Google Chrome Goes Live!
« on: September 02, 2008, 02:37:32 PM »
Yeah, it's true folks! Google's web browser went live a few minutes ago and is available here: http://www.google.com/chrome



Check the link above for more info on this new browser, or read it for yourself at: http://www.google.com/googlebooks/chrome/

I got it as soon as I could, ;D

Mainly because the idea of when one tab crashes the whole browser doesn't.
The only thing I don't like is the tabs at the top as ObjectDock docks get in the way.
But by the time it has got its ground and there are hundreds of plugins available, it will be much better. Also I love the way the downloads are handled.

I just wish they would release Adblock and all those other plugins I LOVE for Firefox! Foxy Tunes? FB Toolbar?! *sigh*

BUT I'm loving it regardless! And yeah, I love their version of tabbed browsing :)

I think that's because it confuses the domain name (sc4devotion.com) with that page's name... that's my theory / hypothesis (rather) at least. :P

I know that Chrome works with the domain rather than the specific page.

Shame on you, Joe! Since yesterday, I'm the proud owner of a shiny 22" widescreen TFT panel, and now you post an almost equally wide pic, causing a horizontal scrollbar in your posting!  :P

I hate those with a fiery passion. :P

I'm posting this on Chrome, and it seems to be good so far.

So many things have been taken from Firefox and Safari... in the case of FF, the bookmarks system, Safari: the rendering engine.

So speedy too.

well it looks like the forum doesnt stretch any more... instead just that post has a scrollbar on it :)

and chrome is great, BUT my friend uncovered (on the interwebs) a thing about the eula, that meant that anything you submitted through chrome was then googles:

but they have since revoked this clause, thank god :)

Well, I read an article about Google Chrome in my newspaper, and it says that it ought to be crashfree, but it isn't. Good thing: it's fast!

An irritating thing is: NO RSS READER!

That should've been included in the beta... after all they could've just pinched the RSS reading software from Firefox... they did pinch the bookmarking system, after all.

I tried it yesterday and had an odd thing happen- frequently when I post a comment I'll have the "post comment" window open in a tab and then use one or more other tabs to go off and find linkies and pics and quotes and stuff.  This has become second nature in Firefox.

When I did that in Chrome, I found that navigating elsewhere on the same site on another tab caused the "post comment" window to close, and there was no way I could get back to it (using the "back" and "forward" buttons) on the original tab.  I was irritated, because I'd lost a long comment I had typed, so haven't gone back to try to replicate what happened.  So, this is just a warning.

It does seem fast, and I really like the clean look.  IE has more buttons, controls, gizmos and just plain old shite than a frickin' F-22 cockpit, and none of it is particularly intuitive.  Firefox is better, but Chrome's minimalist approach is really in the right direction.

David: that's a weird bug, I tried to duplicate it just then

tab one has a reply window in it, tab two has been opened from a link in tab one, still in sc4d and I navigated around in tab 2 but it didnt do anything with tab one...
