    "Version 24.0.1312.27 beta-m"

    November 30, 2012  |   By jkirk1626

    Pros

    This is my main driver. As a beta, expect some quirks every now and then. No doubt that this is fast. Customized url search setup. In the url, you can customize, so that typing "m [space]" yields searching in maps instead of having to load a maps page then typing in your search. If you use lots of Google's eco system, then Chrome is naturally integrated and customized better than any other browser. Chrome's add-ons have expanded enormously in variety and quality.

    Cons

    Greed caused Google to disable all of its YouTube downloaders. It crossed my mind to give its browser one star for that. Whether government or private service provider, anytime you treat your citizens or customers like children, recognize it's a bad thing and the road to tyranny and serfdom.

    Summary

    Bugs pop up in updates every now and then. You will have to use IE for some sites, you will have to use FireFox for some tasks. day-to-day real world, though, Chrome Beta is fast and functional. Its add-ons and customization especially have improved.

    Def recommend.

    Google's Chrome fails to function in some of Google's own sites, such as Google Picasa, where FF and IE work better than Chrome. For example, Chrome won't zoom in and out of pics in Picasa, FF and IE will. Same goes for some Google Maps functionality. Google can be painfully slow fixing problems like this.
