    Re: Chrome....

    It also took me a while to get used to Chrome. First time I installed it, I hated it. I preferred Firefox, the browser I've been using for years.

    The main reason I decided to give Chrome another chance was because Firefox's flash plugin kept crashing quite often, requiring a restart of Firefox. This got pretty frustrating after a month. Loaded the same videos on Chrome and didn't have the same problem. And they made the switch easy by copying my setting and Favourites from Firefox. After a while, I got used to the UI and now Chrome is my primary Browser. I find it a lot faster and easier to search for things.

    Had nothing but problems with Chrome and Citrix. The latest receiver is listed as supported but it is causing us nothing but headaches at work.

    Personally, I don't hate it. I'm just not about to use it. Why? Because it's from data vampire Google. That, right there, is enough reason for me.

    I'll never use Chrome, the forced updates, the lack of auto-clear for the history, and the huge amount of data that it transmits back to Google completely outside of my control are all good reasons not to use the product.

    Re: Chrome....

    What don't you like about it...? The only thing that initially annoyed me was the inability to "Open" files (from som temp directory, I suppose) rather than actually download them, but I'm totally used to that now.

    That and the first thing I need to do every time I install Chrome is tick the box to show the Home button, I've no idea why that isn't default behaviour.

    May I suggest using Iron Browser, it is based off Chromium and doesn't transmit data back to Google while essentially being the same thing.

    For me chrome is awesome , but after using a friends pc, setup is key, personally I have mine set to open on new tab page with the 8 most visited sites on screen and also showing my bookmarks bar at all times.

    Re: Chrome....

    I have been a massive fan of Chrome for 4/5 years, but recently I decided to transfer to Firefox. Loving the minimal UI on Chrome, on work laptops with poor resolution and widescreen, you need all the screen space you can get.

    I used to use Iron, but switched to Chrome eventually, largely because of automatic updates being easier.

    I figure Google are going to amass stacks of data on everyone anyway, seems futile to resist!

    Re: Chrome....

    I can't really make up my mind.

    I like aspects of several browsers, I currently use Chrome the majority of the time, though I do still feel I should be using Firefox for some reason, it just feels like stepping backwards. And yes I even use IE9 I think its getting there, though on the same level as Firefox.

    There was a time were I used Opera only, though I was frustrated at times as some web pages did not load properly.

    I've considered using Iron, though never got around to it. To many options. For now I use Chrome, seems to just work.

    Re: Chrome....

    I would disagree, I really love Chrome as a browser because it just works and looks really slick.
