    Has anyone given Google Chrome a go yet? Ive just downloaded it and it seems pretty good so far. For anyone that hasnt herd of it, its a new web browser built by google.

    The software is nice and simple and seems much quicker than Explorer or even Firefox. I think Explorer and Firefox have gotten too complex and are beginning to get a little sluggish.

    I havent used Chrome for long but my initial thoughts are that it will be a good web browser. Its quite clever as well, the nav bar automatically starts to search the internet for possible web site you may be looking for.

    More importantly The Mansion looks good on it, it has a higher resolution rate so it fits web pages in nicely and neatly

    If/when they come out with a Linux version, I'll give it a try. Till then, I'll stick with Firefox.

    Chrome is interesting, but firefox's extensions will keep me loyal for a while... some extensions for chrome are supposed to be on the horizon but they aren't here yet.

    At the moment I use Safari, because I'm VERY short of hard drive space and Firefox is a resource hog at the best of times.

    I guess the thing that is holding me back from using chrome is the way that it sends any information you put into it straight to google. Its not that I don't trust massive faceless corporations.. its just that, no.. wait.. it is that I don't trust them.

    I'd rather my information went to Google rather than Microsoft. You can't escape information sending, it happens with every click of the web.

    I'm gonna see how I get on with it for a while

    Dollyanne tried it early, but dropped it. It was probably too early and not quite ready--dolly should try it again. Right now, dollyanne uses Firefox because of the big bug found in Internet Explorer recently, and plus, the animations at Chastity Mansion seem to work better with it.

    Huggs,

    Burger is definitely right - Chrome is mainly busy with phoning home and there is no reason to trust Google.
    However, there is an alternative which is as fast and slim as Chrome but without the "phoning-home-feature"

    Try the Iron-Browser http://www.srware.net/en/ . It is free and there is a portable version as well so you do not even need to install it on your harddrive. The only thing you need is a fairly fast memory stick.
    In fact, Iron is the original and Chrome is the copy!!

    BTW, there is a version for MAC users, too.

    Incognito in Chrome

    Hello everybody

    Nobody has mentioned the "Incognito" settings on Chrome which does not keep a history - which some may find useful

    I understand MS are looking to introduce a similar setting in IE*
