    Well, google takes another step towards internet domination releasing their own web browser:

    Google Chrome - Download a new browser

    It's fast. Like really, really fast. It's also based on Webkit so don't freak out about having to develop for yet ANOTHER browser. For being released today, this show a lot of promise. I'll probably end up using Firefox for now, but once they get an ad-block I'll come back to it.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    I've been poking around on Chrome for a bit and it seems pretty solid. I'm just glad that I don't have to worry about even more browser specific development.
    I look forward to seeing how this bowser competes with the others. Maybe it will help convert all the ie lovers

    Looks good. I use Firefox but lately it has really slowed down in regard to loading pages. I was convinced it was malware but Ive run just about every scan out there and cleared all the temp files, caches etc... and I'm clean. Also tweaked my Firefox config file for speed which helped marginally. Might be worth a try for me.

    it is very, very nice. don't want to switch topics but i really cant wait to see the finished android product at launch

    I'm liking it, a few quarks though. Does it have spell check and I like the Most Visited page, can it be made into a home page?

    I disagree there, Reeko. Safari's lack of plug-in management and impractical bookmark interface really puts me off. But I guess that's an opinion.

    I'm looking forward to Chrome, I want see if that gets me to switch browsers.

    You can set the most visited as a home page by going to tools (the wrench icon at upper right) and then Options. You can then set new tab as home page. Alternatively you can set a home page and access the most visited page by clicking on the plus sign in the tab bar to open a new tab which seems to show the most visited pages by default.

    It does have spell check.
