The flip side however is that if one of those processes hit a snag and crash/hang, you can simply close the offending tab without crashing the complete browser. This is not possible on other current browsers.

      you know, I prefer non-crashing browsers. And the only thing that makes 'tabs' lockup is bad java-script. Luckily konqueror detects javascript gone bad and gives you the option to kill the script. Now that is userfriendly.

        Plugins such as flash and others can also lead to crashing browsers as well.

            Unfortunately nspluginwrapper is just as buggy and causes just as many browser crashes as many other plugins.

                (...which will be to Chrome as Iceweasel is to Firefox)

                  I find chrome faster for loading Gmail, facebook and all these Web 2.0/AJAX powered sites as compared to Firefox/Opera. But right now it lacks too many features provided by firefox for me. Plus one thing is very crappy.. wtf does it have to share it's proxy settings with IE???

                    Yes, Google Chromo is a good thing to use as a search engine since Google Chrome is attractive, fast and has some impressive new features present in it.

                        I presume all of you are using the Windows version for testing this thing.

                        As in all things Google, Chrome will also be permanently in Beta.

                          Looks like google has a staggering team of 3 peeps working on the Chrome Linux port.

                            Hmmm... Interesting. When the port is done, I'll certainly give it a try.

                              wow. Gotta say, even with the few people (which doesn't surprise me), I expected it to be a little farther along that that.

                                "The other three guys" besides himself. That makes 4. Still a pretty small team, granted.
