Google Chrome for Linux (BETA)

8 posts in this topic

Has anybody noticed all those ads for the beta version of Google Chrome for Linux? Hell, it was about time. I don't know why Google chose to first release Chrome for Windows only and then wait so long before releasing it for Linux. In any case, I'm using it right now and it appears to be pretty good just like the Windows version. Even though it's still a beta it appears to be quite stable.

Google Chrome for Linux

They're providing packages for Debian/Ubuntu and Fedora/OpenSUSE in both 32 and 64-bit versions.

Glad to hear this.

I've not really used Chrome yet, and FFox in Linux often displays pages horribly,

I hope Chrome does better. I might use my Ubuntu more often.

i'm using it right now and everything seems alright. i've only had one strange crash so far, but everything else is stable.

8 tabs open, and chrome itself is only using about 203.9 MB of ram. I just wish it had addon support like firefox does.

I was excited about Chrome for the longest time. Then I started using it. Don't get me wrong any new addition of technology is just great. Yes it is faster on websites that use a lot of Javascript, yes I love the aesthetic but it has a ton of incompatibilities. For instance, if I log onto my blackboard for school I have limited functionability when it comes to posting and things. Also, even on this site, a lot of times when you surf the web and check out forums and things the graphics for emoticons and other stuff is missing or messed up. I also don't like its bookmarking system, it seems like it takes longer to use bookmarks. I'm too used to the drop down menu...and yes, it is a crime but I dare say I like Explorer's bookmarking system the best...but you didn't here that from me.

never used chrome probably never will. i mean why use chrome if firefox+ubiquity makes all the google "programs" work together better then if your actually using google programs.(never heard anything good about chromium linking google/gmail and w.e. together easily)

Good point. I use ubiquity/firefox too. Nice setup. But we haven't seen everything Google has planned right now. Have you seen Chromium, their new OP? It comes with default apps that connect to their cloud so I think Google is ready to go and make sure that the browser/Google experience is super smooth and leet, at least in their world, "cloud."
