Chrome

I posted some cynicism, speculation and first gut reactions when I heard about Chrome earlier today. 

Well I fired up one of my old XP pc's that doesn't get too much action these days and downloaded Chrome. This post is being made on Chrome.

My first 10 minute reactions...

Quick download and install.
  • Nice minimalistic feel.
  • Fast rendering, on a clunky old pc that normally feels pretty slow. Not a very technical benchmark, but call a spade a spade, it is much faster then IE7 on the same machine.
  • Good, modern HTML rendering and CSS support (ala webkit)
  • Open New Tab, shows a most visited sites, with a similar feel to Opera's speed dial.

More to come...once the Linux version is available.
