Question Google Chrome

Anybody try it or use it much yet?

I like it for the most part. Still rough around the edges, but it is a Beta. I'm trying to integrate using it with Firefox, which isn't as hard as it should be since Firefox has been crashing on me lately.

Just downloaded it so we'll see...

I've read it's already got a bunch of issues so your "rough around the edges" may end up an understatement.

Just what I needed, another browser besides Firefox & IE to aggravate the **** out of me.

I have been using it for a few days now and have not found anything to complain about just yet. I like the default page that shows the last few pages you visited.

I'm using it and I like the interface and homepage, but it seems to take up a lot more computer usage than IE.

That is probably because it launches a new instance of the executable for each tab that you open. Hopefully Google cleans it up to where the resource overhead is not as bad. It is not any worse than Firefox which just seems to really mess with your computers' performance if you want to have more than 4 or 5 tabs open.

I'm not one to have a ton of tabs open, so it doesn't bother me too much.

It's not quite as compatable with websites as I'd like, but then again, like I said before, can't complain too much since it is the first release beta.

Haven't had any performance issues yet.

No Mac version FTL. I am quite happy with Safari on OS X, though. Very fast.
