    I like it so far. Feels much faster than Firefox or Safari. I switched to Safari from Firefox for speed reasons and Chrome is fastest yet. Both Safari and Firefox have a minor rendering issue on my company's CRM (can't use the compact form, have to use full form to enter email addresses).

    yeah been running it since this evening - it's definitely fast and the extensions (when they arrive) will be nice. It's going to take a lot to pull me away from Safari though.

    I was using Chromium a few days before the official beta got released. I like it a lot, much smoother than Firefox, also opens much quicker. Just hope the OS X version gets extensions soon :hs:

    Previously used Firefox

    I like that it opens as fast if not faster than safari, and is just as fast browsing if not faster. I will definitely give it a run. I always used it on windows so I don't see why I wouldn't like it.

    Been using it for about a month now. I prefer Safari/Firefox but Chrome is much, much more stable, and it's just now in beta.

    sadly enough, linux and windows can run extentions, mac, not yet...
    but i have found that chrome beta is more stable than chromium on the mac... i can live without extentions for a bit... i have some adblock at the router level so that helps in the mean time...

    chromium has been working flawless for me on os x. I got mouse gestures, adblock and unlinker set up and I haven't had any troubles. so far, it has been far faster in all aspects (startup, browser operations and page load times) than safari or firefox was.

    I'm starting to have problems with it. Some sites just load really slow and then don't completely load in Chrome, but they load fine in Firefox.

    I've been using it for a couple weeks and it has been pretty awesome. I was a die-hard FF user, but it just got to be so slow. And for some reason out of the blue it started crashing all the time on my home computer.

    One bug in Chrome is when I log into a site and it asks me every time if I want to save the password. I click "Don't ask again" but it does every time. Very annoying.
