  • Google Chrome Web Browser!

    http://www.google.com/chrome

    I saw the link on youtube and decided to try it out. All i can say is that it is way faster then IE and Firefox put together. I does something differently that load and download times seem to be super fast. I'm going to try this on the CarPC and see what happens. If this downloads faster then IE, then im switching permanently. Try it out guys and tell me what you think.

    I don't think it's any faster than IE7, or Firefox...
    Wait for your excitement/adrenaline to wear off then compare them

      It is faster on load times but I have multiple problems with it.

      1. Not compatible with Linux.
      2. My mouse wheel scrolls down at a double speed and doesn't scroll up at all.
      3. Not compatible with Linux.

        1. Don't use linux, so I have no issue.

        2. My mouse fine, so that's your problem

        3. Still don't use linux, so again that's your problem

          I have compared IE to GC.... only thing I dont like about GC is that its too simple. Does not have alot of options like IE. I am mainly conserned about speed though and yes GC is way faster.

            GC isn't ready for prime time. Anyone still using IE has been stuck in a dark closet for way too long. Firefox is the browser of choice right now.

              I like Chrome, but google has one of the worst license agreements. Seriously, it sucks. But their browser is the future. Now, if it gets a Silverlight and flash plugin, they are set.

                  Actually I should have said "Terms of Service"

                  But nevermind, they changed it:

                  Several eagle-eyed users and bloggers have expressed concern that Section 11 of Google Chrome's terms of service attempts to give us rights to any user-generated content "submitted, posted or displayed on or through" the browser.

                  You'll notice if you look at our other products that many of them are governed by Section 11 of our Universal Terms of Service. This section is included because, under copyright law, Google needs what's called a "license" to display or transmit content. So to show a blog, we ask the user to give us a license to the blog's content. (The same goes for any other service where users can create content.) But in all these cases, the license is limited to providing the service. In Gmail, for example, the terms specifically disclaim our ownership right to Gmail content.

                  So for Google Chrome, only the first sentence of Section 11 should have applied. We're sorry we overlooked this, but we've fixed it now, and you can read the updated Google Chrome terms of service. If you're into the fine print, here's the revised text of Section 11:
                  11. Content license from you
                  11.1 You retain copyright and any other rights you already hold in Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services.
                  And that's all. Period. End of section.

                  It will take a little time to propagate this change through the 40+ languages in which Google Chrome is available, and to remove the language in the download versions. But rest assured that we're working quickly to fix this. The new terms will of course be retroactive, and will cover everyone who has downloaded Google Chrome since it was launched.

                    Google Chrome

                    As a side note, I found in direct comparisons that Chrome does have some issues with "html standards compliance." In particular it renders certain types of stacked < DIV > elements like MSIE 6, while MSIE 7 has corrected the problem & now handles those like Firefox has since at least FF 1. The workaround is to code in an html table, but that sort of defeats the rationale behind XHTML.

                    But this isn't a developer's forum so... I've found Chrome is convenient because it does load up quickly & for 99% of the sites out there it's going to work fine unless there's some IE-only code involved... (Firefox can take eons to load up on my system the first time after a reboot...)
