    It might have more features than IE, but I doubt it has more features than Firefox or Opera.

    I don't dislike any of the browsers, but what i do like about Chrome is;

    1) it's app tab
    it is like a desktop, I have my favorite apps right there, I don't have search in my alreadied cluttered bookmarks bar

    2) I also love, love, love using my Google voice search
    Firefox started a project for voice, but abandoned it, I also find Windows voice program not very forgiving. It never could understand me, and I don't even have an accent, though some U.S southerns say I sound like a @#% yankee.

    3) I also, like Chromes theme's
    I make my own, though they have some great ones. IE doesn't believe in themes.

    these are the things I like most, but it does have it's drawback's, and it is why I use all 3 browsers.
    PLUS, I am from Portland, Oregon and it appears Google may be bringing their hi-speed optics internet to my beloved city, so I guess I am just a little biased.

    It' just a personal preference thing.

    Hi there
    for sure it's a personal thing

    but consider the use of this in a professional working environment -- voice activated searches would just be plain ridiculous in a typical open plan office type area !!!!.

    The chrome book wasn't actually a bad idea in itself -- no OS for the user to "break" or pirate or apps even to update -- google office apps I believe can run OK if you don't need the full complexities of Ms office.

    Whether there is a place for this now is moot point since most phones / tablets will supply better functionality at almost every stage.
