Chrome vs Everything Else

Hey guys!

I'm thinking of giving Chrome a shot, but I'm a huge believer in giving something five seconds to impress me and if it doesn't, moving on or regressing to whatever else I was using (I had a facebook account for about 18 months before I actually added anyone). My own faults aside, has anyone used Chrome for longer than the aforementioned five seconds and was it any use?

Let me know!

:)

well im using it at the moment on my netbook, its pretty fast, has a nice in address bar search feature which i use a lot, pretty minimal display when you hide the bookmarks bar to give you that extra bit of space.

only bad thing is the lack of adblock, but im trying to get past that using the mvps hosts file to block everything.

best thing about it is that tabs our individual threads, each one acts like a indipendant program, but the tabs can be together in one window, or dragged out into seperate windows, and then back again.

This prevents slow downs or lockups in one, like if you opened a new IE instead of using tabs, but still having the benefits of the tabs.

Also, you can reorganize on the fly, sometime I pull a tab out so I can have it side by side, then drop it back in so I don't have multiple windows.

Hmm perhaps I will give it a try. One last thing, do you guys JUST use Chrome? As in, is it good enough to replace Firefox, IE or Safari or do you use Chrome AND something else?

I am using firefox at the moment, but I have chrome too. For me, the best thing in chrome is its design.

i love chrome's design, but its incompatibility with a few sites (not all sites support chrome use) requires me to keep IE on my computer.

I use Chrome, Firefox, and IE. Chrome handles all my webmail (one window, two tabs). Firefox is for my regular browsing. I only use IE because it's the only browser capable of running Outlook Web Access with full functionality. :) 

Personally, Chrome isn't my workhorse, as Google's still working its kinks out. Maybe when they finally stop calling it a beta that's when I'll take it seriously.
