    I've been running Chromium for a good few months now and I do like it. I haven't been running AdBlock for a while as I didn't like the permissions it was asking for after one of the updates. I must revisit that...

    What I do miss is being able to use shift+enter for .net addresses and ctrl+shift+enter for .org addresses. I love that feature in Firefox/Rekonq.

    Thanks, Elija & Gruven. I've installed AdBlock+ and NotScript and feel a lot happier now. They both seem to work properly although I'm actually using Chromium, not Chrome. I tried them out on a trusted site that needs to have javascript enabled to work. I must say I like the speed of Chromium. Firefox is so damn' slow.

    Hey, I've just discovered something that is really cool. When you open a new tab in Chromium, it shows thumbnails of your favorite sites to go to in one click.

    Now that is so thoughtful...

    And in chrome/chromium, you can search from the address bar. That is one of my favorite perks.

    I uninstalled Firefox from my computers long ago and forced myself to use and learn chrome/chromium.
