Sweet...Just got to work though, & all the computers here are PC's. :? Can't wait to check it out later. Been waiting for awhile now for them to release it. I just checked on it like a week ago---Thanks for the heads up!

It's been out for Macs at least half a year -> http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=114561

...but it was unstable as hell back then. Better now? Can you get stuff like adblock & noscript for it?

I heard it was out in beta. I'd like to try it as well, but I've been pretty satisfied with safari lately.

I tend to agree...curious as to what Chrome offers over Safari though - apart from a tighter intergration with everything Google?

using the address bar as a search bar for me does it. it automatically picks up your searches as you type. its super quick, very clutter free. other than that it is just a browser, but i definitely think it is my fav over internet explorer, opera, safari and firefox.

thanks for posting this.. i've never used chrome, mainly firefox and after a few minutes or so browsing using chrome, I am switching.. might I add they have a Tiesto theme for Chrome.. sounds like a joke but it's not..

Chrome may be fast, but it ups Google's spyware behavior by monitoring everything you type into the address bar, not just into a google search field. If speed is what you desire, I suggest Opera.

Nah my friend. Alex is first and foremost a proud Ableton fan boy - who can blame him?
