Hey guys,

I just want your opinions on Google Chrome. Everyone's talking about it, but I want to know why I should bother changing from my ol' friend Internet Explorer.

So, why google chrome? If you have another good browser please share

You can see this thread for a debate between IE and FF: Internet Explorer Vs Firefox

I haven't used Chrome. I don't see a reason to switch from FF.

I use IE and have never had an issue. I'm always curious as to why others seem to.
I'm not sure who "everyone" is but I haven't heard any real talk yet about Google Chrome and have very little interest.

What would be the advantage?

I like chrome but I'm sticking with FF as I am dependent on my addons

I've downloaded and tried Google Chrome twice now and still prefer IE or FF.

Correction "everyone WAS talking about it". I do not hear anything about Google Chrome anymore. I installed it and used it for maybe a day or two. No matter what I always go back to my Firefox.

There HAS been a lot of media coverage of Chrome, I do agree. eWeek, Cnet, ZDNet, etc.

BUT, I have three browsers installed: IE, FF and Chrome. I used to be a huge fan of IE, but then I decided to switch due to it being rather slow in GMail (and also resource intensive). I don't have the latest system, so it matters. Most of the time now I use FF.

@ Blue: I didn't have any issues with IE either, but there are two special features that FF has won me over with: address bar URL history search and speed with Gmail.

hmm it really depends on you. But here is the summary, for me there are 2 best browsers

1.] FireFox - for plugins
2.] Chrome - for speed.

I am currently using Google Chrome, and so far I love it. It has a very minimalist layout which is one of the reasons why I like it.

May we ask why you don't trust Google? Something in particular?

I'm using IE 8.0 at this moment, I do not like it though. Why did we go back to squared corners when round was so hot. Why do they need to install all kinds of crap with it. I just want the damn browser.

I do love Google Chrome though. I have it install and as the primary for both Office & Home Office. So simple and easy to use. It seems to have some hard times with vbulletin though.

Fire fox I have never fell in love it. Opara is ok too. Being a design customizer it makes it nice to have all of them to check them.
