    I like Google Chrome a lot, but problem is it doesn't work with everything. Selling items on eBay is a pain with chrome, plug ins don't always work.

    I think there are too many browsers already and people and developers can't be bothered with anyone when the rest all generally work well...

    Google Chrome is awesome (especially the dev releases), but while it works with most websites there are still a few places where you have to fall back to FF or IE. However, it is soooo much faster and easier to use than the other 2 and I for one look forward to widepread support from web devlopers and a "proper" release.

    Re: News - Google ramps up Chrome marketing

    I was forced into installing it when I downloaded Google Earth (Google are almost on the list along with Apple and Adobe for this).

    Tried it on Google Maps and I have to admit it is fast, and as much as I hate to admit it, does a far better job of Maps than Opera (you can't drag and drop your route with Opera).

    Not going to stop using Opera though.
