    Sounds a bit like a thin client to me.

    I anticipate Google just becoming the new MS (no conspiracy) as they have shareholders they have to make them money they don't just have one person who can call the shots and do the right thing. I see Google focusing on the 'cloud' so this could be where they're heading with their mini OS browser combo the downside is you have to putup with ads and constant attempts to invade your privacy.

    As for IE8 one word 'beta' i think it's worth waiting for the finished product before pulling it to pieces.

    Chrome for me seems to load and display pages much faster than firefox.

    Posting via Google Chrome as we speak, so far VERY impressed, its fast, its sleek, and it loads exceptionally fast.

    It's perfect.

    Perhaps when there are more plugins etc available I will like it more. My firefox plugin list is quite big. I also thought it seemed a little cutsie/comic-strip-ish.

    For the meantime it's back to Firefox (and ubiquity - the best plugin).

    What a superb piece of software, I'm posting with it as well.

    It just shows how slow firefox and IE are when you use chrome. Loving the bookmark homepage as well, what an amazing feature.

    And I'm not even going to go into the "settings" dialogue Basics. minor tweaks, and under the hood!! Genious!! if only every piece of software was designed like this.

    Also impressed how it imported all my firefox data like bookmarks and passwords.

    The address bar google search is also awesome.

    Now all we need is a Add and flash blocker

    EDIT: found a bug with backspacing in an edit window which is a bit slow updating the display.

    Chrome does seem to be on a good path... I'm using it currently, I normally use Firefox. If this version is anything to base future versions on I think i'll be moving over to Chrome.

    Only thin I don't like about it right now is the colour and the fact that I can't open one dropdown bookmark list and move between them, I have to click on each to open it.

    That said, it's far above the usability screwup that IE is, so thumbs up.

    Got to say - just installed the Chrome Beta and it is absolutely flying. I am so impressed with this!

    One thing I've noticed is I can't click my mouse wheel to move up and down pages which is something I'm in the habit of doing. Just submitted a bug report though :P

    I wish browsers would just leave 404 pages alone!
