    Google Chrome

    Has anyone tried out the new Google browser? Been using today and I have to say other than a few image issues (maybe issue with our proxy), it works really well. Much faster than IE.

    I only run XP on one box, so I give it a try on that one, otherwise, FireFox has been good to me........

    IE.......... people STILL use IE

    I loaded it yesterday. It looks pretty promising, especially for complex web applications. It'll be interesting to see the adoption rate vs. IE. I hope it doesn't just cut in to the firefox share...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Me neither. But I do hope they follow Google's lead with the multi threading. I hate when one page ties up the browser or crashes it and you've got other pages open.

    Bill, you know better than that...
    From my developers, and I trust them... and they totally love Firefox, of course!

    For anyone trying out Google's new Chrome brower, be careful.

    Chuck, I also use iGoogle, but that's a totally different beast than Google Chrome. Google Chrome is a whole new browser...iGoogle is a customizable home home page within any browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer, or any other one).
