Chrome browser is fast!

I just tried Google's Chrome browser and man is it fast. Do you think there are any serious privacy issues with it? Seeing as it's Google.

I'm using it too. A few problems with Java (can't pay my bills online). Otherwise a nice browser. I didn't bother to install FireFox again after trying Chrome.

Re: Chrome browser is fast!

I don't know, it's a little faster than normal I guess. But doesn't it seem almost too simple a layout?

Re: Chrome browser is fast!

All you need is there, really. Which buttons do you use in other browsers?

Re: Chrome browser is fast!

I'm not saying I would use anything other than what's there, I'm just not used to so little.

I see it as clean and uncluttered.

Re: Chrome browser is fast!

Google is a for profit company. I'd seriously suspect that there are, and will be major privacy concerns. Some of which I'm sure we won't even know about until later. They report everything to the government, such as who is searching for information on the flu and where they are. We don't know yet how virus's will be written for it. No add on's like Firefox. I'd be weary about it at first. I'll watch the tech geek reviews as they come out.

Re: Chrome browser is fast!

I heard they are working on a full operating system for PCs as well. Net statistics show that 30% or so of Google employees are beta-testing it.

It won't be for me though, last time I tried some of their software I was very disappointed (desktop search IIRC)

you'd be surprised because people just BELIEVE it's safe, but firefox isn't all that safe. it actually logs your saved passwords in plain english on your computer! anyone who knows what they are looking for can find it easily.

Re: Chrome browser is fast!

Firefox has too many features to ignore, especially if you are on multiple PCs (foxmarks). Plus it runs great on 64-bit systems. If you have an old, low memory PC use IE.

Start/create a new firefox profile w/o plugins and you'll be surprised how "fast" it is too.

Chrome needs a lot of work & features before it's even a consideration beyond "i'm bored lemme check this out".

Plus, lets get real.. does ANY google software actually work well, have a good interface, etc? Their software is as shovelware is they come IMHO... glen
