There’s been what I would describe as “mass press overload” on Google Chrome since it’s release a day or 2 ago (depending on time zones). So I thought I’d join in And yes – I’m currently posting this from Chrome, running on Windows Vista.
Unfortunately, I can’t try it out on Ubuntu just yet, as there’s no Linux builds, and trying to build it from source won’t work, many have tried. People were hopeful that it would run in wine…No dice. So we’ll just have to wait. Until then, I can continue merging and moving threads about on the forums. Which have been literally inundated with threads regarding the browser, so there is now a “Google Chrome MegaThread” :p
I have to say, I actually quite like it…now that the EULA has been revised that is. And it renders very quickly (Yes – faster than Safari, which according to Apple is “the fastest, easiest-to-use web browser in the world” – perhaps they should rethink that statement?).
As this blog seems to be getting a lot of hits still concerning Acid3, I tried Google Chrome from the same acid test website. And it gets….78/100! I think that’s pretty respectable, though it fails the LinkTest (screenshot supplied below).
Anyway – more on this later, possibly when there’s major improvements or a Linux version
Update: I forgot to add the screenshot of the Acid test, here it is!
