Google Chrome Browser

14 posts in this topic

Anyone download the new Google Browser? I've been a die hard Firefox user for quite some time, but this Google browser is pretty nice so far. It loads pages super fast. The tabbed browsing is what I liked about Firefox and Google took it a step further by allowing the user to pull the tab off the browser to create a new session/window. If you finish with the second session, just grab the tab and place it back onto the original tab bar of the first session. Very neat. So far I like it but I've only been using it for about five minutes now. grin

I am also a die hard Firefox user. Installed Chrome today. So far, ok. It doesn't seem as user friendly as FF, but I will give it a try.

Also remember, Google has an agreement with Firefox until 2011. So I can foresee changes with Firefox to integrate with Chrome in the next few years.

PS... MSFT stock tumbled today. Investors worried?

Dropped 19 cents which isn't quite a "tumble", and the rest of the market slumped later in the day too after a hot start to the beginning of the day.

I've been using the new browser this evening and it seems OK. I had to download a beta version of Java so that the radar loop would function on the National Weather Service HSOforum. Other than that it's good so far. The pages load super fast which is nice. A couple other bells and whistles help too.

Yes, JAVA is awesome with it. Pages do load super fast.

I hear ya!

I noticed that after loading Java and trying the radar loop it loads the animation a bit slower than FFox did. Not a deal breaker but definitely noticeable.

I'm liking it so far, this is the first browser other than IE that I have ever used........did you notice the spellcheck that comes with it in these response boxes? Just right click on the red underlined words and it gives you suggestions for the misspelled words.

Firefox has the same spell check. You can definitely tell when I post from home and when I post from work!! grin

I tried it for a while, but switched back to FF3.

I didn't like the way it displayed my hsolist pages. I really like the new FF3.

New and better usually means worse and slower.

Not a FF fan either I'll stick with Avant Browser fast and less problems then FF, IE or G!

I like Chrome, but no middle click scrolly thing? Come onnnnnnnnnnn

Also I noticed a few bugs on pages like Facebook that turned me away because I couldn't look at photos. I'll probably stick with Firefox and give this another try in a couple months. I have pretty high hopes for Google, but kind of wish they would've worked with Mozilla instead of against them. frown

    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
    • What a fun election cycle, first Trump dismantles the Republican party and may take them to even lower lows by winning. Then even more surprising is the Democrats totally imploding all on their own and losing to Trump in the process. No hollywood script can compete with this kind of crazyness, just happy to be alive to witness all of this mess and hope there is much much more to come. Something tells me I won't be disappointed, I am almost excited for the next one, 4 years ago I never would have thought that in my wildest dreams.
    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
