First Thoughts on Google Chrome

Chrome, the new browser from google is pretty light weighing in at a download size of just 475KB. To put that in perspective Firefox 3.0 weighs at 7.8MB, Opera 9.52 weighs at 6.7MB. Those are with an ‘M’, mind you. The experience is definetly refreshing even though the browser takes a bit longer to create a new page, given that it has to spawn a new process for each tab. Also my touchpad scrollbar doesn’t seem to work while i try to scroll up. It works fine when i scroll down. Being a beta, we can still expect many improvements to come. But Gmail has been in beta ever since it has been released. Let’s see how long Chrome stays in beta.

PS: Yes, I am writing this blog in chrome 🙂
