anyone finding that chrome is better than internet explorer ?
i have been using it for only 1 day and i don't think i'd go back to i.e.
chrome is so much quicker than i.e. which was causing lots of problems for me lately. mainly crashing, taking ages to load pages and being generally unreliable.
give google chrome a try, i think you might be surprised !

Yes. Never use IE anyway but Chrome is good.

Be aware however that it is a beta.

I've been using Chrome for the past week and it's now my browser of choice. In fact it's led me to start using other Google features such as Mail, Calendar and Documents - and they integrate well. Chrome looks the way forward and for a first beta attempt is very good. I like the way each tab is a separate task so if one crashes it doesn't take down the whole browser.

I'm trialling it vs firefox and IE, it is really slow by comparison. High spec sli XP pro machine.

Pages take longer to load than in either of the others. I like the right click spell checker though, and after all it is still a BETA version.

Can you use the google chrome alongside IE7 or would you have to uninstall IE& first?
Apologies if this is a silly question!
