My god it's fast... This is really nice.

Couldn't install it at work, but no problem at home.  Now I'll wait for equivalents to noscript and adblock and customize google and I'm off!

You should try Safari.

I have Safari on the laptop (since Firefox 3 doesn't like Vista).  Chrome is more like Safari than anything else.

And why do you think Chrome is copying Safari?

The guts of Chrome and Safari are the same.

Because safari is great.

Therefore Chrome wants to be it.

To be honest, I'm leery of using Chrome just because I don't want Google collecting information about me from yet another repository.

You have the option to turn that off.  And Chrome is open source, so I'm sure we'll soon get a plugin that totally disables all of that stuff.

And what it does collect is pretty benign:

And I just want to mention again that it's fast as shit.  I'm still mostly Firefox, until all my favorite plugins show up, but I switch back and forth.  Switched to it now...and it's got to be twice as fast as Firefox.  Just beautiful.

But, god, get me adblock, and noscripts, and IE Tab so I can watch shit at Netflix.  That's all I need, people.
