    "Just another browser. Much hyped than what it worths."

    Version: Google Chrome 6.0.472.59

    Pros

    Runs fast but still slower than its earlier versions and Safari 5 on my mac. Poor features.

    Cons

    Crashes frequently. Slower than its earlier versions and takes times in loading also. Awkward look. No 1password support.

    "After careful consideration, meh?"

    September 16, 2010  |   By Mackidockie

    Version: Google Chrome 6.0.472.59

    Pros

    Stable, quick, and accurate.

    Cons

    Unorthodox UI, mediocre cookie control, more tabs than Carter's has Little Liver Pills.

    Summary

    Chrome looks as though it was designed by engineers who "know what's best for you." Typical of Google products, it's close enough to be effective, but not quite there. Still, the browser works, and you can use it if you don't mind learning your way around a browser. Chrome wasn't worth the wait or the hype.

    "Slow in loading & rendering than it's earlier versions"

    September 12, 2010  |   By ajay.khush

    Version: Google Chrome 6.0.472.55

    Pros

    Google's smart move to use Apple's webkit engine.

    Cons

    With each of its latest version its getting slower than previous one. Takes time in loading, do not believe whatever google says. Use and see yourself. it's potential collecting user's data is not good. Features are poor.

    Summary

    Chrome 6 is not a match to Safari when it comes to mac. Even Firefox 3.6 and 4 beta loads and renders webpages with the same speed as Chrome does with, on my mac. Then why to bother about a browser with poor features and awkward look and security issue. There are more things than speed a browser should have.

    "Chrome 6 is slower than Safari 5 and Chrome 5"

    September 7, 2010  |   By iajay

    Version: Google Chrome 6.0.472.53

    Pros

    Renders webpages with very fast just like Safari 5.

    Cons

    Chrome 6 is much slower than Chrome 5, and takes lot of time in loading. I do not like Chrome collecting user's ID, and stuff like that. Not safe to use.

    Summary

    Snappier like Safari but features are not great. Chrome is getting slower and takes more time to load, with its each new version. Even Firefox 4 beta renders webpages with equal speed.

    July 23, 2010  |   By sexyguynotinthecity

    Version: Google Chrome 5.0.375.99

    Pros

    Fast
    Easy
    Simple

    Cons

    No Cons
    Error: Please enter at least 10 characters (you entered 7 characters).

    Summary

    I am not those internet browser expert in anyway, but when I was a kid, I love to use the MS IE and Later I found it very suck, so when the is the firefox come out, I change to FF and it works for me, pretty fast FF, but it use a lot of my old computer's cpu and memory, so I am not really in love with the FF. And Here we got the Fast Google Chrome. GC is super light on my cpu and it let me browse the net pretty fast in many way. Haven't crack one time in 5 months compared to the old IE that always pop up huge amount of ad and I need to click and click to take it aways. IE is really hell and GC is paradise.
