I am test-running Chrome! And I must say, I am not vastly impressed. I suppose it might be slightly faster. Sometimes. And they say that it's crash-proof, or whatever. That is, if one tab fails, the whole browser doesn't have to shut down. And I mean, that's great. But at what cost? It doesn't have the drop-down search engine menu! Plus, I feel like a traitor. Firefox and I have been together for a long time. It's just that Ffx has been freezing up and shutting down on me lately, and even though I know that it saves my (15) tabs so that they'll show up when I reopen, it still stresses me out and wastes time. I still feel like a faithless wretch. Sigh.


  1. Chrome seems thin to me. I feel like I just don't have any control over what's happening when I use it. "What? Where am I? What's my purpose in life" are my most common sentiments.

    It's nice to have each tab as an individual process, but this can be upsetting for slower computers and can lead to more frequent problems.

    Opera is where my loyalties have been for many years. It is incredibly fast, but can (at times) lack support for some java and flash scripts or plugins.

    Firefox = power. It is very powerful. It can do a whole crapload of stuff.

    It's just to slow...

    I think we can all agree that anything is better than Internet Exploder

  2. ahhhh. i'm using google chrome right now and i kind of love it. it's SO MUCH FASTER than firefox. SOOOO much faster. i finally caved when i wasn't able to load pages in ff... and no, it wasn't my internet, i wasn't insane... ff was just being slow. ughhh
