Google Chrome |OT|

Is this worth downloading for Mac? I use Chromium at the moment and I'm not really sure if I should just use the official release or not. Also, it's ugly as sin in OSX.

I can finally cross it off the list!

Signs we're living in the future:

  • Hoverboards
  • Self-fasting shoes/jackets
  • No more "http://"
  • End to world hunger

I love the UI changes - everything's more understated.

Google finally is making the turnaround on the UI front across Gmail, Chrome, and Android.

Why is Chrome's revisions done in such huge increments? 6 already? In a few years, we'll be at Chrome 13? :lol

Installing. <3
To be fair does the number really matter? The key here is they are a big web based ad company, and just in general are trying to put a lot behind their browser. You're just gonna get a alot of revisions when you are working this fast. That being said I think opera does their numbering system better.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but is there any extension for Chrome that adds RSS feeds in an intuitive and integrated way (e.g. a sidepane)? It's the only reason I'm still using Firefox (too used to the "Brief" extension), and I'd love to have something similar in Chrome, since I'm sick of the memory hogging Firefox does.
I'd like to know this too. RSS and a few Extensions are the only reason I'm still with Firefox. But with the latter, it's always possible to see those ported to Chrome.

BTW, what's Extension Syncing?

I'll take a stab in the dark and guess the ability to sync your extensions?...I mean what is bookmark sync? replace bookmark with extensions and ta-daaa!

Sorry for being an ass.

Nah, it is kinda stupid being an avid fan of Xmarks and knowing what that does :lol I thought maybe it was something different especially considering I could find no Syncing option anywhere.

Just installed Chrome 6 (on it now) and I've gotta say: faster than Chrome 5, and WAYYYYYYYYYYYY faster than Firefox 3.x... so much faster. Installed the adblock extension and I think I'll stop using Firefox at this point. NeoGAF loaded faster on Chrome 6 for the first time than it does cached on Firefox!

And the god-awful, image-intensive IGN.com loaded about 4-5x faster on Chrome than it did on Firefox, just tested 'em right now. Wow. It's like the difference between driving a Civic and driving an Evo. :lol

Quick impressions:

- Gmail is TONS faster and feels much snappier. The yellow "Loading..." at the top lasts for less than a second now when before it could take 4-6 seconds.

- Ctrl-clicking/middle-clicking links is a lot faster, but still slightly sluggish. Usually I Ctrl click a bunch of threads from the User CP so this is very important to me.

Edit- This is pretty big for me, when you press "Alt," it selects the wrench like it did before, however now you can move left to select extensions that have badges! :D :D :D Then enter or space to open it up!

The extensions API has opened up to context menus. I expect we'll see an extension for that with Chrome 7.

It synchronizes the extensions tied to your Google account if you want. I don't know if it actually synchronizes the data associated with each extension, though (like preferences for a setting, etc.)

Am I from the future or something? I'm pretty sure I've had these changes for a couple of weeks.

edit:
To the below post.. yep. Just checked my version. Don't remember installing a beta build.

Thank you! Chrome never clicks with me before, too many page errors and just terrible experience but now I'm seriously considering to make it my default browser. Really great improvement, blazing fast, no more page error, and extensions.
 
#85
does chrome finally have a decent ad blocker that just doesn't make an ad not appear (but still running in the background), and also block video ads (gametrailer)?

It's definitely the best stable browser out now. Firefox 4 and IE9 are shaping up pretty strong as well (FF4 for taking UI cues from Chrome and crazy stuff like tab candy, IE9 for actual standards-compliance and GPU acceleration), but as far as out-there, stable versions go, Chrome 6 is the current king. :D

I think adblock now actually blocks the majority of ads, except for flash stuff before videos. One of the reasons I stick with Firefox.

I guess I'll stick with Firefox for now, but damn the memory

I'm surprised that stable and beta are currently at the same version #, and they were updated at the same time, too (but beta just went from 6.x.x.51 to 6.x.x.53, rather than from 5.x like stable)

I just found out Chrome has a context menu api and whipped this up quickly.

unless somebody beats me to it (or already has) I'll try and put this up soon for people to download
