My eeepc and Google Chrome

This is a quick review of Google Chrome, the beta browser of the big G. I'm using it now as I'm typing this entry.

Initial impressions:

1. It feels snappy but it could be psychological.

2. The Google services work like a well oiled machine.

3. The rendering is fast even with initial zero cache use.

4. I have 6 tabs opened and only 26 MB of my eeePC's memory is used.

5. The zoom functionality only works for text. Firefox can zoom out the whole web page, which is crucial (but not a game breaker) for the small screen of the eeePC.

6. Every blank tab page has your most recent / most visited web pages all listed with screenshots.

7. Incognito mode or porn mode as we all know it can be activated anytime.

That's all for now. I am missing my Firefox extensions but not that much.
