I feel like a kid in a candy store.  Google Chrome 2.0 is very nice and fast.  Haven't had the time to read through all the legal stuff yet.  If I start getting direct marketing campaigns based on my searches I'll let you all know.

It's at google.com/chrome

i just cant do it.

I use a few plugs in FF that make my daily life WAY simpler.

also, i get creeped out that google is skimming my urls and I dont want them tracking my habits, since after all, i keep hitting some of my BH sites when I update code. Probably overthinking. and yes, I could use 2 browsers, FF for BH and crhome for normal stuff, but that just sounds like a pain in the ass.

I'm use to multiple browsers since I do proofing on FF and IE.  FF has a bug where you can't post a reply to a group in LinkedIn and IE works for that.  Not liking IE 8 at all though, not that the others were fun to use.  Bugs for days like page ugliness and it's slower than hell.

for site testing I have a bunch of VMs with each browser including down to IE6 and FF2 and safari and chrome.
But i just meant for daily use.

though this does make me wonder if maybe I should be doing my BH surfing and working inside a VM?
hm.....

G Chrome is still way beta, so who knows. I don't like Google apps, but that's just because I'm paranoid. When the Mac version gets a little more stable, I'll put LittleSnitch and a sniffer on it and watch exactly what's happening. I have a bad feeling that it's going to be another major player, and all I can hope for is that they move even deeper towards W3C standards, so that we have less work todo when deploying a damn site.

Chrome released 2.0 a few days ago (May 22'nd I think) but I do have privacy concerns about it.  When you say "way beta" are you referring to 2.0 beta or their actual release?

I'd love to see those results.

i think he means beta, in the respect of being not really finished and thought out.
It may be stable, but not un-beta.

The 'tubes seem to report that (Mac != stability) ~ Chrome. Way Beta meaning probably late alpha.

2.0 release seems pretty stable in Windows.  The 2.0 beta and earlier "releases" got spanked for being less than pre-alpha quality.  But the 2.0 actual release seems "ok" on the stability side and really nice on the performance.  All my work at Force.com has no bugs and everything snaps compared to FF (and of course IE).  In fact, Chrome has less visual bugs than IE 8 does.  Here's an example of the visual issues I'm referring to.  First is Firefox, then Google Chrome, and finally Internet Explorer 8.  The first two are rendered correctly and IE 8 has funky spacing:


Firefox:





Google Chrome:





Internet Deplorer 8:



 D'oh!

i've been using Chrome almost daily since google released it.  It is fast.  I like their UI a lot and I find it saves me a fair amount of time.  it still chokes up on javascript now and again.  their 'inspect element' & site-load monitor tools are pretty nice, but could be a lot nicer with some polishing.  I still use FF about half of the time, but all in all chrome ain't bad, and i wager that it is going to have a significant amount of marketshare sooner or later.

@perk
i'd like to see your experiment too =)  i'm sure ol googlie ain't letting all this free data just crumble into the aether you know ?

Indeed. But I'd bet that I'm already late to that party - certainly others have already looked at that angle and have ascertained that there's nothing other than the standard stuff going towards the server, or there'd be some serious disturbance in the force.

Meh.

People don't make bones about sending Google data. Just watch all the crap going on when you're on a site that runs Google Analytics.

Agree, if you're that free with it, who cares about much else?
