GOOGLE CHROME: OUT TO GET THE BIG FOX?

Google unveiled Tuesday the beta version for its new Internet browser called GOOGLE CHROME. I've been using it for a few hours now and so far it's good. 

Is it  good enough to replace the ever reliable Mozilla Firefox?
THAT'S the question.



Here are some of my initial observations:

1. Easy download and unzipping of the browser's program file.
2. Simple design and interface; and easy to learn tabs and menus.
3. Very fast loading of the WWW pages - definitely faster than IE and Firefox.
4. No add-on feature (YET) which is really a bummer.
5. I am having a hard time browsing some of Facebook's applications
6. Too sky blue and "too Google" for me. I love the colorful tabs of Firefox.
7. It's only available for Vista and XP Operating Systems. No MAC version yet.

I am still unsure if I will make the huge leap from Firefox to Chrome since I'm already very much settled with Firefox. But Google Chrome is definitely worth considering and is a nice alternative (or second browser at least) to the big brown Fox.

Interested? Here's the download link: Google Chrome
Let me know what you think! :)
