Google Chrome is not for me

March 25, 2009 at 4:13 am (Technology)

My dad said Google Chrome is fast, really really fast. I downloaded it today and installed in my work laptop.

10 minutes with Chrome browsing Slashdot, Techcrunch and a intranet site.

No, Chrome is not the one for me. My intranet site fails to render properly, its on SharePoint and maybe Google deliberately don’t want to render SharePoint portal pages correctly.

  • Zoom functionality sucks compared to IE8.
  • UI is little confusing without the change in tone/shade of colors used for the web-page space and the tool-bar space
  • Start time is much better than IE8 
  • Having more tabs open at the same time is confusing

I didn’t have the patience to keep trying longer, good bye chrome. Back to good old IE.
