    "I love it, but...."

    June 8, 2010  |   By garyfeister

    Version: Google Chrome 5.0.375.55

    Pros

    This browser is fast, sleek and very user friendly. I love the fact that it doesn't take over a large amount of screen (like Firefox does). It's very well thought out browser with speed and simplicity being the key features.

    Cons

    The problems for me are: 1) it doesn't always work with other sites and applications (it works with most, but not all); 2) it doesn't have Print Selection (major drawback for me). If you can't do it all from one browser, then it's no good...yet.

    Summary

    I am very hopeful for Chrome. If they work out all the bugs and shortcomings, I'll definitely use it as my #1 browser. But as long as I have to keep closing out of Chrome and going to another browser just to do simple tasks that are common to web surfers everywhere, I'll just keep using Safari and waiting for the ultimate Chrome version to be released.

    "compatible!! best than Firefox.. and fast!"

    June 6, 2010  |   By Osiris The Huginn Hermit

    Version: Google Chrome 5.0.375.55

    Pros

    Opens more web pages than Firefox... Faster... Love it!! go to the plug ins page so you can configure a little bit this web browser. I can open PDF, adobe flash video, can print some pages that firefox wont...

    Cons

    Sometimes you'll have to refresh a web page so that it can load some plugins... Doesn't has the option to configure buttons.. kinda what you see is what you have... Difficult, but possible to change or restore skins and to chage search engine...

    Summary

    Fast, compatible, light... plain & simple... Needs some fixes so you wont need to refresh web pages to a plug in runs... dont try to add or remove buttons.. you cant! jaja

    USE IT ABOVE FIREFOX :)

    "Not noticeably different from the Beta - but fast!"

    June 1, 2010  |   By kshores

    Version: Google Chrome 5.0.375.55

    Pros

    1. Really fast (my opinion faster than Safari and Firefox)
    2. Stable, when something crashes only affects one tab
    3. Aesthetics are clean - comparable to Safari; I prefer to Firefox

    Cons

    Javascript handler is lackluster (e.g. chess.com is much worse on Chrome than on firefox)

    Summary

    I end up using Chrome 90% of the time and keep firefox running in the background so I can play chess online. If they get their javascript stuff going then it'll be my full time browser.

    "Fast, can be skinned, lots of extensions, bye Firefox"

    May 27, 2010  |   By armwood

    Version: Google Chrome 5.0.375.55

    Pros

    It is very fast, much faster than Firefox. I especially love the blue skin from the skin gallery. It has plenty of extensions. I am using the Adblock, Download. Weather channel and 1Password beta extension

    Cons

    None so far except that Open DNS shortcuts do not work with this browser.

    Summary

    have spent a few days with Google's new browser, Chrome, for Mac. My initial impression is that it is extremely fast, in comparison to Safari and especially Firefox. There are plenty of extensions and themes. One important extension for many Mac users is the 1Password extension. There is a beta version of 1Password available at Chrome Beta Extension version 0.6.2
    It works well enough even though it has some feature limitations in comparison to its full fledged Safari and firefox counterparts.

    In conclusion do not hesitate to download Chrome. It is a significant leap forward in the browser wars.
