Google Chrome web browser for Mac

Post by bluesky » Fri May 13, 2011 9:57 am

Downloaded and started playing around with Google Chrome for Mac today on my iMac. Wow is this browser fast! I mean REALLY fast!
I havent' found any page it can't load extremely quickly yet.

It also supports WebGL, which allows you to run WebGL applications right within the browser window itself. So far I am impressed. The user interface is clean and intuitive.

And also has built-in phishing and malware protection.

Anyone else trying this web browser?
Comments?

Here's where you get it...

One caveat. It will automatically import your Bookmarks from your default browser.
DON'T tell it to import your bookmarks again, or you will have tons of duplicates like I did.
oops. cleaning them out now. :o

There's been some heated discussion on Macintouch about Chrome and Google Earth automatically installing an auto updater. There are apparently ways around this, but it's not super simple. For some reason, I have Google Earth 6 and have never been plagued by the updater.
