Ok, so Google created a browser. I haven’t spent a ton of time playing with it, but its worth a look if you haven’t downloaded it yet. It can be downloaded for windows only right now at http://google.com/chrome. Below are my thoughts:
1. It seems to load pages (particularly AJAX based apps) quite quickly.
2. It seems to respond quickly in general as far as switching between tabs and pages and such.
3. I like the tabs in the top bar and not having them take up the normal bar – it made the whole thing seem like it had a lot more space (although I do also have the web developer toolbar taking up a row too…)
4. I need some of my add-ons from Firefox, namely Adblock Plus. I just could not stand to use it for very long for real web searching with all the ads interrupting me…
Overall opinion – I like it but I will wait and let it develop before I think hard about adopting it as my default browser.
