    Yeah, I wasn't impressed with Chrome either but this one looks like a winner in speed.

    Re: Fastest browser yet?

    I like the competition going on in the browser market right now. In my opinion the two best out there are (in no particular order):

    Mozilla (Firefox, etc..)
    WebKit (Safari, parts of Chrome, other minor browsers)

    Both browser engines are extremely fast. I haven't used the Firefox 3.1 beta yet, but the last development version WebKit I had (from October 15th) was faster than Chrome in Javascript performance.

    Things could get interesting if Opera and Microsoft decide to join the party...

    The more browsers out there, the more difficult it is to design websites. Each browser behaves differently, and consistency in design is difficult to maintain.

    Re: Fastest browser yet?

    If/when Chrome has extensions similar to Firefox I'd make the switch, although this new offering may change that.

    You're right, it's sub-par right now but it is quite fast and their is room for improvement. I use dual-headed monitors and the Chrome tear away tabs are tough to get along without once you've tried them.
