    of course its quick.

    they took an existing bunch of code (webkit) and put a gui atop it.
    throw new ArgumentException (String, String, Exception)

    Be fair, the process segmentation thing is neat and in theory a good defense against crashes

    Of course, thats not taking away from Chrome being a good browser or otherwise, it's just a simple fact that they haven't developed their own rendering engine, so they don't need to debug that part of it. Hence the fast development.

    is anyone actually still using it as primary browser or have we all gone back to what we were using before?

    I'm waiting for a Linux port which is actually usable. Some people, especially google, are dreadful for taking cross-platform code & breaking it to be locked down to one arch/os

    I quite like it, but not the way it exposes my viewing habits everytime anyone opens it!
    I only use it as my "other" browser tbh, and I really hate the way it doesn't prompt you when you press close and a download hasn't finished so I have to redownload whatever was pending!

    Adobe are incapable of making properly coded and tested software anymore.
