Google Chrome?

Is anyone else using it?

My Firefox through a strop yesterday, and didn't want to save my forum logins any longer, which meant the tedious process of logging in every time I went on.

Suffice to say, after trying a re-install I just gave up, and downloaded chrome..

What can I say.. wow.. I love it.

It just looks the absolute sex, I love opening/closing tabs more than ever now

It also seems to be pretty fast, and I don't think I will be going back for firefox anytime soon.

I do use it occasionally, but I use Safari 4 now mostly.

They're about the same thing just skinned differently.

Google Chrome is faster because it is light.

Firefox has things like plug-ins to load every time.

Chrome is in no way light, it's got all the features firefox had.

I now use it on my EEE exclusively as firefox lagged to hell on it.

Once I build my desktop again, there's no going back

But don't forget. Firefox still has a huge amount of available plug-ins that Google Chrome doesn't and probably will never have.

I like Chrome/Safari 4 better than Firefox but I only use Firefox because of the plug-ins.

Out of interest, what plugins do you use? What plugins do you need?

Adblock plus, WOT, TinEYE Image search, McAfee SiteAdvisor, DownloadHelper, Battlefield Heroes Updater and Download Status Bar.

These are the most used custom ones.

I have a whole slew of plug-ins related to windows media player, quicktime and others.

Am using it right now actually, only 'cause I pressed the wrong quick-ink button

It's not bad but it's still not good enough to replace Firefox for me

That's the thing that put me off, but then my Firefox broke so I gave in...
