Google Chrome for Mac

I’ve been getting rather fed up with Firefox and how sluggishly it responds these days, and having discovered that Google Chrome is already available for the Mac (albeit only as a developer pre-release version), I decided to give it a spin. I was pretty amazed by the mind-blowing speed (possibly faster than Safari on the Mac), but unfortunately some pretty basic features such as the bookmark manager and QuickTime integration aren’t working yet. I’m actually looking forward to the built-in dictionary.app integration (which allows instant lookup of words with a keyboard shortcut), but that isn’t quite working yet (apparently it works in the location bar – not the most helpful of places).

I guess what they said was right after all. “…please DON’T DOWNLOAD THEM! Unless of course you are a developer or take great pleasure in incomplete, unpredictable, and potentially crashing software.” Still, I’m pretty excited about it, and might possibly be making it my primary browser once a stable (or even beta) version emerges…
