Like every other technology fan on the internet, I've been trying out Google's new Chrome browser over the past few days. As you would expect, it's pretty good, and I understand why Google would want users to access their online products through their own browser as opposed to one created by another company.
However, one thing I'm not so sure about is the tab placement. I got used to it pretty quickly, but I imagine it could become frustrating if someone wanted to install one or two toolbars, adding extra lines of separation between the browsing area and the tabs.
It may or may not be the fastest browser out there, but it's definitely close. Some people are also focusing on other metrics that are important to them, like CPU load, where Internet Explorer 8 comes out ahead. Nevertheless, Google Chrome is still an amazing browser. I could spend much more time covering all the positives, but I'd like to keep this post short. Bottom line: try it out.
