    "Pretty good software"

    September 1, 2014  |   By richardwesley

    Version: Google Chrome 37.0.2062.94

    Pros

    It's pretty fast and works with most web sites. The search window allows some customization so that you are not stuck with using Yahoo, Bing, or Google Search

    Cons

    I can't login some profiles using Chrome

    "Chrome is always more stable than Safari"

    February 26, 2014  |   By Rage SW

    Version: Google Chrome 33.0.1750.117

    Pros

    I find Chrome to be a lot more stable than Safari especially, not surprisingly, for Google services which I use a lot of (gmail, youtube, etc...)

    I like how Private browser is per browser window rather than for the entire app (like in Safari) as this resets cookie data for websites that are currently opened in browser windows.

    Cons

    Still like the UI of Safari better. Of all the web browsers, Safari just feels more like a Mac app.

    "STILL NO 64-BIT VERSION (MAC)"

    November 7, 2013  |   By JCPayne

    Version: Google Chrome 30.0.1599.69

    Pros

    Liked it. Has nice feel to it.

    Cons

    Plugins constantly scream that Chrome for mac isn't 64-bit yet. Surprising that with the billions Google has and the amount of time which has passed that they can't create a 64-bit version for MAC.

    "Good browser, unwanted additions."

    June 16, 2013  |  

    Version: Google Chrome 27.0.1453.110

    Pros

    Very fast web page access.
    Good use of book marks when it registers them (see below).

    Cons

    There are many programs and applications installed that I don't trust and don't want to use. I spent a good amount of time cleaning out 'added' programs.
    I re-installed Chrome, and there were still some add-ons that I don't want, and haven't figured out how to remove.
    If this continues, I'm going over to Opera. I've had similar experiences with Mozilla Firefox.
    Another point: Chrome did not add a bookmark to my Bookmark Tool Bar after three attempts.
    I am very frustrated.

    Summary

    Too many unwanted additions.

    "A little bit disappointed"

    June 7, 2013  |   By piusag

    Version: Google Chrome 27.0.1453.110

    Pros

    It's relatively fast, solid, and easy to use. It's great to open HTML5 websites (better than Safari).

    Cons

    Chrome is kinda slow on my macbook pro when I use Google search from the address bar. On many occasions, it's just freeze for couple seconds before it displays the search results.

    Summary

    Well I'm not sure if I'm the only one who experiences this laggy performance with Chrome, otherwise it's a solid browser. Many people say it takes a lot of RAM; it's true. But shouldn't really affects your mac if you have 4GB+ memory.

    "No good for Mac users - unless you've got lots of RAM"

    June 6, 2013  |   By ntpipgras

    Version: Google Chrome 24.0.1312.57

    Pros

    Tabs, bookmarks, easy linkage with other stuff.

    Cons

    Chrome renderer sucks up RAM. Tired of my Macbook Pro running hot and having to check my monitor all the time. I'm back to Firefox.

    "Crashes all the time...Mac users AVOID"

    May 25, 2013  |   By Smoorf

    Version: Google Chrome 27.0.1453.94

    Pros

    Fast...but it crashes all the time so what's the point?

    Cons

    See title. I'm on 10.7.5 and it crashes all the time for no reason. Thought it was Flash but Flash is the latest version.

    Summary

    Apparently Google is doing nothing about this. See thread below: http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/8VisL1VI3lg%5B1-25-false%5D

    Going back to Firefox.
