Since our laptop doctor suggested trying it I have now for well over a month. It is faster than my favorite Opera but doesn't work using the text feature on some apps. A banner will pop up and say it is still in the experimentation process.

The best thing I failed to mention earlier is if you transfer a lot of pictures like we do. By far it is faster than any brouser that we are aware of. We are constantly selling used radios and listing the trade-ins and the picture transfer time takes the longest. Also love the speed dial blocks that imitates Opera's.

Well, I checked it out when it first came available and it seemed ok. I've been using Firefox for a good while, tho....and would take a bit to get me to switch. Firefox does leak memory, tho'...and haven't checked out Google enough to see if it has that same problem.

Personally I like firefox better :mrgreen:

But that's just my opinion, it's a good browser though.

Yea, I'm still partial to Firefox as well. I have Chrome and it's pretty good too. But I haven't really switched to it as my default browser...so needless to say I've stuck with Firefox thus far. I don't care much for the bookmark stuff on Chrome, but I really haven't spent much time trying to configure it much either (yet). So I might be a bit premature in feeling that way about it. I'll dink around with it some more and see if I can import some of the bookmarks like you can do with Firefox.
