    well that is a completely different thing.

    Ok, but even so, it's silly to subject ourselves to some distraction just because we are humanly capable of shielding ourselves from it when there is a reasonable alternative.

    Also, I just found out that I can't do Ctrl+I to use italics when making a post in chrome. Man.

    I'm saying that for some people, it is not a distraction.

    Sure, if some shit is dancing across the text, but that doesn't really happen with animated gifs, just flash.

    The biggest thing was the shock of realizing how many ads were blocked in Firefox when I started using Chrome at work.

    I'll never get why there's such an outcry when someone suggests that maybe being able to control what does and doesn't load on a page is a good thing.

    Chrome doesn't begin fellating me the second I start up my computer, so it's essentially useless.

    For some odd reason my chrome won't update anymore, for the past few months. Says it can't contact the update server.

    I saw a girl using Chrome in the row in front of me

    in an arts class


    It was at that moment I knew that Chrome was no longer cool and indy. I guess I gotta start using Opera or some shit

    'Normal' scrolling feels slower now (must be related to the addition of middle mouse scroll) and space/shift+space can no longer be used as alternatives to Page Up/Down.

    Other new features are form auto-complete, full page zoom, browsing profiles and proper restoration of closed windows in the New Tab page. The Chrome team has also changed its update 'channels' (new channel changer needs to be downloaded from here) - it's now stable (default, quarterly updates), beta (previously dev, monthly updates) and dev (where you can get Chrome 2.0, weekly updates).

    The new feature I like the most is browsing profiles. Ionut Alex Chitu has a good description of it (and the other new features):
    profiles are a great way to separate Chrome's settings in different categories: you could create a work profile with its own homepage, bookmarks and browsing history and profile for your personal projects. The great thing about Chrome is that you don't have to close the browser to change your profile: just open a new window in a separate profile.

    Chrome was indy once?

    And have fun using Opera. I'm sure the two of you will be very happy together, what with its features and extra pixels.
    Is it actually possible to validly criticise Opera?
