The interface looks good. Does anybody else here use Chrome?

Google Chrome is second in my list of browsers: if a site does not work with Firefox, I goto Chrome, then lastly I use IE. Chrome is very fast, it uses DNS pre-fetching. I would recommend it for casual use, but not as a main browser as it is still a beta. Try it and see for yourself. I use it with BC.

Its display/interface is really good very simple. It doesn't have much toolbar and it uses most of its window space in displaying the web page...

every tab creates a new instance on the processes, for google chrome users, check your task manager>processes... if you have 2 tabs on google chrome, there will also 2 chrome.exe..

1 tab = 1 chrome.exe.. I'm not a computer geek and i don't if that is bad or what...

Its up to you bro...

Interface: 9/10 :thumbsup:

I agree.
the interface is very clean and I like that its "self contained" if something happens in a tab the whole browser doesn't crash give it a try you'll like it

According to Wikipedia, it's not beta anymore.

Oh, it's stable now, great! Because it was never glitchy for me. When I installed, it required no additional plugins for my web surfing.
Just in case, go to these sites in Google Chrome.
