth chart is:

Firefox    Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool
K-Meleon     Cool Cool Cool
Opera - Chrome Cool Cool
IE Disgusted

You would know that if you ever paid attention. Cheesy



As far as Chrome:

Not enough options to configure. I hate defaults. No about:config to tweak to death.

No extensions.

Firefox's speed is still superior.

I understand the security feature by having every tab use it's own process, but averaging 1MB to 45+MB (although the process priority is set down to "below normal" on the least used ones) *per* tab, with normally 20+ tabs open = RAM Hog.

Too simple of a UI. Smiley

And leave it to google to add a update process on your system start-up for a browser. Wink

But it *is* a beta so lots of things will obviously change.
