    I don't know if this is really good news or really scary news. :eek:

    At least extensions auto-update with Chrome (unlike Iron).

    Good to see that Laforge chap has got a new job now that the Enterprise 'D' is no more. LOL :D

    I don't know, it could go either way. On one hand, it'll be nice to get features and even bug fixes much faster. On the other, will the rushing introduce more bugs, vulnerabilities and other oversights into the builds? I don't necessarily buy the "stress reducing" argument. I don't think anyone over at Mozilla, Microsoft, Apple and Opera is having such a hard time keeping up that workload needs to be reduced. In fact browser developers might have have LESS issues if they weren't in a rush to be the fastest according to some useless benchmark test and didn't try to rush out features that may or may not end up working right.

    Also, in my experience, adding new feature after feature usually eventually leads to the ruination of what was once a good piece of software... I hope they don't ruin Chrome, I like it fine as it is right now already...

    *Puts on his hard hat and fire-proof coat* I personally feel that is what happened to Opera.

    I used to use Opera a lot, in fact it was my default browser for a long time. I think it would be great (in fact the best) ... if only it worked properly. :(

    The opera I prefer these days are normally written by Puccini. ;)

    Now, there's a coincidence, I've just acquired a recording of Der fliegende Holländer.

    Der Ring des Nibelungen stays in my CD changer in my car (you should see the looks I get pulling into parking lots with those blaring, lol) Okay, back to Chrome cycles ;)

    Forget Chrome I don't trust Google.

    I wish we'd hear more going on for Chromium.
