    It is installed and running. I am typing this response on it. I am liking it so far. It is fast. We will have to see what I find as I use it more.

    lol! if you rick click on a black spot at the top of the browser and select task manager. You will all he tabs and how many resources they are using. The thing that has me laughing is the botton in there labeled "Stats for nerds" lol ...

    Something else about is also is that if you rick click on the page you are on and select inspect elements; it will bring up the html of the page and anywhere on that page that is hovered over with your mouse will highlight that section of the page in a yellow color

    Some cool features so far.

    Once it gets addon's like Firefox, it might be on my list of browsers.

    My guess for the dropping of the of the tag "Beta" is so they can pitch it to computer manufacturing companies to have it put on as many computers as possible. :)

    This may not happen for a LONG time. Do to the complexity of the many components of Chrome (many being native to Windows).

    For those that have a Mac or Linux box: CrossOver Chromium.

    As to the point of why Google can't just put out a version of Chromium for Mac and Linux at this point I've stolen this post:

    means they lack the coding ability or there is no profit in it for them

    They are working on it. Just happens that enemy #1 (IE) is on Windows. ;)

    I was really waiting for Google Chrome to come out of beta, thanks for that post Johnny (I've upped your rep, but I guess I need more posts before it shows up). Is it just me or is this the only Google product out of beta? I always tend to associate all of Google's products with beta, but this is the first time I'm seeing a non-beta. :)

    Beta seem to be the moniker for all software these days. At least it doesn't all say alpha.
