What makes Chrome looks cool?
Maybe of the speed of browsing.
I can see some people are very satisfied with the browsing speed, while they used IE/Mozilla previously.
But for me, the speed is still normal, because I’m a Safari user.
According to my source, Safari’s Java loading is still faster than Chrome’s.
Unless you insisted to believe Google’s claim on Google’s software.
But I rather use 3rd party’s testing, and I believe the test’s results are vary according to the different types of scripts too.
And for the security part,
it will be very unfair for me to compare,
Because Chrome is still in beta stage,
And it is using Safari’s old version of WebKit, ver 525.13 for its search engine.
It has a lot of bugs which cause your security became vulnerable.
By the way, I love the simple design of Chrome.
But this is definitely not sufficient enough for some advanced users.
And for the memory usage monitor & management part,
Yes I believe it is not consuming much memory due to its simplification,
But, Pentium 4 is already a past tense right?
Wait for the Chrome to leave its beta stage and we’ll see again.
