Or Get Vista if you have the hardware! IMO, Vista is much better than XP.

Got Chromed. Mixed feelings. I liked the UI and it takes no time to get used to. Its fast but as of now it lacks some of the very useful plug-ins which I used to use in IE7. The most wanted are:

1) Flash blocker
2) Ad blocker
3) Some features which are in IE7 Pro (Plug-in)

Chrome plug-in wish lists here:
Google Chrome - Google Chrome Plugins

Just started using Chrome after seeing a post here. Must say, I am impressed by its sleekness and lightweight feel. It feels pretty fast as well.

Me too using this for 2nd day today. The main problem I see is that some of the sites are not able to be used since they expect IE. Apart from that, I see it is really cool.

chrome seems to be faster than IE or Firefox. Liked the overall layout too.
And boy, Google developers have some sense of humor.. checkout the pic.

Chrome is reported to be around 30% faster than either FireFox 3 or IE 7.

However, Mozilla has published its own testing reports claiming that the new version of firefox will be 30% faster than the Chrome. But that version is yet to come.

Chrome need to be more polished as I found that both IE7 and Firefox are quite polished ( I use Opera, IE7, Firefox 3 and Safari ).

Am using Opera now v9.52 build 10108. This one seems as similar to Chrome and it is also fast!

I guess these two guys are the ones who are going to beat it out for the top spot! :-)

Hi,

> Anybody know of any wishlist page/bug-report page that Google's got up for > Chrome?

I don't know about the wishlist, though something was mentioned in some other message.

You may have found out by now. The fist icon to the right of the address bar has a link to report bugs.
