Google Releases Chrome Browser for Mac OS

For a few months now I've been using the Google Chrome browser on my Windows machines. I've found it to be efficient and pretty stable. In the Windows world I very rarely use Internet Explorer any more. It's hard to believe that about 10 years ago, IE put Netscape under with it's amazing forward thinking and development.

So, getting back to Chrome, I use it and Firefox on the Windows machine and really haven't found either to be a bad choice. Firefox has been around longer and has lots of add-ons, but Google continues to evolve the Chrome software.

I was happy to see that Google has finally released Google Chrome for the Mac OS. I've never been a big fan of Safari much to the chagrin of my Macophile buddies. So it's been a Firefox world on the Mac for me. However, the lastest update seems to have made Firefox a little less stable for me than in the past.

I installed Chrome on the Mac last night and am making this blog post using it. So far so good. I understand that Google wants to make sure the Windows world is happy since they have a huge market share compared to Mac, but I wish they could have gotten this out earlier.

The interface is clean, slick, and things load quickly. It imported all my Firefox settings so it hasn't really been much of a change at all. After a few weeks I'll report back on my experience.
