I have been using Internet Explorer as my source for Internet connections. Tonight I changed to Google Chrome, and am getting to like it. It even has a built in spell check, which is useful for dummies like myself. What do others think about Google Chrome? Anything I should be warned about?

I have been using Chrome for a few years. It a far superior to IE.

Can't really think of anything to warn about it is a very good browser.

That's good to hear. It is a bit of work transferring my saved sites and learning new buttons, but so far, so good.

Another reason for the change is the fact that IE would no longer allow YouTube, saying I needed an upgraded version of Adobe, but I in fact already had the latest version. It works fine in here.

Plus IE runs pretty heavy. Chrome is much lighter.

Seems that Microsoft just kind of does whatever with IE instead of making a good browser.

I have no idea what lighter versus heavier means in layman's terms, but I assume it's good!

Heavy - takes a lot of space (memory) up so it runs slower.

Light - The opposite of heavy.

Chrome is my browser of choice.

IE is like having sex with a hooker with out a rubber.

Firefox is like surfing the web in slow motion.

Google Chrome is like surfing the web in a tank that drive like an F-1 race car.

I don't use anything else to surf the web. Chrome is more stable, faster, uses less resources, more secure than IE, Firefox, Opera.

I got yelled at at work because I deleted firefox from my PC image and replaced it with chrome.

Some web sites that are built around IE don't display well but they are few and far between anymore.

The only use (sane) for IE is to download Windoze updates. I use Chrome too. I liked Firefox but it crashes too often.

Opera is fine if you need various languages but it once fit on a floppy but now it mini-IE.
