It no longer supports XP or Vista. Chrome installation is a snap, handled by first downloading a very small stub program that downloads the full browser. No reboot is required.

Chrome offers excellent tab implementation. The distinctive angle-edged tabs are prominent at the top of the browser window, and you can drag them out to the desktop to create independent windows.

After I installed an extension, a tooltip popped up showing its icon either in the address bar or as an added Menu button next to the default page and Wrench menu.

Both Chrome and Firefox let you sync bookmarks, history, and so on, not only to other desktop instances of the browser, but also to Android and iOS versions.And that while only 77% of them trust reviews on brand websites, a whopping 97% of them trust anonymous reviews.
