Blogging from Google Chrome [impressions]

Initial thoughts on Google Chrome (more to follow tonight):

  • This browser is really pretty.
  • They’ve done an excellent job maximizing viewing space, with ultrathin borders. Your tabs are actually rendered in the titlebar, saving even more space.
  • Speaking of which, why has no one thought of inverting the tabs and address bar before? This is genius, and makes perfect sense.
  • Renders fast, as can be expected with WebKit.
  • Did I mention that this is really pretty? Make Google Mail/Apps look like this!
  • Awesome-Omni-bar is great, but the auto searchbar detection failed at detecting Wikipedia’s search box. Amazon.com worked great, though.
  • Interesting that Google is using Windows font rendering, seeing as how Apple’s Windows WebKit implementation (Safari) uses Apple font rendering. I’d prefer Apple, but this is fine.
  • Resizable textareas is a built-in feature.
  • Damn, this is pretty!
  • Have yet to run into any of the background technical things that is supposed to make Chrome shine (tabs hanging, memory leaks, popups, etc), but so far a good experience.

Looking forward to plugin support so I can mess with tab opening/closing behavior. So far, a great entry into the market, even if I still think we already have too many browsers. Maybe we should just kill Opera and replace it with this?

    All rooms attribute fully equipped kitchens, finish with a full-sized fridge,
    microwave, four burner stove, all vital cookware and utensils,
    and an attractive dining table with four chairs.
    The chocolate fondue is produced at your table much like the
    cheese fondue was.

    To actually get the attention of the viewer there is no harm in making the video a bit
    controversial as it will ultimately be highly beneficial
    later on. Your readers are hanging out on Facebook, Twitter, Linked – In,
    Youtube and other places online. For your videos, you will want normal shots and steady panning.

    These away from support look unprofessional and also careless while
    doing so. Your hands will get dirty, and you should
    be alright with this actuality. For most of the drain
    clogging problem, plumbers use drain snake or auger.

    If you have hired someone to repair plumbing in your home
    or business, you may want to ask them how they clean up at the end
    of the day. I made a rookie mistake of not recognizing that something else could be causing this reoccurring leak.

    Dripping sinks or showers can be fixed with ease without much trouble, but leaking from the pipelines or the fixtures can result in the stripping of
    the walls and floor surfaces.
