So far, I really like it, and it automatically installed all of my bookmarks, links toolbar, and history from FireFox. It also features the incognito mode.... Cool new way to add bookmarks.... In browser download box....

ONE MAJOR PROBLEM it doesn't display the reply boxes for our forum and when you go to edit a post with it, it behaves wierd and like "writes" (like insert was pushed in ms word) over the next characters, but like 4-5 seconds later it puts em back.

I did report these errors through the page button and report a bug or error....

I see nothing wrong with any of that, most it tends to relate to their side products....so far the browser is sweet but if it doesn't work on smartappsworld I won't use it. just cuz i visit here so much. What is your interpretation....I read elsewhere that google had wierd privacy practices....so I read it as well...which I (prolly should) almost never do

I'm posting from Chrome right now. The quick reply box at the bottom of the screen doesn't work, but the standard reply works fine. I also see the pause thing your talking about, but I think it has to do with the screen refresh. If you move the cursor around, it updated and goes back to normal.

Another strange thing is the location of the tab. In full screen, it lines up with the top of my screen, when in a window it doesn't line up with the minimize/restore/close buttons anymore. Do you see that?

Yeah, I guess I like to have browsers and stuff.....and once it works out some quirks it is pretty good little browser...

but i still have to love firefoxs' skins and themes for their browsers....

I just don't trust Google. They're into too many things. I think they're gathering too much information on all of us (not that I have anything to hide). Unfortunately for searching the internet for stuff they can't be beat.

The browser, IMHO, is loading pages faster. But as MM08 stated, I'd still prefer firefox because of the add-ons. But I think this could be a VERY notable browser in the future.

Reading the article MM mentioned, there is actually a fix for the text box problem. You can resize it. I didn't notice but the text box has just been reduced. If you drag it, the box gets bigger and you can enter your comment.

Oops. Quoted the wrong part. I was referring to the error where you can't see the quick comment box on at the bottom of the posts.

I posted from Chrome to this board too -- ONCE! The second time I went to a forum thread the reply entry box was tiny (less than 1 line high). I sent a screen shot to Google on it, then I un-installed Chrome.
