Faster than firefox when opening up.

Dislike:
There's no favorites/bookmarks menu below the address bar, before I could middle mouse click, and it would open up in a new tab. Now I have to open a new tab, and type in the address. I added a speedial, and it still takes longer. Is there an extension for like a bookmarks toolbar?
The AdBlocker isn't that great.
Ctrl-Shift-B toggles the bookmarks bar under the address bar.

I went through a phase of trying Chrome, then removing it, then installing it again.

I have been on it for about 6 months now. I love it.

I find that I really didn't need a huge library of bookmarks to always go to, I typically visit about 6-10 sites that are on the New Tab thumbnail page. The sync is also awesome. I have my main Windows 7 PC, my Windows XP Sp3 Dell at work and my laptop, a Mac, all with with Chrome and my bookmarks are all there.

It's fast and they update it quite often, most of the time without you even noticing it.

It's awesome.

I've never used Chrome, but I just might give it a shot.

Is there anything like the NoScript addon for Chrome yet? Until I can block dangerous java scripts that beget java scripts that beget java scripts that beget java scripts that beget even more java from who knows what sites that try to install malware on the sly...I can not dump Firefox!

I went and gave it a try. Installed it, no addons or anything, then tried to come back here. Chrome would not open www.nvnews.net/vbulletin. Tried several times, went to a few other sites that opened...ads were popping up all over that I don't normally see, flash garbage hovering over the screen etc. Tried here again, would not load....tried in Firefox, was fine, Uninstalled Chrome.
