boring question...

Postby team47b » Wed Dec 12, 2012 19:54 pm

...Chrome, what's the point?

I can see the advantages for Google but what are the advantages for me/ what are the cool things that I can do wiv it that I can't do with Safari/ what am I missing?

Or is it just a shiny distraction?

You can polish chrome. You won't see blighty much anyway, 'cos it always seems to be covered in cloud.

Give me your exact geographical location Longitude, degrees minutes, seconds etc and lets see if your up to stuff with H in yer back yard this fine weather were not having.

Theres your problem - ditch the cat. :lol:

On my mac I get the opposite - safari is slower than chrome -which i wouldnt have thought given that its running on its native OS- firefox just crawls, but opera is fast too.

Chrome also has an icognito mode - you know for those pages you dont want anyone to know about.

You also have access to the chrome store - and teh autofill algorithms when using the search bar are good too.

Both have nice features though - bit like my testicles - which I often browse. :lol:

Interestingly its easy to build your own browser too - only a relatively few lines of code. You can even build your search engine - although its a bit more hassle the results you get from searches are often more random and closer to the earlier days of the interweb before most results become corporatised (is that a word) :lol:
