    "Well on the way to 5 stars"

    September 13, 2008  |   By hanksite

    Version: Google Chrome 0.2.149.27

    Pros

    layout and tool bar/tabs- quick loading Like with Google, i like the logic of the program that makes it easy to use and to get used to.

    Cons

    dead link messages - programs/plug ins that will not run

    Summary

    As more programs get on board and can run in Chrome, its value and use will greatly increase. Even now to start it flows smoothly. When it does crash it closes instead of like some other browsers that lock up or freeze the entire system. Need to bring Robocop and others into the system.

    "WOW THAT WAS EASY!!!"

    September 12, 2008  |   By killerbadger1994

    Version: Google Chrome 0.2.149.27

    Pros

    Personally i like and use Mozilla Firefox. When i installed this it was slow, and made Firefox crash a lot!

    Cons

    The only good thing i can say about it is IT AS VERY EASY TO UNINSTALL!!!!!!!!!

    Summary

    The set up is not that good, just trying to copy everyone else two versions ago. Terrible coding with lots of flaws that cause it to run slow. It causes other programs to run differently which just slowed the whole computer down!

    Updated on Sep 12, 2008

    idk where u are or what u r using but google chrome was really slow 4 me

    "Just as fast as firefox 3.0; beats IE 7 in speed easily"

    September 8, 2008  |   By julianwoj

    Version: Google Chrome 0.2.149.27

    Pros

    Overall, it is a great browser, but still needs work to beat the 20% share of the firefox market. Fast, great interface, easy to use and minimal; possibly too minimal

    Cons

    There are many issues I have with this chrome browser. There are no RSS feeds, but I am sure they will put this in. Next in line is there are no extensions which then leads on to it being too bare and minimulistic for me, and there is a privacy issue

    Summary

    Overall, like what I am seeing, but needs more work, needs more extensions and I do not like the way google chrome logs every keystroke and sends it to google which means it could be classed as spyware and this for me is the dealbreaker. Untill google change their privacy policy, this is taking invasion of privacy WAY TO FAR!

    "Best browser out there"

    September 8, 2008  |   By omarko_54

    Version: Google Chrome 0.2.149.27

    Pros

    Very simple and easily used browser

    Cons

    Meets all users needs

    Summary

    Since google chrome is a newly made browser it meets all internet surfing needs of gaming- watching videos- playing songs. It is a simple very easy to understand browser with an interface like MAC OS.
    This one will sure kick all other browsers of the path

    ""wow such big pages""

    September 8, 2008  |   By jmphillips76

    Version: Google Chrome 0.2.149.27

    Pros

    Easy to use without all the unneeded things of many other browsers, rather enjoy the most visited windows. Fast loading, clean looking.

    Cons

    none that are major, would like options to change colors.

    Summary

    All in all a good browser, I was using opera for the past couple months and before that I was using Firefox, just try'n to figure what browser besides IE to use on a regular. I just started using Maxthon ... which I will say is a very good browser. But I like this overall the best right now due to the look and feel of the "slimmed-down" browser

    "Simplistic and Minimalistic Browser"

    September 7, 2008  |   By Nuraniah

    Version: Google Chrome 0.2.149.27

    Pros

    Love the minimalist look of it. Especially love the designated bookmark button. Love the fact that with so few toolbars it can function as well as the IE. Clean interface.

    Cons

    Interface could be improve. Add some colour to it. :) or allow more room for personalization.
    Enable it to bookmark just like opera 9. Drag and make it a toolbar.

    Summary

    great new browser. still room for improvement to be the best.
