    So I hear a lot of people going on about how good it is.


    Can somebody explain to me what the advantages are?

    im using it now and for me it seems to be the fastest browser ive ever used. better then internet explorer, firefox, safari etc.. and u can choose diffrent artistic backgrounds so ur tabs n shizz r coloured lol.. just download it and give it a try. wont take long. :D

    I find it much quicker for flash applications and also video buffering, but i think Firefox is faster for browsing, also prefer FFs plugins and extensions.

    Main disadvantage for chrome is whats been mentioned before, its shit with dnbforum.

    everything thats been said about chrome. i confirm.

    plus, i like the way it makes better use of screen space. more focus on the page your viewing.

    tis alot faster. even just loading up. click click. web access.

    why don't you just download it and see.

    i installed it a few months ago and it's still got a few weak spots, like it won't deal with certain sites cookies or flash browser, it seems ok but their still on version 1 i think, better than IE, not as good as firefox or opera

    i had to set this up for my mum the other days cos she was still using IE and her computer was dying a very slow death cos of IE and all its super-shardness!

    So set her up with Chrome, she loves it, its super fast and super simple, gets rid off all the shitty tools u never need along the top, and just sticks it with the tabs, i like it, but i am so set in firefox with all my various add ons, i dont think ill be changing unless one gets loads better/worse
