Later today Google is expected to release a new web browser based on Webkit (what Safari uses) and Firefox. I feel that it will be a welcome addition to the browser wars.
I used Firefox, but have notice a lot more browser crashes with 3.x than previous versions and it feels quite laggy sometimes even on a Quad processor machine with 3gb RAM. It gets to the point sometimes where I just load up Safari or Opera to surf sometimes.
IE just sucks. I ONLY use IE for site testing during web development and for the “best” experience accessing my day job’s Outlook Web Access (OWA) for email. Other than that, IE is not a part of my day to day browser use.
If this Google takes the best of Webkit and Firefox and makes it “better, faster, stronger”, then I will use it. Of course I will be frank on my review of it and will do my best not to be biased since I use Google almost exclusive for my search needs, Email (Google Apps for Domains), Analytics for stats, etc.
I will post up a review once I get my hands on it and can put it through it’s paces.
I think Google will have more downloads of this browser in the first 24 hours than Firefox did on it’s 3.0 launch day if it posts up something on the front page of Google. This could be huge.
i've been using Chrome for about a day now and it seems to be a lot faster than FireFox or IE… though i do miss the "recently closed tabs" feature in Firefox
