chrome—google’s web browser feels fast, yes. the linux version just came out a couple of weeks ago and its only now that i was able to sprinkle my impressions about it on this blog.
what doesn’t work for me so far, is that i can’t preview my posts in a mailing list i manage in yahoo groups. clicking on the preview button just gives me, essentially, a blank page. not good. but i do realize that this may not be a chrome problem but using firefox and opera works. also some add-ons in that i use in firefox is not yet available or only has the ‘lite’ version in chrome. i use noscript in firefox but there is no equivalent in chrome.
what does work for me is the way the interface comes out as uncluttered and that i get some extra screen space. importing settings and bookmarks from firefox was a breeze. it even imported the passwords i use in the sites i visit. and of course i like the speed.
so far its been good to me. there are minor quirks for the week that i have been using it but it’s nothing major. i’m thinking of what mozilla might be bringing to the table next.
