Google Chrome- Reactions?

Google recently released a beta of its web browser Chrome, and I like it. The look is nice, its fast and the developer tools associated with it is already impressive. Anyone else have thoughts on it? I think if 3rd party apps for it are built it could give Firefox a run for its users.

First impression: Where's the 'home' button?
Second impression: If I actually have to LOOK for the home button then it isn't worth keeping.
Verdict: Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs... you know the rest.

I saw the link for this.. and was about to download it.. but the sudden rush I got from reading the link dissipated in about 12 milliseconds after I saw the screenshots. Eh.. maybe I'll try it sometime later.

Tried it and removed it..
Maybe once they add some skins / apps itll be worth using.
Sticking to firefox for now. :P

I like it a little. It's quick and sharp. Yes, a couple of skins would be cool, but it's still in beta. Give them a chance. And you can just click the 'show home button in toolbar' to get that to show up. ;)

Did anyone see the original EULA when it was released. Quite a good article about it here, even though its been resolved now:

Yea the original EULA was really screwed!
Google had the right to see everything that I saw.. Idiotic!

But I must say that I like Chrome. It is fast and it is fast.
The best thing is that I don't think of the browser. That is my number 1 criteria for a good browser.

EDIT: How damn hard can it be to spell EULA? :cry:
