Google Chrome

Since 1993 I have used a lot of internet browers Compuserve, Netscape, Mozilla, Opera, IE, Safari and now Firefox to name the main ones.  So when Google bought out Chrome I was a bit ‘meh’ about it, hubby used it and raved about it but I couldn’t be bothered to move over. He hadn’t seen the state of my bookmarks, and the thought of trying to order them into actual categories has seemed like too much effort.

But then yesterday in my e-mail was the only useful press release I have ever received telling me that Google has asked lots of designers to make ‘skins’ for Chrome.

There are lots of other designers there including Donna Karen and Matthew Williamson.

As you know I’m easily swayed by pretties on my laptop, so tonight I’m downloading Chrome and giving it a go as I’ve just gotten an invite to Google Wave as well it seems like time to try something new. It can’t be worse than Internet Explorer and it might be better than Firefox, so I’ll keep you posted.

  1. They are lovely. I’m so glad you bring us this stuff, would never know about it otherwise. Have seen Google wave mentioned elsewhere but have no idea what it is.

  2. As you know, I’m no explorer fan but… I don’t know. I keep getting this nagging feeling google are about to take over the entire universe!

  3. I was using the Chrome before my laptop imploded. As yet I have not got round to returning. I thought it was a good set up, but its incompatibility with some programs and plug-ins made it irritating. Having to use a different browser for specific things.
