    I just did a side by side with FF, and it looks like Chrome is gonna be a hit.

    I just figured out how to set up all my favorites across the top of the browser window, just like I had them in Firefox.

    Hotmail and MSN pages have been working good for me so far.

    I got MSN working. But, no Hotmail. I get the page that says I need to upgrade my browser.

    It looks rather nice. Hopoefully roboform will add support soon - I can't really browse without that now.

    There is a link on the Hotmail page that will let you bypass the upgrade.
    EDIT : The paragraph that states "If you don't want to upgrade" contains the link to "continue to Windows Live Hotmail".Click on that link and it should let you go to Hotmail.

    Now put it back in the tabs in the original browser.

    I love this.

    Yep, noticed that too.

    WOW! This sucker is FAST.

    I also like the way it highlights the name of the domain you are visiting.

    I also like how (once I figured out how to set up all my bookmarks just like FF) I can just grab that bookmark and fling it up to where the tabs are (on the top), and it opens like I would want it to.

    Try closing the browser and reopening again.
