    Has anyone tried out the new Google Chrome browser yet? I don't want to try it at work so I'm going to wait until I get home. It's supposed to be minimalistic and aid in faster and safer browsing.

    As the dust settles and checking any Google fanboi emotions at the door, what is your gut honest, first impression assessment of Chrome. Give it to me; I can handle the hairy truth.

    I tried it out last night, its okay but theres room for improvement. It seems pretty nice to me, although I did have trouble visiting some forums I usually post on. I really like the simplicity of it all.

    Looks like it doesn't like some of the JavaScript games that the post page plays. I think it's a pretty neat browser, particularly with process separation. Its handling of JavaScript is fast, so I'm using it now for Gmail and Reader, but I don't use it for general browsing because of the lack of NoScript/AdBlock/etc.

    Seems pretty cool, but after reading;

    Paul Wagenseil wrote:CNet's Ina Fried also noticed some creepy language in the end-user license agreement that must be agreed to before installing Chrome.

    Not only does Google reserve the right to update Chrome on your machine without your consent arguably necessary in an era of "zero-day" hacker exploits but it also implies that, as with Gmail, it might display ads tailored to your content right in the browser itself.

    More startling is this: "By submitting, posting or displaying the content you give Google a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any content which you submit, post or display on or through, the services."

    In other words, Google claims the right to use anything you create using its Web-based applications, such as the Google Docs office suite, the Picasa photo organizer or the Blogger blog creator to promote its own services, without permission or compensation.

    it makes me a little leery of trying it out. I am a little paranoid when it comes to intellectual property and privacy on the internet and until they tone this down I won't even think about downloading it.

    That language is from their stock EULA they reuse for various services. It's since been removed, since people were (reasonably) concerned. (Of course, since the Chrome source is available under the BSD license, it's unenforceable anyway.)

    True Blue to the end! Very Happy

    However, back on topic. I am finding that since installation that it is interfering with the behavior of both IE7 and Firefox 3.0. In other words, it is not playing nice with the others. Also, I am finding that it is not working real well with web based applications that run on anything but the latest version of Java. Some earlier JavaScripts seem problematic. It really gets squirelly with some Active Server pages as well, more so than Firefox.


    I've played with it enough for now. Since it seems to interfere with existing Web materials, it's coming off and I will check back with it when they start talking release candidate.
