Unlike other modern web browsers, which can only run one process at a time, Google Chrome will give each tab its own process. This speeds up overall performance and saves the entire browser from crashing when one tab causes problems.
The multi-process design requires more memory allocation up front but less memory over time as users tend to multitask. It also prevents your computer from slowing down after you browse for an extended period of time and open/close lots of tabs.

Among other things they say under item 11:
By submitting, posting or displaying the content you give Google a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services.
Item 11.2 say:
You agree that this license includes a right for Google to make such Content available to other companies, organizations or individuals with whom Google has relationships for the provision of syndicated services, and to use such Content in connection with the provision of those services.
Why should a serious company like Google have such demand.
Until this morning, when I opened FF - "FF is not your default browser", it whimpered; "Do you want to make FF your default browser?"
"No", was my firm reply "Don't Ask Me Again".
Of course I might go back; you can bet that FF will see GCr as a challenge, and I hope they rise to it. But I didn't want him to get his hopes up.
Then I realised that the last few days have seen several rumblings about the new IE - which is now, of course, utterly obsolete; a previous generation of browsers.
Methinks they may need to postpone that, while they hire a few 21st century thinkers. Say whay you like about GCr; clunky it ain't. Even if one experimental IE on one laptop did a quicker youtube! ;)

It's extremely important (at least for me) that Chrome be able to display JAVA content
Thanks tp phpmaven, who posted this earlier in the thread:
If you search the help page you will be directed to a Sun page where you can download a version of Java that works fine with Chrome
Tested and working fine here (I also notice that Chrome claims Silverlight support).
For me, that is the number one feature I use Firefox for, and hence it is the reason I am not using Chrome. I wish this worked better, because I like Chrome in most other ways.
I'm surprised at the lack of enthusiasm to talk about what you observed in your recent posts, particularly on privacy, borg-assimilation tendencies and phoning home. If I didn't know better I'd say Google paid most of the posters in this thread
there's really only so many times you can usefully hold that discussion; if you believe this is all a plot to get your secret clicking patterns to a cave under Mountain View, nothing said here will shake that view, will it?
This thread is discussing Chrome; it's no more or less evil than everything else Google does, so all the previous "Google Ate My Cat" threads (count 'em!), still pertain. Unless you know different?
"Aside from that, Mrs Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?" :)

I downloaded it twice, but the one silverlight dependent site that I visit still tells me 'download silverlight'
Thanks Quadrille, I had the same experience with every Silverlight page that came up in a search.
I then tried the same thing in IE7... and got the same result!
So no criticism of Chrome on that front.
We like it already! One day of beta should be enough based on history. Let's get it fueled up and ready for flight. I'm tired of sitting on the runway. Us Webmasters have a short attention span and you got us for the last 24 hours. What are you going to do for the next 24? :)
Feed Me Seyour, Feed Me!
I'm ready to be fully assimilated TODAY!
No click drag new tab without dropping way at top in bar? grrrr. Super drag and drop will STILL be the TRUMP CARD for Maxthon for me. Freakin you'd think FF and google would caught on to that for now.
Tab Mix Plus for Firefox [addons.mozilla.org] - only way to do tabs right.

the pain point for the boss to be able to come o'er and just open a new instance to see what's been up behind his back .. not for me though .. I am the boss myself topping up 90+ team .. just thinking aloud :)
Astute Reg readers have pointed out a Chrome condition of service that effectively lets Google use any of your copyrighted material posted to the web via Chrome without paying you a cent.
