    So far I'm liking it, for BYC but for some of the other websites I frequent, it doesn't have the plugins..

    It seems faster than Firefox, IE or Safari.

    Does it have tabbed browsing?

    I can't survive without tabbed browsing... [​IMG]

    What about an Adblock? Firefox's Adblock plugin works great. Pages load faster because I'm not waiting for a bunch of ridiculous ads to load.

    (I hate IE, love Firefox, and don't mind Safari... I have an iBook G4).

    Google chrome TOS says in laymans terms if you submit something through google chrome we have the right to do WHATEVER we want with it without paying you (the submitter)

    Yes, Google Chrome does have tabbed browsing, though at this point it does not have AdBlock [​IMG]

    And Google has clarified the TOS in re: submitted information and, as expected, it is nowhere near as bad as the flash FUD coming out from certain camps.

    My husband loves Opera Mini for his phone... Is Opera a decent browser for the computer, too?

    Quote:I never liked tabbed browsing and never could see why people like it? I've just used "Alt+Tab" for my 'tabbed' browsing. Haven't tried Chrome yet but probably will soon.
