I take it all back. After a bit of computer housekeeping, Chrome now works as expected with my AOL account. I haven't had a chance to check its functionality with eBay feedback but suspect this problem has also been sorted. It seems a lot faster than Firefox on my netbook. Apologies, Google.

Just checked out Iron, as suggested by layingback and can say it's fast!

Not sure if I'll keep it, but if the latest version of Firefox gets any slower...

I was on FireFox v3.6 checked for updates and Lo, I'm scooting along on v6.something now. Seems fine and it looks ever so much like Chrome.

Well the most rational reason for using Chrome is that it is fast. Iron is Chrome recompiled without all the call-home stuff, so it has to be faster - if not significantly, it must reduce the unexpected occasional contention delays due to traffic.

Of course if you are more comfortable knowing that dear ol' uncle Goog is watching over your every move - go ahead and Chrome

Chrome is not Chromium
Chromium is an open-source browser where Chrome and also Iron is based on.
So i'm curious what Iron offers over Chromium.

I don't know Stefan, I may have a look at Chromium and see for myself.

One thing niether have is the codde that reports back to Google allowing them to target you with adds.

It's a bit hard to find the software to download.
This the latest windows build http://build.chromium.org/f/chromium/snapshots/Win_Webkit_Latest/3819/mini_insta...

They have around 6 updates a day almost so it's a bit hard to keep track.
But here is the site for windows http://build.chromium.org/f/chromium/snapshots/Win_Webkit_Latest/
I beleive this is one of the differnces with Iron...

This one is for Linux.
http://build.chromium.org/f/chromium/snapshots/chromium-linux-reliability/

I've used chrome but i like to support these guys with the open-source so use chromium instead sometimes.

Safari is great when it can actually open the website you want to use. Luckily I also have FF on my Mac

Internet explorer is hideous but at least it tends to be trouble free!

Opened every site I have wanted to use, and some I didn't since the NetScape days....
