Chrome, is it a good option?

  1. I've been told by many people that Chrome is a fantastic browser, better and faster than Firefox.

    I searched the forum and found a few questions about it, but they are not that recent, so I decided to ask again. For those who use Chrome, is it compatible with WordPress? Will the dashboard, all the commands to build a post work the same way and be displayed the same?

    thanks...

    The blog I need help with is bewitchingkitchen.com.

    The browser preference really lies within what works best for you in the long run...

    Chrome does seem to be faster than Firefox but better would again fall under the preference category...

    To your above questions the answer is [Yes]

    Edit: Not one browser is safer than the other in aspect for the simple fact internet safety lies within practicing safe browsing habits for example such as be mindful to notice if the url is correct in the address bar before providing any credentials

  3. Picking up on what Slik has said those who do have their browsers set up to clear their cache and cookies when they close the browser are eliminating the information that "browser sniffers" are after. But it's important to not develop a slase sense odf security beacuse "private browsing" is not all that private after all. Stanford University conducted research to investigate the privacy of the "private browsing" feature on some web browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari). See here > Not so private browsing

  4. sorry "slase s" was meant to be "false"

  5. I use Chrome, and I love it! Definitely better than Firefox. Although Firefox has more apps. But i'm sure within time, Chrome will catch up.

  6. And answering your question...Wordpress works really well for me! Layout and Dashboard all works fine.

  7. Like Slik said, it all comes down to personal preference. I uninstalled Chrome and went back to Firefox.

  8. Well, you are all tipping the scale towards Chrome then.... I guess I love to try new stuff, and since no red flags were waved, I might go for it

    Thank you for all your input, as usual....

  9. Ooops, I misunderstood your last post, timethief - you UNINSTALLED Chrome and went back to Firefox... I guess that is a little red flag, after all...

    If switching back and forth between browsers is not too much of a hassle, I might give it a try

  10. If switching back and forth between browsers is not too much of a hassle, I might give it a try

    You could run both browsers on the computer at the same time that way you could get a feel for which one you like better that's what I did and still do at times all thought I chose Firefox because the customize option is greater at this point...

    Also you're welcome! for the advice... = )

    S^K

  11. Ha! I had no idea one could run both at the same time... am I naive or what?

    Great tip, thanks!

    For me it seems like Chrome works faster for things involving flash, so even though I use Firefox more often (like right now) I use Chrome whenever I use sites like Youtube or Netflick. I seem to have less trouble with Chrome than with Firefox, but like previous people have said Firefox has more apps so until Chrome comes out with some I'm sticking with Firefox for my main browser. I usually do a lot of things on the computer at once so I always have multiple browsers open (Firefox and Chrome) and Chrome is always faster.

  15. noone even mentioned IE, is it THAT bad? Its what I use. I couldnt stand mozilla ff.

  16. I use IE8 only when I help other bloggers. It's simply not as useful to me as Firefox and the add-ons for it are. IE7 has a few issues. But IE6 was such a probelematic browser that Miscrosoft abandoned it and instructed users that they ought to upgrade because they were no longer providing any support for it at all. IE9 is BETA and like all BETA browser it has issues.

  17. On top of all that Microsoft doesn't support XP with their newest browser IE9 so the people out there that chose to use XP or have no choice but to use XP right now because they can't afford to upgrade are forced to use IE8 which lacks some of the newest web features... Or they could switch to Firefox 4.0b10 or Chrome which offers the newest web compatibly standards...

    On my Harley maybe.

  19. Chrome has a lot of plugins automatically installed and updated than other browsers. It's faster too, and really good quality. =)

  20. I use chrome, I love it! :) but then again, not gonna lie, havent *really* tried firefox or other browsers....

    computer came with internet explorer, that sucks obv. so switched to chrome.

  21. Chrome's faster than most browsers. It loads WordPress nicely, too. The stats pop right up.

  22. I use IE at home. One main reason for me not to switch is that:

    IE is the corporate work-world choice for browser in medium to large organizations. IT dept. can't be bothered with multiple browser support issues when they have to support an organization's other enterprise-wisse software tools for employees.

    A large part of my jobs require employee training which integrates use of IE and other software, therefore it's just easier from the standpoint of memory/skills as a trainer to stick to IE. I have to know other software assist people how to conduct research, etc. so I don't need yet another lesser used browser for work-related purposes.

    So for work-related purposes, I need to always know IE's features and its interaction with other software to assist users.

    I used Firefox since it came out, but chrome took my breath away. Perfect for me, but I guess it comes down to what you prefer yourself.

  24. The comments miss the point. Does Chrome work with WordPress well? Whatever you think of Chrome (I like it a lot for its intelligent minimal layout and use it whenever possible, for speed and because bookmarks build up beautifully in folders on the bar without problems, and so reinforce its priority) it does not work well with WordPress in my recent experience, using 10.0.648.204 Anything with blockquote turns into a real mess, for example.

  25. Chrome is a very high quality browser. I have used it for over a year now and have noticed it is significantly faster than many of the other browsers out there. Yet another thing google has to take control of haha. I would recommend it, and most all of my friends would tell you the same.
