"Very Good with one MASSIVE flaw..."
Fast (Chrome and Safari 6 run neck and neck)
Forces AMD Discrete Graphics in 2011 MacBook Pros
Google Chrome is a very refined browser, though I prefer Safari (just personal preference), but it has one MAJOR flaw that keeps me from ever using it...
Google Chrome forces my MacBook Pro's Discrete AMD Graphics which cuts my battery life by 40%-60% and causes overall system heating. I have read many posts (on Apple Discussions, MacRumors, and Google Discussions) on the issue, although I'm surprised more people don't complain about it. On any site that uses advanced graphics, Chrome forces hardware acceleration which kills battery life. Even cnet.com activates AMD with Chrome. . . really? I don't know if this issue affects 2012 Macs, but it is a serious issue for notebook users. Safari and FireFox do not do this.
You can check what your system is using by clicking the Apple>About This Mac>More Information. It should say Intel instead of AMD (Or Nvidia for new/pre 2011 Macs) unless you are using an intensive program like iPhoto or iMovie.
This is an unacceptable flaw that renders Chrome useless.
