    You might want to consider using Chromium instead. I switched over when my favorite Browser updates site was stopped (by Google) from posting the full update versions of Chrome.

    It's easier to use than Chrome. You download the Zip file, uncompress it to a folder (chrome-win32), and when done, copy that folder to the Program Files folder. Then, when a new update comes out (usually every 2 or 3 days), you repeat that process and Chromium gets updated -- leaving all of your bookmarks and settings intact in the process.
