    Google Chrome

    I've been using FF on my main PC for a long time and then run Chrome on my laptop. Today I downloaded Chrome (canary build)
    Google Chrome - Get a fast new browser. For PC, Mac, and Linux
    and it's amazingly fast. Once I downloaded I went to about:labs and selected Instant. Also very cool. Just a heads up to give it a try.

    What version number is that? I've got 7.0.517.24 beta on one machine (no 'instant' option in labs) and 7.0.536.2 dev on another (instant option available)

    Re: Google Chrome

    I use Chrome sometimes...my wife uses it all the time. I just have a personal preference for FF. In fact, I am using FF 4.0 beta 6 and feel it is easily the best version of FF I have used.

    I like that there are portable versions for both Chrome and FF! Just run them off of a usb stick.

    Either way, I love that FF and Chrome are constantly being updated and the public is allowed to use them during the process. Which brings me to the browser that I detest...IE...anyone using the IE 9 beta yet?

    Re: Google Chrome

    Not sure I'd install that build if you plan on using it as your full time browser. It's updated more frequently than the dev channel which increases your chances of bugs.

    Re: Google Chrome

    Canary is a crazy build. Not really a daily use type build. It's more like if you are on dev channel and it has an issue you have something else to use or if you are on the release channel and want to play around.
