Quick note on my initial tooling around Google's new browser, Chrome.

First off, very fast. Opens about three times faster than Firefox 3, which is quite a bit faster than 2. Granted, I have a good number of plug-ins with Firefox that slows it down, but still. And it's quite quick in opening pages.

Love the movable tabs. You can click on drag a tab to a different position, or to its own window, and back. 

Also, has a task manager for the browser--you can look at the RAM usage for each tab, and close a tab if it freezes up, without shutting down the whole browser. As my son, Jonathan, points out, very much like an OS rather than a browser.

I also like the one window for address and search. Very clean.

Very impressive for a beta.
