The only thing that is keeping Chrome from an excellent rating is lack of tools. But I am sure that is going to be the best part of the future version.

Download Google Chrome
Searching is fast and easy with Google's web browser.

2 new cool tools:
1. Incognito - private no footprint web browsing,
2. Web developer tools to see source code.

I'm using it right now to post to this forum. No problems so far. But I miss my Google Spell checker. Hey wait, the spell checker is built in. Wow that is excellent.

I can't figure out why Google wouldn't just keep the Mozilla brand.

And why call it Chrome? -The dialog box is outlined with a chrome color to indicate it is active.

Using Chrome also. Looks kind of ho-hum, like most other Google apps.

Here is a link to a few short videos Google did on Chrome features.

I really enjoy the sharp and clean look the browser has when compared to IE and Firefox

That's crazy. In a Internet Nazi sort of way.

I've only seen a few problems with the Google Chrome that have bugged me such as:

When displaying forum avatar gif's it seems to almost lag and move alot slower then when viewed with Firefox or IE. 

The scrolling seems a bit off in the browser, hard to describe but it seems to move much faster then with Firefox, which has been bugging me when browsing. 

When listening to PANDORA, skipping songs causes the window to lag and delays the song from playing by 20-30 seconds.  Possibly flash compatability issues?

Personally, I like Google Chrome but it doesn't work with all my applications. So I use IE and Firefox. I need all three to test new content pages anyway.

Also I believe that Google Chrome is very fast. Much faster than IE and faster on some pages than Firefox.

The best thing about google chrome is the ability to drag tabs out of the browser and create new windows
