Has anyone downloaded Google Chrome? I think it's faster than Firefox! Unfortunately, it doesn't have all the addons.
I'm using Google Chrome, and I too think it's much faster than Firefox, Opera, Safari and IE 7. I wish there was a portable version of Chrome.
Although, I haven't had any problems with add-ons.
I love the interface too, it is very neat and tidy. And it's easy to manipulate tabs (turn them into their own window, and make other windows combine with others). The whole planet should use Google Chrome!
Yes! They do need to produce a portable version. I was forbidden to download it for weeks by by dad, until I upgraded or memory to 2GB. I wanted so bad just to install it on my thumb drive.
Loving Chrome myself.
I saw it the day it came out, and downloaded it.
The App shortcuts are pretty sweet, especially because I use Gmail.
I only ever use Firefox for CSS at this point, because of the Web Developer add on. I think Google's likely going to have their own add-on system soon, after all Chrome is a beta. Though, I think I can safely doubt an Adblock Plus built in… Google makes their money from the ads.
Yes, I keep forgetting Chrome is still in beta. I just hope they add a master password feature to protect saved passwords.
The other thing I'd like to see is parental controls, because the incognito window makes it too easy for kids to look at p0rn without parental knowlege.
Let it be known I am 15.
The what window?
Incognito - Ctrl+Shift+N or Page Menu > New Incognito Page
It does viewing without storing anything to any history.
OK, I see. Safari's Private Browsing feature does the exact same thing, doesn't it?
I wish you could make some bookmarks automatically go into incognito when you click on them.
That way I could just click on the bookmark for my online banking, instead of opening incognito first.
And yes, Chrome needs a way to protect the passwords stored on it. The pain with the "master password" in Mozilla Firefox is that you need to type it to enter a website.
I wish there was a password you could set to simply view the passwords. Anybody can turn on my computer and view my passwords.
Well, at least with Firefox's master password, you only have to type it in once. That's better than typing it in 5 times.
My friend is making a C# web browser that blocks almost all of the useful
websites, and he named it after me, so that when the feds show up, and ask
who did it, I can take the blame. I don't think that was his intention, but I
might be in some hot water for a while after someone finds it.
making a C# browser is as easy as drag and drop - the code is literrally telling it to read and actiuvate, that's it.
Besides, if all it does is block things, the feds won't care.
Back on the topic of Chrome's Incognito mode. I just read today that a private browsing mode will be incorporated into the next version of Firefox.
Really? That's interesting. After reading that, I looked, but I couldn't find it.
I think there's a website, (I'm not gonna give the name.), that overrides the school firewalls, blacklists, ect. So even if the school has a site blocked, people can still get on it.
Google just removed the beta tag and changed it to a full level install (Over user level).
Tests I've done make it look faster, but I could be biased.
can it be stuck on a 32gb thumb drive?
BTW- sorry I haven't been on much lately. Things are getting really busy!
I have been having trouble using Yahoo! and Hotmail. For example, I can navigate to the inbox and all, but when I click on a message, nothing happens. Firefox gives me no such trouble. Is anyone else having these problems?
It's because Hotmail (and possibly Yahoo!) are using a new kind of text-box in their web-rendering. They allow for rich-text formatting. Google Chrome hasn't yet catered to the rich-text-boxes yet.
Reading on Google's forums, they are working on it. In the mean time, we all have to wait patiently.
