When the news about the upcoming Google Chrome reached my ears, I was expecting a web browser that would change the rules of the game. Surprisingly, my first impression about Google Chrome was not that great. [Surprise - Since Chrome is coming from the stables of Google]
Being a Google enthusiast, I started consoling myself that it was an after-effect of using firefox for a long time. I believed that using Google Chrome for a few more days would change my views. Alas! Here I am, after my using Google Chrome for the last 5 days.
Positive things first. There are a few unique features in Chrome that I loved.
- The way it guesses the website address (including the websites which I have never visited)
- I don't need to have my default Web browser open to see the web links I click from Feedemon.
- New Tab page that showcases the most visited pages...
But still, my mouse prefers firefox to Chrome. Hope Google Chrome comes with some breathtaking changes or I will go back to my firefox.
P.S: I was quite surprised by the buzz that Google tried to create around 'Google Chrome'

- Posts in most of the blogs of other Google products
Seems Google has big plans around the browser. Let us wait and see
