Google Chrome fixes these boards

Wow.  

 

Google just released the latest version of the Chrome browser, and it REALLY makes a big difference on these boards.  

 

Boy it is FAST.

 

I like Chrome for these boards because it ignores the stupid Lithium Spell checker disabling and does on the fly spell checking.

Re: Google Chrome fixes these boards

I've been using the Beta for quite a while now and have noticed the same thing.

Chrome has basically been spanking the crap out of everything since it came out. The only thing I really miss from Firefox was the Adblock/NoScript combo, there's no good alternatives for any other browsers at the moment.

Re: Google Chrome fixes these boards

Yeah, I like Chrome, too.  Unfortunately, it still doesn't accommodate my Norton toolbar, though.  Guess I'll have to stick with Firefox for a while longer.  At least it's not iExplorer. :smileysad:

Re: Google Chrome fixes these boards

Thanks icebke!  

 

I just downloaded Chrome and the speed is amazing.  Before, it felt like I was using dial up and the page load time on this board was excruciatingly slow.  Not anymore!  Goodbye IE8.

 

Thanks again for posting.

Re: Google Chrome fixes these boards

I had been thinking about downloading Chrome for awhile, this thread convinced me and yes, you are all correct, it is very, very fast!  Thanks!

Re: Google Chrome fixes these boards

I've used Chrome since it came out, so I've never noticed any speed increase on these forums.  Guess I got spoiled from how fast it is without even knowing it.

The above is based upon my opinion... yours may vary!

Well unless you were using the Unstable version you should have seen a big speed improvement on Tuesday when Google released 5.0.375.  That is when the major speed boost went public (non-beta).

 

I've been using Chrome since the Pleistocene as well, and it has always beat Firefox, which in turn always beat MSIE, but this latest release makes a huge difference on these boards (which are laggy).

 

Linux and Mac versions are also newly updated.  Scores perfect on Acid3 as well.

Re: Google Chrome fixes these boards

That's interesting.  My beta version is 5.0.375.55 as well.  Has the release version caught up to the beta now?
