Just installed Google Chrome. It's come a long way since the original release that I tried - Chrome 3 is extremely fast, very nice looking and apparently Chrome 4 is even faster!

I might switch - I was using Firefox, but Chrome seems newer and faster.

Anyone else tried it and liking it?

I wouldn't trust Google for a second.
You'll have adverts coming out of your wazoo!

BTW, these forums have been deadly slow the last few days.
It's taken me about 4 minutes just to be able to post this reply, and probably another 30 seconds when I press Submit.

Krush.

I've been using it as my primary browser for over a year now, practically since the first beta came out. It's faster than any other browser I've used and the interfaces of other browsers seem so cluttered by comparison.

I'll never be able to go back. :)

Really? On this page Firefox uses 27mb, and Chrome uses 19mb.

If Google Chrome gets an equivelant of Firefox's adblock, I'd probably switch. But that's most likely never going to happen. Adfree internet and the ability to block images I don't want to look at it is something I couldn't give up.

Given that Google is the biggest advertiser on the internet.... um yeah probably not going to happen.

You said it like Firefox people made Ad-block not other people.

I've been using it for about 6 months now, and I find it a lot faster than firefox. Now I only use firefox when I need to use a special plugin, or when chrome is not supported.

Firefox is crashing a shit lot lately. But it has all these cool extensions, so I'm sticking with that crashing POS.
