    google chrome browser

    Has anyone tried the new Google Chrome Browser?

    I just installed it, and couldn't believe how fast it was.

    If you are interested click on the google chrome ad when it appears on Swellinfo. Or of course you could just find it directly, but Swellinfo will make some cash if you go the later route

    PS.

    everyone that uses Swellinfo should download the browser. Its Unbelievable how much faster Google Chrome renders the Swellinfo pages.

    Google Chrome is good. I use it as a backup for FF. Its so simple, that everything loads extremely fast, and its a little more compitible than FF3.0 (Based on acid3tests). But its too simple for me. I prefer the customizable features of FF over it.

    Acid3tests runs the latest scripts available for web browsers. Most of which not ANY website will use, but Chrome runs 79% of them... Out of all my browsers, that placed first, with Safari 75% and FF3 around 73%. Supposedly the next Opera is supposed to hit 85+. FF is doggin' it. My current Opera is at 63 and FF at 61. (Some of my browsers are out of date)

    If you really want to optimize performance, drop Windows and pick up Ubuntu. Open Source OS that doesn't run all the negligable stuff that Windows does.

    Just be prepared to ignore most anything flash (several areas of this site) for net use. It's sluggish and extremely buggy on linux. Often times after loading a page with flash on it, then clicking a button, my entire browser just disappears.

    more than marginally faster for me. There is a lot of javascript on swellinfo, so it should be faster with chrome. No problems here with flash.
