Certain features look interesting, like dynamic tabs, incognito mode and crash control. The safety features also appear to be quite impressive.
I’m really interested in the safety features, so I conducted a quick test with Chrome. I visited a site that I know contains malware to see if Chrome would stop me from visiting the URL (malware programs are particularly dangerous because they can infect your computer by simply visiting a URL.) Chrome performed well. It prevented me from visiting the URL, and offered a detailed explanation of the threat.
I can also report that Chrome is lightning fast: the application opens in a flash and browsing is effortless. This is based on my quick and dirty test. Who knows: it may slow down over time.
Chrome is only available for Windows XP and Vista. I’m going to take it for a more thorough test drive on my Windows XP machine later. I can’t use it on my other machines since they run older versions of Windows.
If you decide to give it a try, feel free to post your comments here. Thanks!
