Last night I was talking about the potential distractions of Google Chrome and tonight I have been using it for four hours and am very impressed. My experience is faster loading, simple navigation, love the most-used page views on the startup tab. Focusing my efforts on ChemSpider page loading is MUCH faster for “heavy pages” and I have seen no issues at all except with the applets. The structure drawing applet and the spectral display applets both fail to load. Based on an internet search this appears to be a common problem but some people seem to have it solved. I have tried the reported approach and failed but I have a feeling that in the next couple of days there will be other reported solutions. Overall I am impressed with Google Chrome and, when Java Apps are supported (or I can get them working) I think this might just be the next favored broswer…but I will be downloading IE 8.0 beta shortly to play with too…

 

Stumble it!

    i’m willing to try it out just to see if it works more efficiently than FireFox… if it’s faster than Firefox and isn’t IE, then i’ll use it

    Just be careful what you post with Chrome!
    According to The Register, Google has put a rather nasty clause into the EULA:

    As for myself, I’ll wait a bit before trying it out, because I am not in the mood to waste my time compiling it from source and they “forgot” to provide binary for linux… It is strange that they live nad breathe on linux and open source but neglect to support it in their product.

    Google Chrome is really fast!
    Now I can sort 200,000 records inside of Browser (Chrome) just in 1 sec. (Faster than Microsoft Excel):
