Chrome? I stop using it already

    I can't remember the last time I use Google Chrome. Kinda wonder if anyone out here still using them.

    Rob Hof of Businessweek said that it didn’t play so well with some sites eg. Yahoo?: D.

    But the main reason I stopped using Chrome is because I hate to see the "UNDERLINE" links which I couldn't figure out how to disable. At least in FF3 there is a way to disable the "underline" links.

    I think speed alone won't make it a better browser? :D

    but dude i think anyone can stand to see a line. whats the bug matter. Chrome is super fast and light-weight without much plugins. I use it along with my primary browser opera. Opera is second to chrome but chrome is simply good. But has some security issues from wht i've heard. :)

    I use chrome only when I want to test certain pages.
    Google need more evolution to attract me.
    But I am quite optimistic with chrome ,
    it is obvious internet and IT giant like google will never give up market share like browser.
    That is also the secret Bill Gates beat netscape and become dominant.

    Chrome is good, no doubt.
    But then, Firefox is always the best.The add- ons for firefox can do wonders for you.
    Opera is super fast and light weight.Chrome is faster.

    Opera is good browser but i never managed to use it for more time. Chrome has its problems, it is depending on some IE feautuers, just try changing proxy in Chrome :/

    I play with Chrome every once in a while... My main Beef with it is the Theme or lack of, I just hate the way it looks...

    Mozilla's "Minefield" tho just in the Alpha stages right now looks to be one heck of a Fast Browser and when it becomes a Firefox Release Candidate I am going to check it out for sure...

    Chrome is good! Little plain, but much under the surface. Time will tell if it's going to be one of the biggies.

    I personally currently prefer FF3 because of the amount of addons, madurity of the project and... also because I've got used to use it.
    Maybe in the future I may consider switching to Chrome... but not now.

    I hate it, it's got a really stupid EULA agreement.

    Chrome and my old computer did not get along. I haven't used it since the first week it came out. Figure I'll wait until the bugs are fixed, and there are some more add ons. I like Flock.

    Is google chrome any good is it worth switching from firefox? I have had trouble with firefox 3 so switched back to firefox 2 and have also tried the flock browser which is great similiar to firefox and takes the same extensions.
