    "I'm Impressed!"

    September 25, 2010  |   By Sheamarie48

    Version: Google Chrome 6.0.472.59

    Pros

    Google Chrome is FAST! It seems to load pages faster than Opera. I love the download process. It downsload the item and I get to choose when I want to install it. It gives me the whole screen to see pages because it's not cluttered with toolbars.

    Cons

    It crashes. It took awhile to get it to download and install. However, once it did, I was very pleased. It doesn't always recognize iTunes is installed on my computer. I can't use it with MyPoints toolbar.

    Summary

    Bottom-line, I love it. While I haven't made it my default browser (yet), I find myself opting to use it more because of it's speed and simplicity. I'm glad I didn't give-up trying to get it to download. If you don't need all the bells and whistles that comes with Explorer I recommend downloading the Chrome Browser and giving it a fair test.

    "Fast, sleek browsing experience,,,but little support."

    September 16, 2010  |   By cdbob

    Version: Google Chrome 6.0.472.59

    Pros

    Fast when at its best. Lots of Extensions to choose from including Ad Blockers, safe surfing monitors (Web Of Trust) etc. Version 6 is ultimately more user-friendly than older builds -- after you climb the curve without any real help from the big G.

    Cons

    Customer Support? Think "Forum" -- where people running into the same brick wall can cry on each other's shoulders, but helpful posts are rare.. GMail oddly slows it down to a crawl at tmes. Get used to the message "still loading."

    Summary

    I like it enough to make it my default browser, even if IE really puts up a fight to knock it out of the box. Butt Chrome lets you fight back after the fact by letting you know it's no longer your default and gices you an easy way to yndo what IE hath wrought. The more tabs open, the more likely it is to crash. But a new Flash Control Extension does reduce those odds at the cost of a few extra keystrokes. It up[dates quickly and often, ever improving its performance -- but only when you're ready to update. Never taking you by surprise. Security holes are plugged almost as soon as they appear, The Chrome gnomes even apologize when they let you down ... and the browser can restore lost tabs after a crash.The fact that it can't provide full functionality with Windows Update or Hotmail is not Chrome's failing -- it's an MS plot designed to keep IE on your OS even if you think you don't need it. You still will.

    "One of the best choices if you want a Chrome browser."

    September 15, 2010  |   By andreaborman

    Version: Google Chrome 6.0.472.59

    Pros

    It is very fast and reliable. There are now many Chrome browser to choose from but Google Chrome and Chromium(its open source version) are the ORIGINAL chrome browsers.

    Cons

    It is not updated as regular as Chromium browser is but still works good. And although Chromium browser has its own updater tool, CNU which also installs Chromium for the first time on your computer. There's no updater tool for Google Chrome.

    Summary

    Google Chrome is an excellent browser. There are many Chrome browsers that have copied Google chrome and Chromium its open source. But in my experience they do not work as well as Google Chrome or Chromium. Google Chrome is faster than all the Firefox browsers and will do all of the modern day web tasks. It has simple features but that is one of the things that makes it work better. The only disadvantage is it is not updated regular as Chromium browser its open source version.But there are many different ways to customize this browser with add ons and themes. I have the Google mail checker add on which is very handy for checking my G.mail as it lets me know of any new messages I have and takes me directly to my email box. Also it has attractive themes to change the color of this browser. All these add ons work in Chromium too. Chromium has an updater tool which will install Chromium browser for first time installation on your computer if you do not have it already and will update your existing chromium browser. But there is no such tool made for Google Chrome. You have to download it from the web and then when you want to update it,search the web and download it again. If Chromium browser,which is Google Chromes open source has its own updater tool,Chromium Nightly Updater CNU for short. Which will also install Chromium on any computer that does not have it,why is there no tool like this made for Google Chrome? A tool like this for Google Chrome would save a lot of time downloading it from the web. As well a giving people the latest updated version.
