Last night Google released an update for Chrome that featured a new bookmarking manager. The same bookmarking manger was released a few weeks ago to the developer version of Chrome. While Chrome’s new bookmarking manager is a huge improvement over their previous release, I’m in agreement with Lifehacker that it is still second fiddle to Firefox 3’s bookmarking tool. Chrome’s bookmarking manager still lacks the use of tags and smart folders. To update Chrome to the latest build, select “About Google Chrome” in the settings drop down menu, and click on the update button.
In addition to the bookmarking update, ExtremeTech crowned Chrome the speed king of the major web browsers. Competing against Firefox, Opera, IE7 and Safari, Chrome stood far ahead of the rest in ExtremeTech’s scoring algorithm (with Firefox finishing in second ahead of Opera).
Until Chrome supports the plugins I’m accustomed to, it isn’t practical for me to make the switch regardless of how fast Chrome is. However, I’ve always found that Google products run exceptionally faster in Chrome, and as a result, I find myself using it frequently. How often do you find yourself using Chrome? Has Chrome become your default browser?
