I downloaded from here today. I have to say, it’s a very clean interface. It seems fast. Let me quick check the memory use with these 3 tabs open… One sec… BRB… Ok, sorry I’m back now. So I had to look because in Task Manager (WinXP SP3), it showed about 6 instances of chrome.exe running. I closed down the open tabs and saw the instances close. Then I closed the app and they all left. I was concerned at first, thinking that I had some hung instances. That wasn’t the case. Apparently, each tab is an instance and there’s a spare for good measure. I will have to look into this. I only heard of this browser a couple days ago.
So far, I am pretty impressed. It’s quick, clean and well, without doing the math, looks like it’s handling memory pretty well. Also not seeing a spell checker, which is a killer feature in FireFox. I can only assume future releases will prove useful. I think the separate instances is nice so if one part of the app breaks or crashes, it won’t pull the whole app down. I am excited to see how this progresses. I fully recommend you download it and give it a shot. Let me know what you find.
