    I have it installed and use it to check on websites that I work on.

    I don't use it as my primary browser as it's not open source.

    Hmmm, looks like Speed Dial is available for Firefox, too. :banger:

    I use Mozilla at times, didn't know they had speed dial. Opera is for my favorites, opening 9 at a time rocks. My default browser is still Explorer.

    I don't get too jiggy outside of news and forums. :)

    I tried Chrome when it first came out. Didn't like it, but should give it a second look.

    Chrome isn't supposed to be used as a primary browser at all.

    It is still in "beta" and anyone using it is a "guinea pig".

    Just because it sucked the first time you used it, doesn't mean it sucks now, or will suck in the future - this is one reason that companies shouldn't release rough betas to the public until they're somewhat usable. This can lead to bad first impressions (as DCortez illustrates) and no interest in the product when it reaches stability.
