    "My default browser"

    January 10, 2011  |   By KosakiHook

    Pros

    Speed, clean look, Chrome Web Store, sync

    Cons

    Occasionally crashes

    Summary

    I really enjoy using Google Chrome 8 on all my computers. I started using the original Chrome a couple years back, but uninstalled it. Initially, I missed having the Google toolbar, google bookmarks. I also had some problems with crashes and instability. The newest version so far seems to be better. Now with the Chrome Web Store, I've added a Google Bookmark Extension, Amazon price tracker, IE-based tab, weather, mouse gestures and others. I don't miss the Google toolbar anymore that I had on my IE and FF browser. The stability seems to be better. It has a nice modern, clean look.

    I installed Chrome to all of my computers (7 yr old Compaq Presario, 3.5 yr old HP Pavillion, and 4 .5 yr old Macbook Pro).

    I still have IE, FF, and Opera (on one of my computers). Now, I rarely use any of the others.

    I worked on one of relatives Compaq desktop that had slowed to a crawl. I uninstalled a lot of the crapware, used CCleaner, defragged the HDD, and installed Chrome. Now for websurfing, it runs like a dream.
