    Makes no difference how fast they make it when it doesnt have the Addons that Firefox does.

    Sure they have a bookmark sync built in but where is the proper (non kludged) Adblock and Flashblock and how have they engaged with Devs to get smaller Addons ported?

    Still the same ole Chrome really. They've done the Windows 7 taskbar integration though.

    Re: News - Google Chrome 3 released, promises to be faster than ever

    I've had the beta for a while and the biggest thing missing, is still a "print preview" ability! or come to that, printing that actually works correctly for the majority of WEB pages.... Though I will still continue to use it, if only because I don't like IE!
    Live long and prosper.

    Mikeo, if you are just using it to avoid IE, then I would seriously suggest Opera.

    Doesn't have the extensions like FF, but is an excellent browser.

    Funkstar

    Thanks for that.

    My comment was a little "tongue in cheek".

    Quite happy with chrome (other than "print preview"). Just that I don't like IE. Never had Chrome lock up or stop responding. Which is more than I can say for IE. And it's pretty nippy.
    Live long and prosper.

    Fair enough. may still be worth looking at Opera. I think the print functions work pretty well

    The Dev branch is already at 4.0.206.1 and it does suport User.js files aswell as addons/extensions in the form of CRX files.

    I've not bothered with the extensions that much NoSpeedDial + AdSweep + AdBlock+ - all JS files, seems to work well for me.

    Google Chrome now also support Windows 7 better, as it now takes advantage of Windows 7 Taskbar jump lists.
    This give you the ability to open a recently closed tab or window, and the most viewed site straight from the taskbar.

    Never used Chrome before, installed Chromium today (v4.0.212.0), and I have to say it does seem zippier than my favorite browser Firefox and it renders all the sites I use regularly with no issues.

    I didn't think I would ever leave FF but I could well become a convert to Chromium now, despite the fact it does not have FF's range of addons/plugins but I can live with that.

    Re: News - Google Chrome 3 released, promises to be faster than ever

    i've been using Google Chrome for a few days now just because of the "email client" in Opera popping up instead of Windows Live Mail everytime i pressed the email key on my keyboard.
    i must say, i'm incredibly impressed and will definitely be sticking with it as my main browser.

    Still no meaningful extension support = still not interested.
