I used Google Chrome regularly for a while, then went back to Firefox for everyday use.

What I STILL use Chrome for: printing blog pages - sometimes, FF makes a mess on print, and I don't like the bare "printer friendly" format that is offered, but, quite often, Chrome will print just what I see on the screen! Lots of times, that is just what I want.


(case in point: <http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn18427-space-diver-to-attempt-first-supersonic-freefall.html>)

{#Embarassed} EDIT - erm, in this case, Firefox does equally well, but you get the idea...

Took me a minute to remember ... found it on the TheAppleBlog, MB. It's called ClicktoFlash.
I hope I haven't messed with Safari but it seemed reliable. My MBook's purring like a kitten since I put it on.
(Damn. Please ... no pictures of kittens.)

Supposed to eliminate all that processing sound I get when I flip around pages and sites. It actually has made a difference the past few days. I haven't "heard" the Mac steaming away since. I'll keep Chrome around - but I'm staying here on Safari. I only use FF when I have to access school board links.

I would suggest that you send google your concerns; I am sure they welcome feedback.

It doesn't let you set a minimum Font size and its built in font size is way to small for my old fart eyes and I got tired of manually increasing the Font size on each and every page.
 
ayup - more little, obvious things that need to be fixed.  it's only been out for a couple of months and I do like the speed of the thing.  it has potential.

I used Chrome for a day and then went back to Firefox because Chrome wanted me to log in on RP and I couldn't remember my password

I've been playing with Chrome since yesterday evening and have decided that the Mac version still needs work.  There are some very simple features that are missing, like being able to edit bookmarks.

The first web page I got to that needed Java, the placeholder informed me that there was no plugin available, but a quick Google session proved that this was incorrect.  I have it working just fine now.

Seems to be a feature brought on by posting from Firefox...

EDIT: Except that this post is from Google Chrome!!

Okay, replying to my own post from FF3:

Okay, what happened to pound smile?!?

I was trying to embed a smiley using Bill's popup, like this {#Smile}
So far so good...

EDIT: I added another smile to the right, and then compared the HTML from the duff one and the good one:

<img title="{#Smile}" src="tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif" border="0" alt="{#Smile}" /><img title="{#Smile}" src="scripts/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif" border="0" alt="{#Smile}" />

Strangely, the URLs are different!  For the same smiley!
