Google Says Chrome Is Ready For Roll Out To Business [chrome.blogspot.com]
Today, we’re announcing that Chrome offers controls that enable IT administrators to easily configure and deploy the browser on Windows, Mac, and Linux according to their business requirements. We’ve created an MSI installer that enables businesses who use standard deployment tools to install Chrome for all their managed users. We’ve also added support for managed group policy with a list of policies and a set of templates that allow administrators to easily customize browser settings to manage security and privacy.

They may be ready to roll it out, but so many businesses are all Microsoft that it's going to be a tough nut to crack. Besides, I am not sure that Admins are really ready to totally support Chrome on a large scale.

No, Chrome is not ready for business. It still caches like mad and still does not have the ability to remove headers and footers and adjust margins. Basic business functions like this are what is needed.

There is a new bug in version 8 I ran headfirst into.

When you either link to or render a PDF screen, Chrome does not display the Adobe Acrobat tool bars! To save the PDF you have to right click and save as.... If the page is an ASP page, you have to right click, choose All Files, and rename the file to something.pdf.

A nuisance.

Chrome now displays PDFs natively, not with the Acrobat plugin. This is not a bug - and it would be good if other browsers did the same.

So how could you get the Acrobat tool bars to show? There is so much that those bars provide other than zoom.

And it is a nuisance to save the PDF if it is rendered via ASP/PHP/.NET page. The general public won't get it, which includes most general office workers.

Another mistake, if it's not a bug, by Google. And when can we remove headers/footers?

[google.com...]

Disable the PDF viewer
To disable the built-in viewer, enter about:plugins in the address bar and click Disable underneath the entry for “Chrome PDF Viewer.” The Adobe Reader plug-in will automatically be enabled, if you have it installed.
