Just downloaded Google’s new browser, Chrome. Â Wow. Â Super fast. Â I can’t even type fast enough to keep up. Â The only review I can give right now is “fast”. Â Hopefully I’ll get some time later to give it a more thorough test drive. Â Check back for updates.

I like the ‘fast’ too … my FF3 has an issue with maxing out my CPU cycles like no one’s business. Right now, with 6 tabs open in Chrome (and 5 processes running in Task Manager), and PowerPoint and Word 2007 open, I am only using 20 – 35% CPU cycles.
I like the resizable text entry boxes. See that? Down in the lower right corner of the comment box? Way cool!
But I miss a few key FF extensions … Tab Mix Plus, Greasemonkey scripts, but those are mostly for my convenience. More usage will tell what all is really missing in that regard. I hope, with Chrome being Open Source, that there will be future development of plugins and extensions.
So far, so good …
@LissaKay Cool on the text boxes! I saw your tweet about that earlier but didn’t get a chance to try it until just now.
Every tab in Chrome is a separate process, so the way it should work is that a slow process in one tab won’t affect the others. You could even crash a tab and not lose the whole browser–pretty nice.
Like you, I can’t wait for extensions!
