Google released Chrome! but I didn't like it...


Recently google released Chrome, which I just tried, its a brand new web browser from Google.

I was pretty much excited about it.

Intially it seemed rocking... the designs were great, browsing was fast, easy to use and much more.

but it shows tumbnails of your most frequently visited nine pages when you open a new tab... I don't like this feature.. though it may be useful to others, but I don't want it.

And the problem is that I was not able to find any options to turn it off.
Finally I found one thing known as incognito which lets you browse without saving your history, but than again every time I open the browser I have to open a new incognito window and than do my browsing.. :(

The shortcut to incognito window is Ctrl+Shift+N which is difficult to remember, so I thought to change it to something else.. but could not find any options which allow me to change short cuts.. :(

So, finally, I returned to Firefox 3 just in few minutes...

They didnt put anything completely new.

The start page has been inherited from Opera.

The incognito thingy is also available as a plugin with firefox.

So in the end, it's just one more browser but with a better memory management.

I would stick to firefox3 too.

Yes, the start is inherited from Opera, but Opera atleast gave the option to set them manually.

Yep.. its just one more browser..!!!

I hope google will add some more features to it.. making it interesting.. till than Firefox 3 rockz.... :)
