    my only dislike about the browser is that I can't reopen old tabs that I've closed very annoying, they stopped the crashing and the A/V problems I've experienced have quietly gone away. I hope they open it up so user can use third-party applets.

    Chrome is a blessing for my girlfriend's old 1.2Ghz laptop with its whopping 512Mb RAM. As all the other browsers get more and more memory hungry, something so streamlined and quick is awesome.

    I just hope they didnt rush this one just to prove that none of their apps are stuck at beta, its just reminds me too much of their android phone OS, that was riddled with weird problems

    This is good news, but I [and others like me] am still waiting for a Linux build. Hopefully now that it's in 1.0 it should come soon-ish.

    I wondered what it was doing earlier saying it needed to finish installing - obviously it had just updated itself.
    Good good, I am pleased that they think it is "finished" for now. Thanks for that shortcut iwog :)

    Great news. I've been using this on my EeePc instead of Firefox for a while now. Quite speedy already but I won't say no to 50% faster :D
