Default Google Chrome

Google now has their own web browser called Chrome. I'm downloading it right now. I wonder if it will be as customizable as Firefox.

I like it so far. Its interface is very minimal, just as you'd expect from Google. It loads very quickly. It works well so far and I've tested a couple pages that give Firefox some trouble and they work fine. I'd probably use it as my secondary browser for now. If it supports addons like Firefox though I could see that changing.

Any cool tips for Chrome? My Macbook Air has been running slow and hot as hell with Firefox, and I read that Chrome runs better on Mac. Hoping it makes a difference.

I use it exclusively now. No tips per se but goddamn it's so slick, sexy and easy to use.

I know this is three months old replying to this post, but did you ever wind up trying this, Billy? I LOVE Chrome! I have a MacBook Pro, and it runs so much better with Chrome than with any other browser. In fact, I downloaded it back in February when I started my classes, because our class website - where our grades and assignments were posted - didn't run well on a Mac. It barely showed up in Firefox, and didn't run that well in Safari. I downloaded Chrome, and had no problems - and I still use it as my main browser even though my class is done. I never even went back to Safari!

I actually just recently gave up the ghost on Chrome. Adblock wasn't working well at all, and I was having issues getting it to block certain things. On other pages videos and stuff just wouldn't show at all. And I saw a pretty crappy performance drop compared to FF. I'm saving right now for a Macbook Pro, because my Air is getting up there and the specs are shit compared to what's new right now, and then I will give Chrome another run.

Wow, that's a shame! Well, give it another try once you switch to a MacBook Pro. It runs like a dream on mine.

Yea, I think the biggest issue for me was performance and that will be solved with an upgrade. If I continue to have issues with ads not blocking and certain elements being blocked on pages I'll probably pass on it again. I'm a Google whore, so it disappoints me that I'm not over the moon for it.

OK, I'm on the Chrome bandwagon. Aside from really bad pop-up blocking, it's made me happy. offer extension/theme recommendations please.

I'm back on Safari. Chrome went nuts on me a couple of months back, so I told it to pack its shit and get the fuck out. It begged me to take it back, it promised it would never do it again, it drunk dialed me in the middle of the night and cried and begged and pleaded, but I stood firm. Safari took me back, and we're happier than ever!
