Google Chrome

Contemplating installing Google Chrome as my default browser, but keep reading very mixed reviews - especially issues over privacy and Google hoovering up all kinds of info about you. Any observations to help me.

I have it as my default browser, it is very fast does not contain the bloat of IE and is rated as being one of, if not the most secure browser available. Give it a go you won't look back!

Been using it for ages with no problem

I can't recommend it highly enough. 'Fast' is its main attribute. I also find it much more intuitive than IE.

Thanks for the help, guys. Downloading.

Good fast browser with no print preview being it's main fault. Also doesn't actually print what you are expecting it to. If you need to print from the web at all then keep a copy of Firefox and use that when you need to print. Other than that I have no problems with it.

OK as a rule, better the any of the IE family, but a git when (as mine has) the autofill passwords option fails. Write all your passwords/usernames down somewhere...wish I had.

The PRINT routine is a real pain! I much prefer to have a toolbar with the usual File etc headings.

I tried it, but it seemed not to work too well on my machine. Don't know why, but now use Firefox as I find that some sites including PcAdvisor work alot better instead of on IE or Aol.
