Do you have something against programmers developing efficient applications?

Shoddy code doesn't matter? Just throw more hardware at it?

Sounds like AoC.

28. The real reason Chrome is faster Sep 3, 2008, 23:47 indiv
 
Chrome seems so much faster for some sites because Google did an amazing job on their Javascript engine. Run some benchmarks between it and your favorite browser, and you'll be amazed.

(Run them on your current browser first, and then on Chrome)

You can expect Firefox to catch up fairly quickly seeing how they're both open source and all.

If this is even something that you remotely think matters....get more RAM.

Forgot to mention, played through Kane and Lynch this weekend (it was ok - not worth the playthrough) and almost finished with Army of Two (another let down).

Both have enjoyable elements, but it seems the game execution was hurried in each. Army of Two is just Gears of War v1.5

The cause of all these evils was the lust for power arising from greed and ambition; and from these passions proceeded the violence of parties once engaged in contention.

Hmm - flash sites are working good. tabbed browsing over 3 tabs is cool...

I'm even running on vista business without issue.

Anyone else find that the scroll wheel will only scroll the page down, but not up, when using Chrome?

scrolling works both directions for me but flash pages are not fully functional. audio support seems to need a lot of work.

Maybe I misinterpreted "Seems a lot lighter on its feet", I was responding to that. I also assumed (possibly supported by Chrome using Android's Webkit) one of the main reasons for Chrome going light on features and putting such an emphasis on speed is for ultra-mobile devices. Memory can be very small on those and adding more prohibitive.

A very quick test shows it using more RAM when more than 3 tabs are open

I'm not seeing much point in switching. A very quick test shows it using more RAM when more than 3 tabs are open, and the difference gets increasingly bigger after that (YMMV). I like that it's sandboxed, but that's about it. FF has Adblock and password manager, both are deal-breakers.

Oh and it's another one for installing GoogleUpdate.exe, which doesn't uninstall with it and reinstalls itself if you try it manually. I don't know why Google insists on having an update app run as a process from startup anyway, can't the app just check when I load it?

What they've done with the interface is interesting too. It really is a better implementation of what Microsoft did with IE7.

The page is really prominent. Toolbars and window headers are minimal. Even the status bar is just an auto-hiding pop-up. It feels really clean.

The thumbnail history of frequently visited sites it provides when opening a new tab is already working its way into my habits.

It still has a couple of rough spots (I miss smooth scrolling and the ability to turn off underlined links) but so far I like it. I'm using it in place of FF at work now.

I just read its open source, so Ill wait till someone releases a version that removes all the ads, popups, assorted google spam and of course the infamous or should I say anti-constitutional "tracking", thank you very much.
Yeah, I'm definitely waiting for that, as well as equivalents for some other plugins that I use with Firefox.

You can opt out of tracking when you install it.

Just installed it. Its decent but it tends to hesitate at times.

People talk about the cleanness, but in FireFox I put everything (Buttons, Menus, URL and Search bar) all on one line. Very clean.

Not that I am saying do not try it, it is just nothing special yet.

o call this revolutionary is an understatement. Its takes a Google to make it happen. all I can say is expect multi-threaded browsers to become the paradigm.

I.E. 8 is Multi-threaded. Opera played around with Multi-Threading in 1994. Firefox is implementing multi-threading...
