Polishing the Chrome

Posted in Computers and Software by Stacy McMahon on September 5, 2008

So I’ve been using Google Chrome for a couple days now, and it’s ok. InformationWeek sums up:

Many people are going to want to use Chrome as their primary browser. But others, I think, will want to wait, because Chrome has some rough edges, missing features, and stability problems. Chrome is an early beta, and it shows.

Clint had some problems with video playback, though he’s a power user’s power user and would find every little issue. My only real problems are slowness in switching between tabs, and that it doesn’t play well with the scrollwheel function on my trackpad (grab-and-scroll works fine) Do we need another browser? Not really, but it’s nice to have choices.

Some other thoughts…

    I never played a video with Chrome. My playback problems were with Firefox. Even with fresh installs. It changes day by day. IE would work fine 90% of days, but Firefox only 50% of days.
