Windows 7: Google Chrome 5 Beta Review

21 Mar 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I have been using the dev channel for some time now. I had tried Chrome in the past and always went back to Firefox. With the addition of extensions, I am now strictly a Chrome user. It launches faster, loads pages faster and pretty much does everything better than FF. I was a huge FF fan until 3.6. I don't know what they are doing over there, but FF is going downhill IMO. Chrome is so much faster than FF. When I open the browser it just pops up, with FF it takes a couple seconds before it opens. I have downloaded and installed Minefield(Firefox 3.7 Alpha), it is better than 3.6, but still doesn't come close to the speed of Chrome. This of course is all my opinion and each and every one of us are entitled to our own opinion and preferences.

I want to like it but I can't
That's really surprising.

The speed is one of the main reasons why I made the switch because it was so fast. I am thinking it loads just about every website including sevenForums just about instant as soon as I type it in. And I really am not bluffing.

I am just using simple Road Runner standard connection as well.
