"Google embedded iframes maps do not render in Chrome 30"

October 05, 2013  |  By trafficmess

 |  Version: Google Chrome beta 31.0.1650.8

Pros

Personally I am unable to see the pros considering all the behind-the-scenes problems with this upgrade.

Cons

There are many map-rendering issues. In particular the embedded iframe Google maps on so many many websites out there. They no longer render completely. It is amazing that all the techie reviews of the new Chrome do not mention any of the many problems and dissatifaction voiced on Googles own forums by webmasters and map developers. What's up with all these phony rave reviews?

"I prefer several menus and buttons on top"

July 06, 2013  |  By cesarinternational

 |  Version: Google Chrome beta 28.0.1500.70

Pros

It is fast.

Cons

One drop down menu on the side for everything makes doing things slower to do. I prefer menus on top and even a toolbar is fine. Aurora has drop down menus on top. I suggest that Chrome offers the ability of having menus on top. User who do not want that (such as when taking snapshots of web pages) will not use or turn off/hide them.

Summary

Until they do not add menus on top it will not be my favorite browser. They basically allow for the Home button and they could add more buttons there. It would be great if browsers displayed at the bottom right side how much memory they are using and be able to turn that feature off.

"It fits me, using the KISS method, Excellent!"

June 05, 2013  |  By STRAVO96

 |  Version: Google Chrome beta 28.0.1500.29

Pros

It is fast, simple to use as user friendly without the bells and whistles suits me to a "T". I have been with CHROME for a long time. I have been down the road with IE9 crashes, FF is good but, Chrome is part of me. even though I am Cautiously Optimistic for what the future portends for all of us and the internet as a whole. Google Chrome has all the tools and apps which I can't do without either!. Just do it.

Cons

None of any substance.

Summary

Chrome is still the best for me, I can't nit pick any system. Chrome is where everything is for me and the best.

"Version 24.0.1312.27 beta-m"

November 30, 2012  |  By jkirk1626

 |  Version: Google Chrome beta 24.0.1312.27

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.

Updated on Nov 30, 2012

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.
