    Windows 2K? Where is that listed?

    Only windows versions I saw were XP and Vista.

    You could always try to build it for yourself :P

    Isn't there a bookmarks menu apart from the "new tab" page?

    Yes. By default it isn't shown on every page but if you go to the new tab page and right click on it there should be an option to show it on every page.

    It has a drop down style menu and in addition a bar where you can put bookmarks for even faster selection.

    Edit: Ctrl+b also toggles the bookmark bar

    Yeah, me too -- online, that is. But trying older windows versions said that Windows 2000 or later was required (see screenshot).

    Yeah, I suppose. I'm not that interested, though. Maybe I will see if anyone else's built it for Linux . . . .

    [edit] Whew, the source is over 400MB! I don't think I'll try it just yet . . . . [/edit]

    Yes, that's better. Ideally, I don't want the entire bar, though. Just the possibility to access the bookmarks menu. But I'm sure that small modification will show up in the final version as a possibility.

    I like the fact that the status bar is only shown when it's needed.

    Okay, I finally got onto a Windows computer and installed Google Chrome. It's quite nice -- I especially like the "inspect element" context menu item. For some reason, though, this really annoys me: you can't right-click on context menu items. I guess it makes sense to disable this, though, because someone might right-click and then right-click again by accident. I known I've done it before.

    This made me chuckle, so I thought I'd share it with you all . . . .

    If you report a problem there is a select box that has types of problems. One of them is "Browser crash... go boom"

    Is that right?

    I was pretty surprised to see the "for nerds" thing in the task manager as well. But it's definitely useful.

    It's cool that there's another browser in the market, and I especially like the each tab in a separate process.
    This will shame IE even further Just look at how bad it is already! Now it's getting its ass kicked by another browser, too.
    And Firefox typically starts a little slow due to the stupid extensions (which also hog memory). It's a big, big problem (I'm guessing because most of them are written in javascript).
    Chrome does interest me. I'll be watching its progress and if it manages to surpass Firefox, I will switch.

    Hey when you do a Search on a large text/HTML file, it highlights the location of all the finds. Not just in the text, but it puts a mark in the task-bar, too!

    Just saw this. Hard to know if it's true, but it's certainly interesting.

    Just performed the tests there myself ( http://wd-testnet.world-direct.at/mo...jstimeTest.htm ) and they seem to be similar. Very interesting...

    It's interesting. But only 280ms difference between Mozilla and WebKit in such an intensive test? I'm not sold.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    My results were similar. What's WebKit got to do with it though? It's a JS test and I thought Chrome has a new fancy JS engine...

    V8 yes. WebKit uses the V8 engine. And Chrome uses the WebKit engine.

    I'm not very happy with this Google incursion in browser-land. Not happy at all. So I'm clearly biased here. My wish, to be honest is that Google shots itself on the foot on this one and goes back to search engines and webservices.

    With this disclaimer in mind, V8 hasn't convinced me. When V8 supports some proprietary features like some of the CISCO ASDMs and ACSs, doesn't crash on some HelpDesk applications and other internalware then i'll look at performance again. And won't probably be surprised if the managed to become slower.
