got some really bad press in some of the CIO sites....FF# is better, but still has issues on occasion with video streaming, and Adobe Pro 8 doesn't play nicely with FF# either (although I suspect that may be a typical Adobe issue).

HTH, P

Downloaded and installed.

Seems pretty fast but I'm still using FF3 and IE7.

Been using it for a while now. Occasionally hangs when too many tabs (especially YouTube etc) are open. But other than tat pretty decent. Download the Java 6 Update 10 and couple more important plugins like Adobe etc and you're set. I find it lighter than FF, just too bad doesn't have a plugin like Down Them All in FF.

I like using Chrome together with iGoogle as my Homepage.

It just doesn't work with online banking login pages. I tried UOB and DBS but they don't load properly.

I am settling for FF for now but will change to Chrome once they fixed the bugs.

Acts a hell of a lot like FF with a different skin. Try doing some css coding and present in IE, FF, Chrome. FF & Chrome are identical... I bet large chunks of Chrome is FF code.

Why change exactly??

FF and Chrome run on two very different engines. If anything, I'd say there's more similarity between Chrome and Safari than Chrome and FF.

Using Chrome at the moment simply because it's faster and the minimalist design (aesthetics and otherwise) is rather appealing. Might switch back to FF when 3.1 is official.

As for iBanking, try updating Java.
