    Google Chrome

    Do any Cyclone Fanatics use Google Chrome as their default internet browser? I currently use Mozilla Firefox (with the ISU theme) and like it quite a bit, but am curious to see if people prefer the new 'chrome' by Google, or some other browser.

    Re: Google Chrome

    I have used it from time to time...it has some cool features, but nothing I have found that makes me want to use it more than FF...other than it seems to run gmail and youtube faster. Conspiracy?

    Agreed. I use it on my laptop and it runs ok but I have a lot of add-ons for firefox that I like.

    Re: Google Chrome

    I tried it but there are features of Firefox that I like better at this point. I may try to use it more and explore some of the feature of Chrome but for now I use Firefox. Also, it has a nice Cyclone theme that I don’t want to part with.

    Re: Google Chrome

    I don't have any of the FF add ons or themes to compare. But, I use Chrome as my default. I like the search in the URL, the warnings of malicious software, the intro page. I actually prefer it.

    Re: Google Chrome

    Chrome is decent, but it's got a number of practical problems yet so I avoid using it much.

    Re: Google Chrome

    I gave up on firefox, it refused to remember any of my cookies, and despite my best efforts, I couldn't get the problem fixed, so now I strictly use google chrome.

    Re: Google Chrome

    I love Firefox...actually am running the preview version called Firefox 3.5. Get it here:

    https://developer.mozilla.org/En

    It is pretty fast...but those of you who love your extensions...not all of them will work with this version...yet!

    Re: Google Chrome

    Not to hijack...but has anyone played around with Safari 4 yet? I am going to try to mess with it this weekend...but not a huge fan of the older versions.

    I had a similar problem to this a few weeks back. There's a thread somewhere - anyway, I uninstalled and reinstalled FF and it worked great again.

    The few times I've tried chrome I just haven't seen anything that would keep me on the chrome side. As others said I just FF doing to much for me the way I want it done.
