I downloaded Google Chrome and installed it on Windows Vista Ultimate last night, and here I some things I really liked about the new browser:
- The preferences window is super-clean, super-easy to follow. Overall, it's a very good implementation.
- Gmail is sufficiently faster (for obvious reasons)
- There is no status bar, but when you hover over a link it appears in a little unintrusive blue pop-up at the bottom.
- It's really interesting how Chrome marks download progress - instead of using a horizontal bar, they use a sliced circle. It's really interesting. Oh, and there's no download window - the progress is kept at the bottom, but you can open a download tab if needed.
