The past few weeks I’ve been making a real effort to use Google’s Chrome broswer on all my computers. On my work laptop, which runs Windows, it has been a mostly pleasent experience. The browser is fast, responsive, and it seems to handle most sites that I visit quite well. I decided to install the Chrome on my home PC, which runs Linux (Ubuntu 9.04). The experience there has not been so great.
End result? I went back to using Firefox on Linux (even if it’s not 3.5 yet). It works without issue and can view all the websites I need to access on a near daily basis. I will continue to check out Chrome (and Chromium) on Linux to keep tabs on where things are at, but at the moment it seems that Firefox is the only truely, cross platform, mainstream browser on the market today.
