in Browsers

Google Chrome on Mac OS: very nice

The Google love affair continues. The Google Chrome browser, in beta, is lightweight and robust. Over the last two days, I’ve made Chrome my default browser. In that time, I’ve had no problems at all. None. By comparison, Firefox feels sluggish in normal browsing, and Safari tends to choke on Google Docs. Even the dreaded Flash hasn’t caused me any problems. To experience this level of stability and performance in a preview / beta is just fantastic.

I think I have a new default browser!

For those that care, I’m running Mac OS X 10.5.8 on a 15″ MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 2 GB RAM.
