    What are your opinions on Google Chrome? Is it as bad as what I have been reading? Anybody use Chrome?

    I've tried it. It seems pretty decent, although I still prefer Firefox for its many extensions. It would be second choice of browser.

    I love it. At first, coming from IE8, I didn't really like the layout but it grew on me and it's now my first browser. It's kind of unstable on W7 for now though. (gotta run it as administrator and Vista compatibility mode)

    I am currently using it as my default. I switched from Opera. I like the open/close speed, and the browsing speed (but that's more of a wash against O). Tab open/close speed is also good. I enjoy its simple interface, bookmark management features, and new tab page for best features.

    Worst features? Customizability limitations is probably it. It runs light and quick and its appearance doesn't get in the way. That's why I've been using it as my default for a couple months.

    When I first moved to Chrome from Firefox, I fell in love with it. After about a month it just started bugging out on me and went really slow. Since then, I haven't used it. I'd definitely rank it after Firefox... Love'd it when it worked for me.

    I do have it as my default browser...only thing is that it has become a little buggy, everytime I am looking at some manga over onemanga.com, Chrome just freezes..its been like this for the past few weeks.

    I use it for Gmail, since it loads that very fast. For everything else, I use Opera.

    I use the developer updates of Chrome, and it is my favorite browser along with Firefox. Within the next couple of weeks, Chrome will get add ons!

    Chrome is fast and efficient on windows xp and vista. The good thing about Chrome is that when one tab hangs, you don't have to close the entire browser, just that defective tab. It's memory efficient as well. The downside is the customizability and addons limitations, but that will change I hope.
