    Last fall, I installed VMWare on my Macbook to run XP so I could run Microsoft Visual Studio for a Computer Programming class. Just recently I decided to boot VMWare up again for kicks. After downloading some updates I decided to try Google Chrome and I gotta say, it's really, really fast. I compared it to Safari on OS X and Chrome blows it away. I may have to run VMWare in unity mode and just use Chrome. It's that much faster.

    Anyone else using Chrome from a Windows partition? Just curious, I've only been doing a few hours so I haven't run into any problems at all besides not having my web history and such on the web browser.

    The last time I had looked, it wasn't available for Mac. That wasn't too long ago. I downloaded it (thanks for the link), but that is a developer version, so I wouldn't have been able to find it by other means most likely.
