After about 20 minutes of research, I’ve decided to give Google Chrome a try.
What sold me was the way it handles java script. If all goes as promised you won’t get the big lag when you launch java heavy applications such as Google Reader or WordPress.
So far it’s been a dream. I’m sure there will be some bugs along the way. If you’re using Internet Explorer you’ll think your computer has super powers. If you’re using Firefox, then you’ll probibly only notice on Java haeavy pages and when you’re browsing many-many tabs.
FYI: My Google Reader runs many hundreds of feeds and didn’t stall the browser at all. With Firefox I normally get a 3 second stall when loading.
The Story Behind Google Chrome
This is actually a big breakthrough in browser technology which will allow web based programs to finally come into their own and replace (yes replace) all the basic office software you’ve been running on your PC.
