  • Google Chrome

    New open source browser from google. Fast, low memory requirement, if a website crashes the browser, it only crashes the open tab, not all of them. It also has an "incognito" mode for anonymous browsing. And retouchpro.com looks excellent in it.

    Re: Google Chrome

    I'm browsing on it now, but until Google makes some major modifications, I don't think it will be my default browser. Chrome is seriously lacking in the area of customization. There's not much, if anything, you can do to customize this browser. Worst of all (for me, anyway) Chrome is lacking it's own "Google Toolbar"!!

      Re: Google Chrome

      Google owns you....

      So, are you enjoying the snappy, clean performance of Google Chrome since downloading yesterday? If so, you might want to take a closer peek at the end user license agreement you didn't pay any attention to when downloading and installing it. Because according to what you agreed to, Google owns everything you publish and create while using Chrome. Ah-whaaa? Update: It was a copy & paste mistake, apparently, and the offending language is being removed as we speak. Thanks, Googe!

          I would still be a little cautious. Google likes to produce products that provide them feedback on your habits, etc... after all, that's how they make money - data mining.

          For instance, the default sign-up of Gmail tracks all of your browsing even when using IE. You must dig into your account settings, then into My Products, then turn OFF Web History.... no one generally even knows it's ON. Surprise

                Yep, it's pretty deep.
                If you're already logged into Gmail, go to:
                Settings>Accounts>Google Account Settings>My Products>Web History
                ... and turn off Web History.

                    now it is speedy and clean looking but under the hood.... things are starting to come out about it....

                    1. it seems there a fair amount of tracking software in chrome.... which some people discribe as spyware....

                    2. another to me a very important point... is it has some serious secuirty flaws......!!

                      Re: Google Chrome

                      After reading the EULA, there's not a hope that Chrome would get anywhere near my machine.

                          Google is approaching useless
                          by Doug Nelson
                          With too many companies gaming google, it's getting to be near useless, particularly if you're looking for anything software-related. Try searching for a type of software, as opposed to a specific title, and you're inundated with useless sites touting "best X" or "top 5 X".

                          Google - Froogle = Useful
                          by Doug Nelson
                          While searching for Challenge images I was reminded of one of my most common gripes about the web: you can't research anything without wading through thousands of sites trying to sell you want you're researching.

                          But, now that Google has released Froogle.com, couldn't somebody make an...

                          Is google translate that hard to use?
                          by skoobey
                          I just get upset with people asking for help, yet they don't even bother to check if the message they are sending is remotely in English(in this case it was English, but same goes for any language).

                          Mambo jumbo, every other word; I know even google translate is better than that. How am...

                          Awhile back when we were having problems with spyware someone here suggested Firefox. I am thinking of using it but have some questions first.

                          If Idownload it does it take over for IE ? Meaning will I still have that browser on my computer as well after I put Firefox on ? If both are...

                          i've been using PicLens for a week or so now and really like it. piclens is a browser add-on. it works with many of the popular browsers. it's a two part piece, really. one part is installed in your browser and allows you to view, in a special manner, web sites that have also embedded the code.
