    I tried Chrome a long time ago and wasn't that impressed, but decided this morning it was time to try it again. It is sweet! Anyone got any plugin advice?

    Agreed. Very fast. One thing I see wrong is not being able to switch rendering engines. I use sites that don't let chrome render. With firefox I can switch engines to display them in firefox browser. If this was possible I think I would jump on board!

    Chrome needs a few more essential addons before I start using it full time. Right now I only use it to test if other browsers are "broken".

    Also try: SRWare Iron - The Browser of the Future
    It's Chrome without the google.

    Yup...used it when it was first released and was not impressed. I need my Google FireFox Toolbar..can't go without it.

    Google Chrome...no toolbar.

    However, I just upgraded my desktop with a new PSU (the old one blew) and 2 sticks of RAM and added another Monitor. Decided to give Chrome another shot to keep a few sites up and running all the time. I still find myself using FF for my main browsing but have Chrome in the background.

    Love Chrome; I also keep one of my screens open using Chrome.

    Extensions are starting to hit much faster and should continue to snowball...check 'em out here.

    I'm in the same camp of having tried it when it was first released but wasn't all that impressed. Like Alex, maybe I should give it a shot again.

    I have used it all the way through. Google continues to upgrade it and I am very happy with the speed.

    IE9 was giving me problems so I downloade Chrome and love it so far! Very fast browser and does just what I need. The way it keeps my browsing history is really cool and different from the IE way of things :thumbup:

    I always use chrome until i land on one of your website that isn't coded for it and then I jump to firefox. I find certain automotive web companies don't do a good job of making sure your sites work in all the browsers.

    When you build a site you should check it in the 3 latest versions of IE, latest 2 versions of firefox, chrome, and safari.
