"Chrome render pages *almost* as fast as Google iterates"
Fast boot; fast rendering; maintains speed & stability even with 50+ active pages in individual tabs. Eventually crashes (catastrophically), but long after competing browsers have quit in disgrace, plus Chrome always recovers gracefully.
Google closely monitors our crash reports plus other metrics gathered behind the scenes, so problems (ie: surprise bugs) can suddenly appear out of thin air and then vanish (ie: code fixes), just as quickly. This cycle may disturb the faint of heart.
Top marks. The best browser for Macs on Snow Leopard or Lion (previews) -- has been for many months. The rendering alone leaves Safari, Explorer, and Opera in the dust. Like many Macheads, I love Firefox for the flexibility of their huge add-ons catalog but even FF4 can't match Chrome for speed, stability, or pace of improvement. And, since Chrome's add-ons are improving by the day (recent offerings include a Greasemonkey clone), I suspect it won't be long before Firefox loses that edge, as well. For now, Chrome4Mac is the uncrowned king. Try it -- you'll like it.
