    I think thats what incognito windows are for.

    They keep no history, password, cookie or other data after the window is closed.

    So far I'm quite impressed with the slimness of the UI less screen realestate wasted on bars and buttons is always good. Given the prevalence of web UIs for everything from servers to e-mail now their single tab single process concept with stronger faster code behind them can only be a good thing. The web has moved on so far from html now that I think something needed to be done. I don't think this is the be all and end all but its certainly an interesting glimpse of where we could / should be going. Using the youtube or google apps ajax interfaces in chrome is certainly a much better experience than IE7 or Firefox especially on low spec hardware.

    It wont be replacing my Firefox either personally or network wise for the foreseeable future but I'll keep it installed and updated and watch its progress. Network wise its going to need GPO control and enforcable proxying etc before it can even be considered on machines within the network. It currently seems to automatically bypass any proxy you set if the page its looking for is blocked

    about:%

    Is it supposed to crash when you put this in? So far (5 mins) it seems very quick. I could grow to like it...

    Do NOT Install Google Chrome If....

    I have recently uninstalled it by going to an earlier System Restore Point.

    Reasoning for getting rid of Google Chrome:

    It created a second network connection in 'Network and Sharing Center' [hate that american spelling]

    This has the effect of killing my Internet connection [I am using Vista and my ISP is TalkTalk] I have seen additional network connections added when I have installed software before and each time my connection has been cut [Example: After installing Cisco VPN 5 for Vista]

    Google Chrome did not create a Restore Point before running through the setup process [I supose I should have done this myself and not rely on the program]

    So if you are:

    Running Vista and using TalkTalk as your ISP I would advise that you DO NOT install Google Chrome.

    Perish the thought.
