I don't know of comparable stuff for IE.
    was probably 18 month ago at least that this happened - once bitten twice shy for me though! lol

    i think google has the the far better work than any other company did when starting its own versions like IE or FF i didnt like d IE as when i open many tabs than its sometimes promt me to close it instantly without saving dats and likewise happens with me..but with crome i used to get all the things going on very well and had not get any difficulties in using this..i can say that its best version till date we have...!!

    Its not bad for a first attempt! However as previously stated I also had real trouble with getting flash to install/work with it which ultimately meant it has been relegated to yet another browser to test sites on. Speed wise I think FF is faster although the electric might have been slow when i tested it.

    Time will tell if FF has enough momentum without google backing it to be around in the long term.

    Well, i personally agree that Google Chrome is VERY good for a beta, i love it and cant wait to see when it is released properly, i wrote a very long article on some of its features (XDnet.co.uk) and on the whole i like it is very good and when i look at the theory behind the tab structure and javascript engine it sounds amazing, but so far i have found that it seems to have an issue with flash video (youtube/iplayer) as it seems to lag and just be generally rubbish with it where as IE/FF is fine.

    But as i said for a beta it has alot of good points and i cant wait to see later releases and what the other browsers decide to take and use in their own browsers.

    They already did that when MS's head search programmer went to google. That was a few years back. Surprisingly, there is very little info on this on the net right now. Maybe Billy-boy paid google to remove any negative publicity. He's the only one I know that could afford that price tag.

    I am using IE8 RC1 now and the whole crash thing seems to have been resolved in this release. It renders pages a little differently but it has "compatibility" mode on it which does a pretty good job of making pages that render strangely return to the way IR7 rendered them.

    Other than that I don't see any noticeable bugs like 7 had and I've been running it for about a week or so.

    I also really like the new color coded tabbed browsing and the address bar now shows the exact domain one is looking at which should really help out less advanced web users to identify the actual domain they are visiting and should help prevent phishing quite a bit.
