Google Chrome for Mac: So far, so good
Look, I don't hate Safari. But there's something about it I just don't like about it. I can't put my finger on it, maybe it's the way it does favorites, or the tabs, I don't know. And don't get me started on Firefox. It's been in my doghouse ever since it couldn't do the simple task of logging on to Gmail. So I have really high hopes for Google's new browser, Chrome. Mind you, Chrome is in "pre-beta" at the moment, yet it seems to be running pretty well so far. No crashes in a few hours testing, (no surprise there), flash videos don't play yet (boo-hoo, no craptacular advertising) but other then that it's solid. I like the look and feel of the tabs, and the performance is gigity-gigity good. Hopefully Google will bring along flash and all the other stuff we expect soon, but barring something cataclysmic, this is my browser from now on for the Mac.
