    Am I really? I got an email from about Google Chrome 2 days ago, so that's when I posted it. Even Engadget posted about Google Chrome for Mac on December 8th.

    From what I've heard the Mac version isn't as good as the Windows version. I haven't personally used it yet, but from friends that have and reviews I've seen on various websites it lags pretty bad on lower spec systems and is a ram hog.

    It's not that bad, I find it has trouble loading pages and images sometimes but then again, it's just the beta, so it's not even the final version yet. And it isn't really a ram hog. Actually, FireFox uses more ram, maybe because of the extensions though, and Safari uses a little less.

    I like it. It seams to load pages faster then safari and firefox. Noticeably faster. Some sites have trouble with it or at least parts of some sites. For the most part though it's quick and I might consider switching to it as my main browser once they get the bugs worked out and we get some proper plug-ins.

    It's like Safari from 5 years ago. Just prettier.

    For me, no adblock, no Chrome.
