I have been using it almost exclusively on my windows machine and it
runs fast and crash free so far. Chrome on windows seems to be much
faster then firefox, that said I do have a lot of plugins loaded on
firefox. IMO through the plugins is where firefox really shines there
are litterally thousands of plugins. Chrome will have a lot of work to
do in this department but Google has got the money. I just downloaded
it for linux and will be testing Chrome on my lappy with ubuntu 9.10
over the next few days.
