    Default Google Chrome Reviews

    A few people have written reviews for Google Chrome so i thought i would write a quick one also. 5 things i love and hate about Google Chrome

    The Good:

    1. Fast fast fast, i really love how quick pages load and render.
    2. Minimal design, a browser is about viewing sites and not having half the screen covered in browser
    3. Separate processes for tabs, good idea and as Chrome gets more stable i think crashed browsers will be a thing of the past.
    4. Dragging tabs around, very handy because i can order things how i want
    5. Incognito mode, i won't use this often but it is good for sandboxing data so it's completely tossed out after the session.

    The Bad:

    1. No Extensions or Addons, minimal is good but so is functionality and i think if Chrome shipped with Addon support is would of been huge.
    2. No profiles by default, there is work around but it should of been stock
    3. No proper theme control, people like to customize the look of their browser.
    4. Compatibility problems with touchpads, mouse and certain websites.
    5. General lack of features, but this will come along soon no doubt.

    So there is my quick Google Chrome review and the things i love and hate about Chrome.

    What are your first impressions?

    Well, I love the thumbnails of the most viewed pages on the homepage, as well as the recently added favorites list. I think google is the best at realizing the habits of the average user, and revolving the design around that. Of course it is lacking in plugins, which is limiting but to be expected, as it is basically still in pilot. I love the speed. I personally think that with the current status of technology, the user should rarely have to wait on the computer, and anyone who can make things faster should have a statue erected in their honor. My worry is that the speed will decrease as add ons are implemented, and that when chrome is fully functional for all applications, it will lose it's luster(no pun intended, well...maybe a little).
