I see no reason to stop using Firefox. Is it better than Mozilla?

Doesn't it only work with Vista?

I use firefox, too.

No, works with XP, too.

I'm still getting into the ergonomics, but so far, the speed really impresses me.

I downloaded it inside ShadowDefender, just to try. It's the fastest browser I've ever seen. No problem with pages loading correctly. In fact I had no problems of any kind for a couple of hours. Then, I had a problem with some kind of memory spike. The hard drive light came on and stayed until I shut down Chrome. It is a beta, so I'd be surprised if something didn't happen.

It needs some improvement, but it is good and very fast with Java.

There is no way I'd put anything made by Google on my computer. Their EULA claimed that ANYTHING you created while using Chrome became Google's property..

I think they may have changed it...but still, no way I want a Google app on my computer.

That was a mistake and has been corrected by Google.

I downloaded it as soon as it was available and have been quite pleased with it so far. It is stable, fast and secure. Yes it uses more memory but that is because they separate every tab into a separate process to prevent one bad webpage from locking up all your tabs. Plus they sandbox every tab for higher security. The stability is excellent. Beta software from Google is better than third or fourth release for most companies. The thing I am impressed most with is its speed. Its funny how as soon as a company gets incredibly successful they become such a huge target. Same as Microsoft the last few years and AOL and Yahoo a decade ago.

Not to argue but I don't think Google makes "mistakes" like that. They tried to slip something past people and got caught.

This is a dangerous data dealing company.

You can see cabals and conspiracies anywhere if you want to see them I guess.

Im honestly curious why you say that. What has Google done to inspire such concern?

Justifiably so. The whole point of Chrome is to monitor EVERYTHING you do on your computer. Every word you type, everything! IE doesn't "report back" to Microsoft on what you are doing, but Chrome does.

Google is using Chrome as a method to get applications to your desktop that are "free". How are they free? Because Google will watch and record everything you do in order to feed you advertisements.

I tried the earlier beta. I understand they've made improvements since. I think I'll stay with Firefox and continue to use Dogpile as my search engine.

I use either Sandboxie or Shadow Defender when I do any surfing. One a sandbox, the other virtual. Sandboxie deletes everything when I close my browser. Shadow Defender does the same at each reboot. So, they can dump all the cookies, viruses, trojans, worms or any other garbage they want onto my computer. It's all trapped, and it all vanishes at the end of a browsing session or when I shut down or reboot.

Some of that stuff on that sight is overblown, but Google does monitor your every move. They even admit to that.

It is the most horrible search engine ever. Even live.com is better than that piece of poo.
