Has anyone tried it? The beta just came out. I'm using it right now, and despite a few quirks excepted in beta, I like it a lot. It is faster than anything I've tried, as well.

I heard about it, kinda big news I guess. It's nice they made it open source but ironically, in the spirit of that very "open source-sness", indie development and healthy competition I think I'll be sticking to mah Fire Fox and its oh so helpful plugins. :) Out of curiosity I'll probably try Chrome sometime in the future when its a bit more complete.

Just downloaded it, wow. In conjunction with iGoogle, it's wonderful. For those of you who are just procastrinating for the hell of it, I suggest you give it a shot. It's very fast and clean. Plus the spellchecker will eradicate some of the atrocious spelling errors that I see a lot of. That leaves you to work on Grammar :p I've switched from the latest FireFox, if you want to know...

I can see that. Seeing as you capitalized that word in the middle of a sentence there.;)

I'm glad someone noticed it, even though the smiley was a give away :p
