    Question Google Chrome & Win7

    Anybody here try Chrome on Win7? It appears to work just fine and is very fast at rendering sites.

    Man I wish I could use Chrome. There are several web applications I use for my work that just do not work with Chrome and I do not want to run multiple browsers.

    That's too bad...I like Chrome, but I'm not 100% sold on it being as secure (relatively speaking) as either IE or Firefox at this point.

    I installed Chrome because I was having some lag issues with IE in Win7 and I wanted to rule out network problems. It would appear it was IE at this point.

    I use FF, and my work stuff does not work on that either but FF has a little add on called IE tab that allows you to load any page using the IE engine within a FF tab and it remembers the domains you want to load in IE each time you visit the page.

    Chrome starts and loads webpages extraordinarily fast. No denying that! Works well with Win7 too. Most Vista softies will work fine with Win7, I suppose!.

    Tried it did not like it, read the reports on its poor security and the patches it required right away. To my mind it is not a complete browser as yet, mind you that was some months ago. Personally I think that google have gone too far with this and should stick with what they do best. Having said that I must admit IE8 has really surprised me in being so good and more than competes with firefox now
