Google Chrome

I just wanted to give a quick shout out to Google Chrome. It is a new browser by Google that I downloaded yesterday. Wow is it fast! I have been going between both Internet Explorer and Firefox on my new computer and they are both painfully slow. I have been blaming this on the fact that I never uninstalled bloatwear and haven't really spent a lot of time trying to figure out why it is slow and fix it. Sometimes, especially when loading pics for new listings in Etsy, I will get up and go do something for a few just to pass the time.

Google Chrome is not fancy and doesn't have a ton of special features. In fact, the default is a 3/4 screen but boy is this baby fast! When you open a new tab, the page if full of thumbnails of you most frequently visited pages. It imported my saved passwords from my other browsers and fills the fields in after the first letter, instead of the usual second letter entry. Easy peasy to use. Go to the official google blog for more info and to download. Leave a comment on your experience so far!

Jenni... I really like Chrome, even more today. I have three browsers, and now I am picking Chrome over IE and Firefox.

Thank you for your nice comment Piggy! I still have to clean the beads, that in itself can be a chore with the babies too!
