Google Chrome by Default

posted by admin in browsers

Google Chrome has recently become my default browser.  When developing, Firefox still takes the cake due to my dependency on the Firebug plugin (though version 1.3 has been a little buggy), and various features of the handy Web Developer toolbar.

As for Chrome, I love its speed and ease of use, but I do have a few dislikes.  The (wheel) scroll amount is way too jumpy and there is no way to adjust it – I’ve been using the arrows on my keyboard a lot instead which is not ideal.  Also, it can be quite memory intensive, with each tab spawning its own process and consuming upwards of 35MBs.
