When the Mac version became available, it was a much more polished browser. Another theoretical selling point was that each tab ran as a separate process so one crashed tab would not crash the whole browser. I decided to give Chrome a serious work out on my Mac at home.
Things started out well enough and performance was good. I perused the help and learned some of the short cuts. After about three good weeks, something went wrong. I don't know if it was an update, a growing cache, or what, but it started slowing down. Then, it started having problems loading pages from web sites that worked fine in other browsers. It is possible that it even caused wireless network issues, though that is just speculation at the moment. I need to do some more research to see if the problems were related to Chrome.
For now, I am sticking with Firefox as my main browser on the Mac. I'll come back and try Chrome out after the next major release.
