Google, I like you, but I don't like you that much. No thanks on this one. Although it would be interesting to try . . . maybe on the school computer . . .

I gave Google the benefit of a doubt and downloaded it, I'm giving it a try, it is not complete by any standards...it seems to load pages a lot faster than IE7 or Firfox 3.0, but it still lacks very things like RSS feeds which are crucial to me.

trying it out so far, the flash is a little buggy but certain features are kinda of nice.

I will give it the benefit of the doubt since it's still in beta.


IE8 looks promising as well.

Be aware that not only are your browsing habits being recorded verbatim and catalogued by Google, but so are those interactions with your local system

Think of it as being pre-searched... if any authority needs to investigate you, they dont need to bother seizing your PC... just your Googlstry.
