    it’s funny, the more i use Chrome (for windows), the more unstable it seems to get… crashes a lot more, can’t handle sites with flash, hangs every time i close a tab… all that to say, i’m switching back to Firefox

      I don’t know what your doing wrong I have used Google Chrome sents it came out. It has not crashed on me. But once and that was cause I think I had just to many tabs open. Other then that it has worked just fine.

        I guess it’s good that I don’t use it as my main browser than as I constantly have more than 200-300 tabs open even a day after resetting my session.

    Aha… Chrome is the fastest I’ve used so far, comparing this to Opera, IE 7 and 8, Newest firefox, and Safari.

    Safari and Chrome browser share some webkit from what I’ve seen though.

    And I have never, had google crash, even using it as my main browser for watching videos, playing flash games, social networking, forums, etc.
