I wouldn't say it's better than anything yet. It still needs a lot of polishing. However, it is off to a great start i think.

I expect this EULA to be sorted out soon - if by nothing else than the European Union watchdogs. But like with any new stuff, I would wait until the edges got smoothed.

@whs
Just exactly what web browsers do you have?

I was somewhat impressed by Google Chrome. It is very simple, which is not a bad thing, but there are certain Firefox add-ons that I have to install every time I install Firefox on a new computer.

So what exactly in the EULA is causing the major problem? I read the EULA but because I wasn't planning on doing anything other than see how Chrome ran, I didn't go over with with a fine-toothed comb.

Looks like Google has already changed the language in the EULA to address the concerns:

EDIT: however, Google will save information typed into the OmniBox if you let them:

jmcguire, Answering your question: I use the IE most, but also Opera and AOL (which has helped me out many times when the others did not work). Have used FF a while ago, but did not like it.
