Google Chrome Review
Yesterday I downloaded the official release of Google Chrome (BETA). I didn’t quite know what to expect at first, as I’ve actually heard very little about this new web browser. I gave it a try yesterday and and on some machines at home last night. So far I am very impressed with Google’s new browser. Its fast, its user friendly, its minimilastic and works great. I love the tab features and simple interface. Page rendering if quite fast and I was impressed with how quickly it loads some web pages that takes IE a bit longer to load. Unfortunately, OWA (webmail for Exchange) still looks just as bad as it does in Firefox, but does work. Thats really my only gripe and its not a Google Chrome issue, its the way Microsoft wrote OWA’s code. I’m going to set Google Chrome as my default web browser for a while and see how it goes, maybe run a few weeks with it and see if I can make it a permanent switch. One thing I did notice is that launching links from Outlook seems much snappier with Chrome than it is with IE7.
