Google Chrome First Experience

2 comments - Post a comment

Google has released Chrome, small interface, light-weight web browser. Interface is so tiny it even has dynamic status bar. On start, browser will display most visited sites in preview panes, something like Opera's Speed Dial, but based on your visits. First impressions after a couple of minutes of using Chrome are OK. Here is few things you can do with Google Chrome:

google chrome web browser logo1. Open Multiple Sites on Startup: This option can be set via Options / Basics tab and can be good way for one click (actually double-click quick start) if your web working routine is set.

2. Check the stats for nerds: If you want in-depth view into browser memory usage go to Contol / Developer / Task Manager and click on Stats for Nerds link or Shift+Esc for Task Manager and then link.

3. Go incognito: With Ctrl+Shift+N you can open new incognito window. The explanation follows "Pages you view in this window won't appear in your browser history or search history, and they won't leave other traces, like cookies, on your computer after you close the incognito window. Any files you download or bookmarks you create will be preserved, however."

What is your Chrome experience (positive or negative) ?

It sucked!

I tried to go to my regular websites and it was taking forever, I thought it was my connection.

Opened up firefox and it worked perfectly.

They still have some kinks to work out, IMO.

Angelika, you probably don't remember but when you first used Firefox pages also loaded slow, this is because they are not cached! Don't give up on Chrome, some have reported it is the fastest browser yet!
