  5. Thanks for the update, downloading atm to give it a try, but I doubt it will ever replace FireFox.
  6. Haven't used Firefox in months since switching to Chrome.

    If there only was a "report spam" button...

    But yeah, Google Chrome/Chromium is brilliant. I use Firefox only when downloading videos from YouTube. If anybody's interested in knowing why there's no Youtube downloader extensions for Chrome (anymore) you can check out my question & the answer(s) in the support forum: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Chrome/thread?tid=736fd0e92472f09b&hl=en

    Shame, but I just use Firefox for that.

    If you install Real Player Basic, it adds the download flash video (youtube supported) to google chrome (as well as to Firefox, IE, etc).

    I hope they reach version 9 on the beta channel soon. That's the version where they promised hardware acceleration.

    Chrome version numbering is a joke.

    It's impressive to me that a company that had gmail on beta for more than 5 years bumps their browser version every 2 months.
