A Blogger’s View On Google Chrome

Yep, I am one of those guys that just has to try every new gadget, especially when it is free, so first chance I got I downloaded Google Chrome. I am actually typing this post whilst using the Google Chrome browser and I haven’t read any other reviews as I wanted this to be completely unbiased.

Good Points

  1. My blogs all look great in it. This was a real worry and the last thing I wanted was to start modifying the themes to work with this browser.
  2. It was a breeze to set up, no problems at all and seemlessly imported all my passwords and bookmarks.
  3. It is bloody fast, it’s like the computer has been turbocharged as so far all the pages load a lot quicker than FireFox or Internet Explorer.
  4. Memory usage seems heaps better and it also allocates the memory diferently. FireFox used to increase the memory usage every time a new tab is opened whereas Google Chrome simply opens another process allowing it to manage each tab individually.
  5. Simple, no bells and whistles although I reckon there will be some users who will see this as a fault. I have no doubt that addons will become availabe that will provide the bling effect for these users.

Bad Points

  1. Shit! So far as I can tell, I can’t see any other than it doesn’t display my favicon in the search bar. It does however display it in the tabs.


I have decided to run a little poll, but as we all know a poll can only tell you so much and I would really appreciate if you could take the time to leave a comment on your personal experience with Google Chrome!
