    Each tab will run as a different process so if one tab crashes the others will be unaffected!

    One problem i find in 7. Sometimes when you click a link you get a web null page but just refresh to get that. Hopefully fixed by RTM.

    But Google Chrome is really easy to use and can customize it using vista themes. Overall better than FF and IE. Way more than Safari. If mobiles can download Google Chrome then ill getting it.

    Google has released a new beta for Chrome, featuring changes to the new tab page including the ability to pin web site thumbnails, hide pages, and other improvements.

    You can now use "the new New Tab page" to pin web site thumbnails to a designated spot to keep better track of them. Another addition is the ability to use the layout buttons to hide parts of the page. Additionally, the Omnibox now shows icons next to each site in the drop down menu. Google has also started to implement HTML5 capabilities like video tagging into this release. And yes, the new release promises even more speed in the form of JavaScript improvements and optimizations in how Chrome fetches pages.

    When using Chrome you can choose which branch you wish to use by trying the Chrome Channel switcher app from Google. Allows you to choose from Stable, Beta or Dev releases. Or you could try the bleeding edge Chromium -

    Dev - Index of /buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-xp
    Beta - Index of /buildbot/continuous/LATEST

    I've been using Chromium since it was released and it does support quite a few extensions now, though not as reliably as Chrome does. I actually went back and downloaded the latest FF 3.5.2 and to be honest it seems to load pages faster, especially images. Page loading is almost instant whereas Chrome/Chromium seems to sometimes pause and stutter and is generally slower. I even found that using a combination of a few addons you can make FF look and act almost identically to Chrome if you so wish. See pic below -

    i think google chrome may be better than IE8 or fire fox
    google chrome isn't need you had a lot of ram or cpu ,did not like fire fox must use a lot of plus ,let your computer speed down.

    also ie8 is wrote by microsoft but google chrome is wrote by google ,it had to do a internet searcher of a long time , google chrome support to block website if it to appear in goolge's blacklist , so is most safest

    Try grabbing the open source equivalent 'Chromium' from here.
