Since I spend most days in front of a computer screen, I am an early adapter to things online. So when I heard about Google Chrome launching yesterday, I downloaded it in the afternoon. I also uninstalled it two hours later.
It’s not that it isn’t good. It has plenty of merits. It’s a very simple screen format, although it took me some time to figure out where to locate my imported bookmarked sites. That part wasn’t as intuitive.
It wasn’t until I clicked on my e-mail marketing supplier’s Web site that it gave me problems. Like most new technologies, it takes time to become fully compatible with other programs. My e-newsletter software could not recognize it, and so, I had to revert back to my old IE7 to do my marketing homework.
That doesn’t mean I won’t give it another try. I heard a Google spokesperson interviewed on NPR radio yesterday and it sounds like this is the first browser entering the world of new media. I applaud their efforts.
Has anyone else tried it yet? What’s been your experience?
