This is another of my browser quick evaluations.
This time, I’m evaluating Google Chrome, to see if its a suitable candidate in my quest to replace Maxthon as my default browser.
Since Chrome and Safari are closely related, I suspect that Chrome will end up like Safari, and will be dropped from my list.
First up: border width. I must say that the border width is thicker than Safari. But a quick change in screen resolution reveals the truth… Chrome does have a thicker border than Safari, but like its cousin, its a fixed width that is independent of the thickness set in the windows display preferences. For me, that’s a no-no.
I can see that it also lacks any way of customising the look and locations of “toolbars”… in fact I cant see any way of customising Chrome.
Again, I just can’t see myself (as a browser power user) using Chrome for any length of time.
