First Google Chrome Screenshots

September 3rd, 2008

Google Chrome is new (still in beta) and I went a head and installed it on one of our VMs. It seems like a lot of the functionality from the popular Firefox extension ‘FireBug’ is built in. Here are the screen shots:

    I can’t use Chrome at work because of the info that appears in the new tabs. Even though the frequently visited websites are visited before I start work, during lunch and after I clock out, there they are for all to see. It would create a potentially embarrassing situation if ALL of the most visited sites were not work related.

    Even worse… Most of my most frequently visited websites revolve around politics and religion. I have extreme views on both subjects and I try my best to keep that sort of thing private.

    I know that I can open a new “incognito” window but then all the cookies get erased and it’s a pain to log into everything, every time, etc…

    It would be my very strong preference to disable the personal info presented on the new tabs. The personal info display makes Chrome more of a professional hazard than anything.

    I like the auto-generation of frequently visited websites. I had previously used the “Fast Click” FF plugin. I like some of google chrome’s functionality, but the fact that it’s built on Safari’s engine (web kit) turns me off. It’s not as compatible with Windows type applications (i.e. Google toolbar is not supported yet!)

    My suggestion for Dave is to use a different browser (IE/FF/etc) for personal browsing and Chrome for work related applications if you still would like to use it.

    For now I’m sticking with FF, especially for the web development applications.
