For those who have it installed, are you able to move your bookmarks from another browser to it?
Yes, from Firefox.

So no need for Ashweb to scan it and slow things down! ::)
WebShield is working perfectly. No need to change anything into avast4.ini file.

Yes but is the web shield actually scanning the content, check the detailed view, last scanned and scanned total fields ?

If not you would need to edit the avast4.ini and add the OptinProcess line.

[WebScanner]
OptinProcess=executableFileName.exe
David, can you be more specific? What is exactly the text to copy/paste? :P

I though I had been quite specific but made some assumptions that the information would be enough for you.

Which is why I said"check the detailed view, last scanned and scanned total fields," if it is you obviously don't have to do anything. Which appears to be the case, assuming you didn't change the browser to use the proxy (which is effectively the same as editing the avast4.ini).

Chrome’s interface has some bold changes from the standard browser design. These new features enhance the Web experience, but they will require some adjustment on the part of users. For instance, Chrome does away with most menus and toolbar icons to give maximum screen space for the Web pages themselves. Also, Google has merged the address bar, where you type in Web addresses, with the search box, where you type in search terms. This unified feature is called the Omnibox.

But I must admit... it's very very fast...
Hope it works. Hard to tell if FF is really faster than chrome or vice-versa 8)
Speed wise, there isn't any comparison. Chrome runs circles around Firefox in the speed department.

Did anyone notice that its based on WebKit (Safari's rendering engine) :P?

The report says the new Chrome browser will combine Apple's Webkit, Google's Gears, and a new JavaScript virtual machine called V8, intended to dramatically speed up the performance of JavaScript code, particularly the code used in building significant web apps. The document outlines that Google's Chrome team selected Webkit for the same reason Android developers did: it's fast, simple, uses memory efficiently, and "it was easy for new browser developers to learn to make the code base work."


And im sure the fact that Google's CEO is on Apple's Board of directors didn't hurt either ;)

There is an option to show Home button and it's not even hidden. Options / Basics / Home page section



This browser rules. So fast, so reliable I'm loving it. Little quirks will be ironed out once this amazing browser goes gold.

Reading some early reviews on the net, it does seem to do quite a lot of things "automatically."  I like tweaking software as well as hardware, so, if Google thinks Firefox is way too far customizable for their intention, then, it simply means their needs and my needs don't meet each other.

Seeing the name "Chrome" makes me think of a Firefox component. I'll be sticking to Firefox.
