    Yes, I used it a lot in the earlier versions but now I find it a bit resource hungry compared to Chrome.
    Running Firefox and Chrome side by side and looking at the Task Manager Processes Firefox uses 5x more memory
    FireFox - 192MB, Chrome 38MB

    Sorry for the hi jack, but I think we mentioned google somewhere along the line....hahah

    Thats a massive deference in the 2 footprints...... I think Im gonna take a good look at this.

    That Google Chrome OS sounds ok, I was going to install it on my sever (im running Linux at ATM) But wanted to see how it stood up for a while first.

    Whats it like for security? as good as Linux?

    Yeah, I was a bit surprised that there was that much difference. I knew recent versions of Firefox have been pretty thirsty
    I just did the test again and there is 4x difference int the two. The test is simple where I just open 15 tabs of one web site........

    As far as the OS I don't know much about it but might have to investigate

    I have been using OPERA browser and found it excellent. Only using 55MB in task manager and quicker to load pages.

    this is fantastic technology. i have a HTC protouch2 mobile and it is fantastic for running google maps with the satelitte overlay and cause the HTC can pick up satellites it can tell me where i am within 10 meters if connected to enough sats which i have found to be a bit slow to connect. once connected though it is just awsome, then the little arrow will follow you around and has no trouble keeping up when off road (can be a bit laggish when doing 100kph) great little gadget. the only thing that buggs the heck out of me is that I can not seem to find the option so that it will plot / record where i have been. Otherwise ive had nothing but good experieces with google maps and cant wait for the 3d part to come online!!!
