It look's nice with no issues that I can see. Larger screen area makes for more TP to see!!

I am with FF3 and enjoy. But have to give the speed to chrome.

It will be interesting to see what it's like on full release!

I'd be interested to hear results of this actually. There shouldn't be any problems with how TP looks in any case because Chrome uses the same back end as Safari which we test on. Some parts of TP (as other sites) that use a lot of javascript should load much faster, like for example the new accommodation area. That's really where the most speed gains can be found. I think on pages like the forum, the speed will be better, but not in an incredibly noticable way.

Using it now. Like Google's site, it has a very simple look, which is good. It's also the fastest in terms of loading compared to IE and FF.

TP runs perfectly fine too! :)

Just downloaded Chrome yesterday on my work PC.......it's not too bad. It is nice having tabs for different pages.....but I still like having my bookmarks listed to the side like IE and FF.....haven't figured out how to do that with Chrome yet. So far it seems you have to open a new tab and click on "other bookmarks", which are listed in alphabetical order. And I haven't figured how to change the surround colors yet......but I was only playing with it while actually working.....tough to work and play at the same time!!!!

Future updates as I get them...depending on the workload.

It looks fine with this site but overall needs work.

As mentioned bookmarks are a tad clumsy yet and some functionality is lost.

I can see it replacing both IE and Firefox in a few years of that I have no doubt.

From what I've been hearing (yeah, no Mac version yet so that pretty much means no go for me!), early adopter are primarily Firefox users which is incredibly interesting and most likely not at all what Google had in mind. But a lot have switched back too or still use FF regularly. I think a lot of these users are developer types who just rely on FF's plugins. I know those are what have kept me from switching to Safari a few times when frustrated with random crashes on FF that Safari doesn't have. It will definitely be interesting to see where this ends up. Personally I'd be hesitant about giving Google yet another way to follow what I'm doing.... spreading that knowledge over a few different companies is a bit of risk management for me :)

Yer, I am back to FF again. Chrome is still lacking a few plug in essentials. I rely on things like fox marks and save sessions.

Chrome will open back up where you left off, but not save different sessions. It also have a few blips in it's cache I am picking up.

Then again it is still beta.

Yea I guess the FF users using it are the type that like to fiddle. It's IE and the 70% that google want to crack, I think they are the type that get what's on their PC, and don't like to change. Whereas FF people like to change to their own needs.

A linux version is needed too. But I think that will be a way off considering the user numbers.

Time will tell.

But I am with Sam on the google big brother thing. These days their control panel gives you access to so much from every aspect in the web. Putting all your eggs in one basket is never a good idea. If and then the corporate media types come knocking on Google's doors wanting access to everything their users do, then that's not good!
