Here is a "Comic Book" that "the Google People" posted that explains Chrome.
It is really a manual with pictures but they call it a comic book. :D

I don't know if it helps or not :)

So, right now my opinion is that it's an excellent browser -- but not necessarily better than Firefox. I'll keep it installed, though.

There are obviously bugs. Since I don't get up or down scrolling. Before opening and closing tabs caused a delay in my browser giving it a very sluggish feel even though the sites themselves loaded much faster. now the delay is no longer occurring it is super fast Still no up or down scrolling for me though.

I expect an update or patch within the next week for any and all little bugs like these they find now. I am allowing Google to see my stats to help with the project lol. I usually don't send info back like that.

Hmm, well it works for bella, the scrolling, so i am going to re-install it, because if i can't scroll up :thumbsdown:



EDIT

I just got it, I guess it's a little bit faster, but not explosively instant.

I can scroll up too :D

Sorry guys. I have to go back to firefox. I can't stand here and say this beta build is worth the trouble. I'll come back to it once an update or later build releases I don't expect that to be too long. So far though I have heard different problems from some of my friends. I hope it updates some fixes soon because here's my current problems.

-Youtube works ****?
-When I click to open and close new tabs the program it's self slows down for about a good second then keeps going.
-No scrolling in either direction.
-Less security option in our options menu.
-I can't open a whole folder of tabs at once, I have to click each bookmark separately.
-No spell check. One of the best features of firefox. Funny thing is it underlines incorrect words in here right now as I type, maybe that's just the forums though. If not it should be easier to use because I can not figure it out.


I'll be coming back to chrome. Hopefully sooner rather than later. I just can't give up my speedy application of firefox for faster loading times and lose so many other things which have become basic to me. So here's to the next update!

I am with you henry, once it updates and gets the basics (scrolling) down, i will switch, i found it much faster, and the slick look has grown on me.

Yep, it's just an early Beta to give you a flavor of the browser. A very promising start.

I've been playing with the developer builds of the next firefox 3.1 and that too is VERY fast due to it's new Javascript engine.

Looks like another round of Browser wars which will be great for us, the users.

For some reason, it won't work when clicking links on Facebook (i.e. the Inbox).

I'm back to my beloved FF for now.

I'll give this a try.

On another note, I think I might be the only one here who uses Opera.

I'm loving Chrome. It's on my lappy but I think I might be moving away from Firefox on my main (works) PC and installing it there too.

It's so fast! :thumbup:

It certainly is fast :)

The only thing stopping me using it fulltime is that there are some extensions with Firefox that I really need to run the site with.. But it's now my main browser for general surfing.
