    Trying it out for the mac. I like it so far but just started.

    What do some of you mac users think about it?

    I don't use a MAC, but Google Chrome is by far the best browser available IMO. Very smooth running, plenty of cool extensions & and you get more of the page and less of the browser.

    I like it. It's pretty much on par with Safari on the Mac in my book.

    How does it compare to Firefox? I'm going to download it now and try it out.

    I like it better than Firefox and I liked Firefox. What I really like about Chrome is you can just type a search into the web address and it will google search.

    I also tried the IE9 Beta, not really a fan.

    I've been rocking chrome for several months now. I like it. It's very intuitive. You can be drunk and not spell anything right and still navigate to the page you want. The url/search bar seems have a memory of everywhere you go. It guesses pretty well.

    Jeff ,I used Safari right up until they released Extensions -added a few (a few) and now it barely runs. so, progressed to Firefox, same scenario, moved on

    now I am a fully functional Chrome user. the extensions just work so much better and are less obtrusive to the whole experience. the Google Dictionary works great, you should try out the Chromey Calculator that uses Wolfrom Alpha for generating results, so not only cannot you ask it complex mathematical questions, but you can also ask it the meaning of the universe, which of course is 42. among others: Evernote, Awesome Screenshot (grab), Last.fm (can stream music from last.fm even after you've left the site), Pandora (that doesn't seem to work), Sci2ools (Online document processor and image converter toolbox. Converts imgs, pdf, doc(x), ppt(x), xls(x), ps, and extracts images from pdf) and Google Voice
    so far so good

    another alternative is Opera which has a nifty torrent client as well as Unite that allows file sharing with authorized users. I really liked the Opera experience, but abandoned for one reason or another.

    I'm sticking with Chrome, it does what I ask it to do, without bogging down the system

    The only knock I've found on Chrome is it's spell checker sucks.

    If you can spell every word you're thinking of, then you have no problem, but if it's one of those words that have a lot of vowels, you're out of luck.

    It doesn't even come close sometimes.

    But otherwise, it's the best browser I've used.

    I tried Chrome for a little while, but it's no Firefox. I'll probably give it another chance a little later once it's had a chance to catch up and polish.

    I have to say I like Chrome. It's got a very clean look and runs extremely fast. I still find myself opening up Firefox, but will stick with Chrome for now.
