Interesting problem with Google-Chrome
I recently installed Google-Chrome on CRUX. Everything is working as expected with one exception... It will not display .png images. Just for fun, I opened Google-Chrome briefly as root and .png images are displayed. Chrome does not have problems displaying .png files on any of my Ubuntu boxes. It appears to be a permissions issue somewhere. I thought perhaps it was with libpng so I changes permissions to full on /usr/lib/libpng*. This makes no difference. Anyone have any ideas why .png images will display while running Chrome as root but not as regular user? Thanks.

From what I know Crux uses ports as a "package manager". So I suppose Chrome is dynamically linked to the libraries. Have you tried running ldd on the binary to see if you find the library with the wrong permissions?Put your hand in an oven for a minute and it will be like an hour, sit beside a beautiful woman for an hour and it will be like a minute, that is relativity. --Albert Einstein

I was about to do the same. I've heard a lot of good things about chrome; it's supposed to be much faster than firefox. But when I read the license agreement I changed my mind. Did you actually read it before you downloaded? It's frightening, the amount of power you agree to give them."I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"

I've been using chromium for some time now and it definitely feels snappier than Firefox, though I understand they use some trickery to achieve that, drawing the window before the page is rendered and whatnot.
Or there is also SRWare Iron.
