  1. Google has released version 11 of its browser. The update brings hundreds of bug fixes as well as many features that have been available on the Chrome beta and dev channels to users interested in using Chrome's latest builds (plus, a new logo!). Chrome 11 also addresses 25 security vulnerabilities in the WebKit-based browser (a record for the company): 16 rated as High, six rated as Medium, and three rate...

    "Apparently users like these frequent releases"
    Or the fact that it's just a slim, fast browser.

    That logo sure is ugly...
    But hey, Google Chrome is way OK. In fact, I think it's superb.

    With the silent auto-updates Chrome versions are almost meaningless as pointed out in the story (not a bad thing though). This morning I was surprised to see the switch to the new logo, so I was assuming a major update had taken place which was then confirmed by this post.

    Still waiting for NoScript on Chrome. Until then, I'm sticking with FireFox.

    I'd really like to use Chrome more, I have it running on my secondary computer, but there are so many external sites running scripts on each site, that at this point I prefer to have a bit more control and security over my primary computer.

    "Hundreds of bug fixes", that's comforting.

    At least they're just bug fixes and not security holes, lol.
     
  8. Not a big fan of the new logo. Looks like it was made in M$ Paint.

    Any way that the update will cut down on Chrome being a resource hog? Nah, that'll be asking for too much.

    I like Chrome, but I like Opera better because of their Opera Link feature. Besides I've been using Opera since the alpha days, so I guess I'm a little jaded.

    I really hate the new logo.
     
     
  12. chrome is so fast. but it takes up too much cpu.i wish that chrome repairs it
    and runs as stable as Avant brwoser.
     
  13. @gwailo247: It's been around for a while, if you actually wanted to switch you would have googled for an alternative and found it. Chrome's NoScript equivalent is NotScripts: https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/odjhifogjcknibkahlpidmdajjpkkcfn

    Btw, I'm a Firefox user, I just don't care for people bashing anything without reason.

    Seconded!

    I am however now a full time Chrome convert, and having had my recent issues with FF3 and 4, am happy with the browser I'm now using. :D
