(Closed) Google Chrome (browser)(34 posts)
So, this browser is only for people who read comic books? :-P
After reading the entire comic book, there are certainly some compelling ideas in there. All of the separate processes makes me think that my quad core CPU could be rendering 4 pages at once, or 4 parts of one page, and so on. However, if each tab and plugin is a separate process, I would think that my Task Manager list will fill up with Google Chrome processes.
All of the talk about security and sandboxing sounds good on paper, but we will have to see if it works as advertised.
This is all over the web, but thanks to HTG, I read it here first.
Made me curious, so I googled it up, (where else but Google News) and formed my own opinion.
Not something that I'll like to add to my machine.
Down the road Googles relationships with pc manufacture's will see them selling box's with this thing pre-loaded.
Much like the tool bar is now. Scary!
ScottW is right about process's eating up the cpu. Who wants that?
Using it right now as I post this. I like it so far. Seems fast and no required plugin addons. Initial impression is positive. We'll see in the days to come. Firefox is still my default... for now.
Uh oh. Looks like OzSpitt has been assimilated by the Borg Collective. I suppose that resistance was futile. :-)
I can't remember who, but some guy on TV said that if the NSA wanted to monitor the information of the American people, they would have invented Google. Or words to that effect. Of course, there are conspiracy nuts out there who believe this is what happened, or that the two are in cahoots now. Yes, Alex Jones, I'm talking to you!
Of course, there are still folks that believe the moon landing was faked -- did anyone see the recent Mythbusters episode? I would like to have the Mythbusters investigate whether Google has supplanted Microsoft as the IT company striving for world dominance. I'm just afraid that they would be "disappeared".
Pros: speed and tabbed sandbox
Cons: lack of configurability, memory usage, no bookmark sidebar, etc. Too many to list.
Next to Google Sidebar, this is the least impressive app Ive seen them deliver. Yes, I'll be patient, no I won't even bother to keep it.
I like it so far. I miss all of my FF plug ins, but hopefully they will come in time. It's definitely not ready to be my only browser. I love the way it launches almost instantly and pages seem to load a lot faster.
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.
speed ang tabbed safety is what drools me.
other than that, lots of things missing like bookmarks eating up screen real estate, not very configurable, to name a many.
@HTG: love the "Mario?" wallpaper
i don't care if they made ie 20 or opera 20.5 there's nothing that is going to compare or beat the big bad FOX.just deal with it ,live with it ,just handle the damn truth!!!!!!!!! it's all about firefox plain an simple
