    Hello.
    After downloading Google Chrome browser, I was a little skeptical about it.My first thought was, how about privacy?

    There are so many different stories, opinions and views on a subject of Google tracking our internet behaviour. Internet sites are trying to get as much information about our web browsing, computer info and so on.

    Main reason for this kind of paranoia are different maliciously software, spyware, greyware and computer viruses.

    First impression: Google Chrome is simple, it does not bother us with too much options. Reading about how it works reveal to us that every tab is separated browser. That's way tabs are above address bar. Working with tabs is simple. It's fast and in general simple to use. Yust be careful when closing a browser, it close without asking what to do with open tabs.

    Privacy: First I was looking for a way to disable suggestion of web addresses. I must say that it can be an useful tool, but I just wonted this functionality to be turned off.
    It's easy done, by disabling the option in Tools/Options/Basic/ default search: Manage; Unchecked the options: »Use a suggestion....«

    How about clean browsing without a trace on a computer: It is also there under Page icon's menu: New incognito window with short cut Ctrl+Shift+N. Browsing on the Internet in this window does not leave any trace , no history, no cookies and no temporary files. It's all deleted when Incognito window is closed.

    Conclusion: In my opinion this is a good alternative to most well known browsers. Because of it's simplicity I'm probably going to use this browser together with other available browsers. If I'm going to like it or not is going to be shown after using it for a while. Then I'm going to write another opinion about this subject.

    Much quicker than firefox here on ubuntu. Have been using as my main browser for a month or so and havent had any issues. If you are missing Ad Blocker Pro then try AdThwart for Chrome seems to work ok.
