This list, ironically, was partially based off a post on Slashdot ( http://tech.slashdot.org/comments.pl?si ... d=24847535
) deriding Chrome. It is also probably the best feature list I've seen for it. The post basically says that Chrome has "taken" ideas from Opera, Firefox, Safari, and IE7. Which us true, Chrome pulls together features from diverse browsers and improves and simplifies them. Yet this fellow treats that as a bad thing.
By the way, I still use Firefox its extensive plugin database, I'm also waiting for a few stupid bugs to be fixed in Chrome. even so, Chrome is now my main browser on all my Windows machines, even though I do swap to Firefox and Opera when I need their features. It's simply quicker to startup, less cluttered, and makes basic browser, email, map lookups, etc all very quick and smooth.I'm not partisan, I'm just sick of Firefox being so clunky, and Opera has always had more feature than I will ever use, and I also hate that it tries to eat my torrent links and be my only internet application. If these other browsers learn from Chrome and improve upon the concept, then I will use whichever best suits my needs.
