    Question Google Chrome who's using it ?

    If you are using it what are your views on it ?

    I've just this second installed it so haven't really had much experience with it yet.

    Had it for a bit and still have it installed. I don't really know why but I just ended up switching back to Firefox.

    It was nice and fresh at the time and looked all groovy and minimalist, but it was to simple I guess it made it boring for me. I like all the plugins and extras you can use with Firefox.

    I loved it as soon as I installed it - especially the minimalist approach. However, I was getting strange corrupt file errors whenever I used it. Even though it seemed to be working fine despite these errors, I decided to stop using it.

    Tried it but ended up going back to FF.

    Just loaded it up and there is another update. I'll give it a wizz for a bit. I don't think I have used it for about a month.

    It does indeed seem to load very fast.

    It's absolutely rapid, but doesn't have the customisation FF/Opera allows.

    lightening quick. my fave feature is right-click on the address bar and 'paste & go' rather than just paste like IE.

    Love the minimalism of it all and the dynamic start page.

    Found I've gone back to IE though. Firefox/Chrome just can't cut it when it comes to intranet/activex uses and running two separate browsers ain't gonna happen...

    I don't use Chrome but it might be worth taking a look at this

    I'm not sure if they've addressed issues and concerns noted in this article but it's maybe worth a read. Not suggesting you shouldn't use Chrome at all, just looking out for the DF'ers

    It was until some cnut had the worlds gif as a sig

    I use it as my main browser at work and at home. I had to use it work as they banned FF but i've since started using it at home. I like the search bar/google bar and how it looks and how it manages downloaded files. If i'm downloading loads of filth clips that are named 1.wmv etc it'll rename any duplicates to 1(1).wmv etc so I don't have too. A nice touch I though

    erm just noticed my own sig.... its not that big OK

    Tried it myself. But it didn't seem any faster for me and I appreciate it's a beta, but it's lacking many features I use on FF. Liked the way it looked though, so installed [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]on FF instead.

    It was banned because it wasn't secure What a bunch of fucking muppets.

    We manage windows updates using WSUS but there isn't a way to centrally manage firefox updates so we had to remove it from all PC's in the domain.
