    this would be a very usefool tool. i like chrome and i think it is really reliable. i believe this wont be really give so much of a difference since it aint really that slow in the first place. i would matter to those with a lot slower connections(lets see in Feb). chrome is great but it still doesnt support some sites. im sticking to firefox still.
     
  2. If a browser gets 100/100 from Acid3 test then it's pretty damn sure it does 'support' some sites.

    There's still a bug(s) that makes some sites, e.g. youtube and sourceforge sometimes render incorrectly - the fix is to either clear your cache or force reload the page with ctrl+f5.

    But it's not really about supporting sites. That's just ignorance.

    FasterFox is not compatible with 3.6 version.
     
  5. big deal, there has been a firefox add-on that can do this for years.
     
  6. I and many others see problems with Chrome randomly refusing to load some pages. Repeated refreshes in Chome don't load the page. But if I paste the same URL in IE it's loaded immediately, and then a refresh in Chome will also load the page.

    So, who cares about pre-loading, when Chrome has problems with ordinary loading.
     
  7. Can someone please explain? Why is it when I look at my history in Chrome it shows a record for every single bookmark I have recorded {100's!}. Does Chrome already "pre-fetch" & load all my bookmarks at start up? Its a nightmare as my CPU usage runs at 100% for ages & slows things down for quite sometime. FYI - I have unticked the "Use DNS..." option but is there anything else I could do?
