Google Chrome 5.0.307.7

Send Article to a Friend

Google's latest release of Google Chrome for Mac adds several features that are necessary for the browser to be considered a viable alternative to Firefox or Safari. The latest version includes support for extensions (similar to add-ons in Firefox that extend your browser's functionality), the capability to sync bookmarks, and new bookmark, cookie, and task managers. Also, gesture support has been expanded to enable users to pinch-to-zoom, and use Command-three finger swipe to navigate pages in new tabs. Be aware though, Chrome is still in beta testing and therefore may be prone to buggy behavior. (Free, 18.8 MB)

Yeah, it's so buggy that it crashes on Acid Test 3.

And when I went to report the crash, their form doesn't list Mac OS X as an operating system choice; only various flavors of Windows!

Google has a long, long way to go before I'll even entertain thoughts of Chrome.
I actually find Chrome to be very stable, very fast, and now that I can use extensions, it's replaced Firefox as my default browser.

I have had it up an running for 30 hours. In that time I've had two different pages crash, but not the browser itself.
