Chrome for Mac

I'm just trying the new Beta version of Goggle Chrome for Mac.

It's very much a beta. For example there's no way of setting default fonts and text size. But one thing I must say: it's very fucking fast! Impressive. Including one of my standard sites, which on Safari for some odd reason takes like half a minute to load (the first page), in Chrome it is near-instant.

And from what I have seen so far with a trek through my most used sites, the rendering is really nice, pages look good and neat.

Not to rain on your parade, but benchmarks seem to show that Chrome is just slightly *slower* than Safari 4 ( I've been waiting for it on the Mac for a while, and started using it the day it was released. I subsequently quit using it. About 15 minutes later. :)

Really though, I expect they will add a lot to it, but as it is now it's totally unusable for me: so much about the entire browser is completely unconfigurable. Kinda weird even for a beta.
