I’m currently running Google Chrome right now, and I really like it.
Google Chrome looks great, is extremely fast and doesn’t continue to take up CPU usage when not in use *caugh* Firefox *caugh*. Another great thing about Google Chrome is that it has an awesome bar. Almost the same one Firefox has, it’s great! When I started Google Chrome the first time it asked to import all my browsing history, cookies, Search engines and my bookmarks. One Google Chrome had all that info from my other browser, even if the bookmark feature does need some work, the awesome bar is great!
What I like:
Chrome has a very sleek look to it, the tabs are on the top of the window, by the minimize, maxinize and close buttons are.
The Start Page.
Chrome privides this great start page that shows your most visited pages, recently bookmarked pages and recently closed tabs. The start pages also appears on every new tab, which is great.
Since I let Chrome import my history from IE and Firefox it knew exactally where I’d been. Now that’s nothing new for your normal History feature, but it added a couple other things. You can see exactly what time you visited a certain page. Chrome even tracked my views on the Roblox browser, which does browse the internet, but through a special browser so I can play Roblox games. And if you want to do a search for a bookmark, you get a little preview of the page you might click on before you click on it.
The Aweosme bar.
Like in Firefox the aweosme bar shows relative URL’s to the words I’m typing, or if a page I’ve visited has a post thatr matches the text I’m typing, that will come up too. Another feature Chrome has, like Firefox, the little star you can click on to bookmark a page. Like in Firefox all I have to do is click the little star, and choose the folder I want it bookmarked in.
Chrome’s spell checker.
I’ve been having problems with my spell checker in Firefox while writing on my website, but it works fine in Chrome. Another great thing about Chrome.
Chromes tabs load as a new process.
A great feature about Chrome is that every tab you have and load new loads a new process, so that if you need to close one, and it freezes, all you have to do is go open Task Manager and find the rouge process, then end it without ending all of Chromes processes.
What I don’t like:
The way Chrome handles Bookmarks.
Chrome has no bookmarks manager, even the skimpy unusable bookmarks manager would have been preferable to none.
