Chrome's beta beats all other Windows browsers at the Acid3 test. Only Safari running on a Mac can beat it. Check it for yourself at http/acid3.acidtests.org/ . Hey Tom's, how 'bout a browser comparison and benchmarking?
[citation][nom]anonymoussious[/nom]Stable version for Vista 64 bit would be a good start. Chrome makes it crash every once in a while.[/citation]
I use a pirated version of Vista Ultimate X64,and I haven't had a SINGLE issue with crashing.
On XP machines,I've seemed to have far further issues.
Let's not forget that it is still in Beta version. While bugs and crashes are unpleasant, they are to be expected. I still only use IE for those pesky applications and addons that "requires" it and I don't like to bother with multiple softwares that do the same job. However, since Windows Update is now stand-alone in Vista, I will surely give Chrome a shot anytime soon.
Not to steal the limelight from Chrome here, but people should really try Opera 10 if you're at all interested in getting a new browser. It's wicked fast, has tons of "add-ons" like FF, and seems to do a better job rendering pages than previous versions.
its 30% faster than previous opera versions, which were already almost as fast as the fastest.
Actually the linux thing is a rather sore mark for Chrome considering it falls under an open source initiative. Jokes aside but by not supporting the community which allowed Google to exist in the first place (they ran their servers on red hat 4 when they started) it really raises some questions.
I'm sure as this is beta it will be corrected in the near future.
I tried chrome, it launches fast, I like the simple interface. I'd love to have it as a web browser on a cell phone.
I like FF, Opera and even IE (yes, that's right folks) better than the current version of Chrome for windows.
