    I'm just glad its not crashing like v12. v12 was crashing so much I had to stop using it for a bit. :p So far so good though. Its running smooth :thumb:

    I still had a few crashes with the last few days of Beta 13, but yeah it was nothing like the pit of hell v12 was.

    V10 added a lot of crashes due to massive changes. Since then it's been pretty much cleanup. Still, there have been tons of improvements.

    If you're noticing lots of crashes try syncing and reinstalling.

    v13 stable is doing okay for me right now. Lately I've been bouncing back and forth between Chrome and FF, depending on the website I go to and who is using the system. Once Chrome 15 hits, I may use it 100% of the time again (this is supposedly when that API issue will finally be taken care of, and extensions can work properly).

    Seriously? I'd be very VERY surprised...

    Adblocking in chrome... proper adblocking... will never be a reality IMO.

    I'd love to see it though.

    Chrome 14 is very very fast. Firefox 8 is about equal to Chrome 14 from the articles I've read but Chrome still wins due to a few extra features like instant.

    Well, now this is only what I've read. The actual talk is located here: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=60101#c63. It was linked in AdBlockPlus forums from this post:https://adblockplus.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=8079.

    Whether it happens, I don't know. I don't see why it couldn't, unless Google really is that anal about security.

    Thanks so much for that.

    And the reason I don't think Google's been to keen on adblocking is because that's where 99.99% of their 10billion dollar revenue comes from.

    Well, yeah, true. I guess it depends on how vocal the anti-ad crowd is, and just what ads Google gets the most money from? I really know nothing about that part of their business. I'd say the extension could whitelist them..but I believe we both know how that would hold up, hehe.

    Google only gets money when ads are clicked. Therefor it doesn't matter whether ad requests are made or not.

    I suppose by that logic they may as well simply allow ads to be blocked because if you've got a blocker you're not clicking either way.

    Well, I doubt they need reminding, but it was malicious ads and overzealous tracking that even brought about a need for it. I personally think adblockers have crossed over from being just tools used for annoyances, to be pretty necessary tools for security. Of course that doesn't matter to those that only care about the bottom line.

    I wouldn't block ads at all if they were simple text based ads with no security issues. That's just too much to ask for =p

    Yeah, if ad agencies suddenly had to switch back to the 90s way of doing ads (well, for the most part), they'd all fall over and start twitching. Anyway, if you dig deeper into that Google link, it says v14 is to have this API fix as "experimental", stable coming in 15 or later.

    Sounds good. 3 weeks and Beta should hit 14.

    So far I am very impressed with Chrome 13 on my system it is easily the fastest of all the browsers, and Flash is working well which was not the case for me with Chrome 12.
    With its own sandbox implementation it should be of great interest to Wilder's members

    Yup. Speed, security, and stability are the three reasons I use Chrome.

    The one thing that Firefox has over chrome (for me) is that its UI is more customizable, but that really doesn't matter to me.

    And that is not enough for some people :D who seem to know exactly how much of a change is required for a change in major version.

    I'm getting tempted to give Chrome another try. (If anyone knows of an easy way to save youtube videos in Chrome do post in the extensions thread.)

    Yes, that's what I wanted. Looks good. Thanks :)

    In edit: installed Chrome for Linux and the script. Works as advertised. Thx again :)

    Will have to try this. Stayed away from Chrome for awhile due to crashing etc. Been using Firefox 5.

    Will give it a go today. Cheers!
