    Just gave it a quick spin, seemed pretty good, faster, neater but there was one major problem. Ads. I'll stick with Firefox and AdBlock Plus ta very much.

    I gave it a quick spin myself. Other than maybe the startup, I didn't notice a speed difference. The design was very clean... I could almost say spartan. But it seemed to perform well.

    However, I noticed that it ran the process "GoogleUpdate.exe" constantly in the background, even when the browser was shut down. I wouldn't mind that running when the browser is on, but I have enough bogging down my Windows computer at work without processes running unnecessarily in the background, so I uninstalled Chrome. I'll stick with Firefox.

    I have since heard some interesting things that were in the Chrome EULA. I missed those when I installed it.

    Google is growing so fast!
    I would not be surprised if/when they release an OS.

    Here is the offending passage. The bold was made by me.

    11.1 You retain copyright and any other rights you already hold in Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services.

    Apparently, online backlash has already led Google to change the EULA.
