Google Chrome

Postby Trumpetmaster » Fri May 29, 2009 9:44 am

I tried to download and upgrade to IE8 as my IE7 has been causing numerous problems
This effort was not successful. Maybe because I am in the office.

I did download Google Chrome successfully and I must tell you that
navigating through the B.com BBB is very fast!

If this proves faster than IE... I may do the same on my home computer
that constantly has issues....

Has anyone else tried Google Chrome?
If yes.. please let me know what you think!

What the heck is Google Chrome? I see it on my search page but I have not downloaded it. Is it a replacement to IE? I use IE a lot.

Jamie,
I am testing it as a replacement to IE.
I still have IE on my desktop but not using it right now.
The results are pretty amazing for speed.. At least on my end over here...

I've been using Chrome for several months now and it is indeed faster than IE7. It also has some spiffy features, such as icons for your most visited sites--my number one is Google, two is Wikipedia, Beethoven.com is number seven. It's swell.

On some sites their may be problems with Chrome. I run a leased servlet thats optimized for IE7 and won't function correctly on Chrome. Has anyone experience with IE8? I saw it download with some updates, but didn't install it.

I've been using Chrome since end of last year and LOVE IT!!!! It is so fast and there are now less issues with spy ware too. IE often lets spyware get in and you are more open to exposing your computer to bad cookies etc. Chrome (I have found) prevents most of it and with the cool features and high speeds... I LOVE IT! (Now if I can just IT here at work to upgrade all the computers with it and dump IE I would be much happier... Hint Hint IT Department)
