ooooo looks promising.
All the details are there and easiest to read. Launches tomorrow (9/2). Definitely giving it a shot because I want to see if it tops Firefox. Their 'comic' about is is a nice touch though.

No Mac and no Linux yet makes me a sad panda.
I'll be keeping an eye on it though - will be very interesting to see how Google does.
I'll definitely try it out. If it is good, I'll start using it instead of FF3 at home. If not, no major loss.
I'm using Chrome right now. It's fast, but right off the bat I've run into a problem.
It seems to allow me to use my scroll bars only for scrolling down a page, not up.
I can scroll up and down with no problem.
...if anyone else wants to try go to :
What kind of computer/trackpad driver?
Posting from it right now. I'm actually quite impressed with it. I wish it had smoother scrolling, but that may come later.
I've asked around elsewhere. I'm not the only one having scrollbar issues, though it doesn't appear to be widespread.
I'll be shelving Chrome until this gets fixed, though. It's just too annoying to not have proper scrolling.
I have no issues scrolling here. The only problem I have with scrolling is that its a little too quick on how far it jumps but I haven't dived into the settings yet since I just had it import all my FF settings/bookmarks to make it a little easier to use.
Using it now and it is pretty snappy. I like the little bits of info it mentions in regards to what won't be "blocked" in incognito mode
Going incognito doesn't affect the behavior of other people, servers, or software. Be wary of:
Websites that collect or share information about you
Internet service providers or employers that track the pages you visit
Malicious software that tracks your keystrokes in exchange for free smileys
Surveillance by secret agents
People standing behind you
*edit* I'm too spoiled by FF's extensions so until Chrome starts getting some of FF's extensions or the ones I use get ported, I'll stick to FF. This is a great start for a browser, just a matter of those lovely extensions coming over.
sounds interesting. for anyone using Chrome...does it top FF3?
It's pretty darn good and very fast and stable for a beta. There are some basics left out (bookmark manager, scrolling options, etc) that I expect to appear in later versions. It has a nice UI, and I like the dedicated process per tab feature (like IE8 Beta 2). I've never been this impressed with a new browser before. For me though, it has a long way to go to match Fx3's functionality. If it had a quicker mechanism for clearing private data, support for add-ons a la Fx, I could see it potentially being my primary browser.Originally Posted by DannyBoy413
