Google Chrome Out of Beta

But first of all, that means Avant and Orca have updated versions Chrome is here.  All three are very fast.  Chrome being out of beta means that they quit being ridiculed by the industry, while having  a browser that offers significant conveniences like most-visited pages being “home”.  Rendering on the old version of Avant was less than perfect.  Orca was lightning-fast.  All offer incognito modes; Orca lets you open the windows last open.  All are worthwhile checking out.  The security of Mozilla Firefox (such as it is) appeals to me.  So in its day did its predecessor Netscape.  Chrome is likely to have more money put behind it than any other browser except IE and Apple’s Safari, with the latter being as yet probably unsafe for PC users.  The interface between Windows and OS X Leopard has been less than smooth from what I’ve seeing as far as utilities being imported.  And no, I think any trojans employed between the two are for personal rather than business use.

P.S.  Revising the post, the new release of Chrome seems flawless.  There’s another browser on the market that beats it for speed, but it’s not something I’m familiar with at this point.

Chrome

At last report, I was getting a (somewhat specious) error every time I opened Chrome.  Remember, it’s still in beta.  That was from the latest update; I’m awaiting some sort of news, otherwise I’ll probably try it again at about the end of the week.  Currently it’s completely uninstalled from my computer.  Speaking of uninstalls, never forget CCleaner; the link is actually to the update page.  Both tools I saw mentioned there (file recovery and Defraggler–defrag tool) are legitimate as well.  And even if you do an uninstall from CCleaner, I recommend you use it for its stated purpose, because as far as I know no uninstaller is perfect; it’s just that CCleaner gives you a couple of seconds wait rather than a minute or so to populate the friggin’ list.

Chrome

This is Google’s new browser.  There was some industry-wide hubub about the EULA (you know, the fine print that most users don’t read at the beginning of programs, the stuff they’re agreeing to?–End User License Agreement).  They’ve fixed it.  Reports now in indicate it has pretty rough edges although using the same rendering engines.  I’m frankly not going to try it for the time being.  It was on and is now off on a lot of companys’ Do Not Install lists.
