    I agree...Way faster than FireFox or far.

    I wonder if Google is pre caching the pages in the background?

    Even though it is beta I will give it a good try.

    The rendering engine is the same as Safari / iPhone (WebKit) but they have developed their own V8 Javascript Engine which is apparently twice (?) as fast as any of the others. With modern Web 2.0 apps JavaScript plays an important role so it will affect performance.

They say it is built in I see nothing.

    I installed it and like it.

    I'm sending this from Chrome.

    I agree that it's really, noticeably faster than IE or Firefox...

    BTW it was announced today on NPR as another way Google is

    trying to compete with Windows and make the browser an

    applications' platform.

    Does it only work with Vista? I was about to download it and saw that statement and forgot it. Will it support XP?

    I changed my mind!

    I am going to try it now.

    I kicked Opera to the curb, and even though Firefox is main, right now, I will mess with Chrome.
