I've been using Chrome as my primary browser since its release, to give it a fair long-term use test. So far I really like it.

A few websites whine at me about unsupported browsers, but otherwise work fine. Some Facebook applications hang on AJAX requests, so those I have to reopen in Firefox.

I wasn't a huge add-on user in Firefox, so I'm not feeling lost without them... with the exception of AdBlock. I've worked around it a bit by redirecting the major advertising websites to 127.0.0.1 in my hosts file :oD.

The most frustrating bug is an issue with the Flash plugin - sometimes it just stops working, resulting in videos playing only their first few seconds before hanging, until I completely restart Chrome.

The biggest advantage to me is the "superbar" - it's already changed the way I interface with search, Wikipedia, and my history. For search, I used to hit ctrl/cmd-L and then tab to the search field. For Wikipedia, I'd usually start typing "en." and then type in the name of the page I wanted. For history, I'd scroll through the menu or extended listing. Now I do that all through Chrome's bar, and I find myself trying to do it using the location bar in other browsers (Safari, Firefox, IE, etc.). It is definitely better than Firefox 3's.

At this point, I'm waiting on a Mac version for my home computer, and some bug fixes, but I'm planning on sticking with it.

As someone who does standards based web design for a few classes I've found Chrome has a few quirks that makes it not display things as properly like Firefox. But its better than other *cough*IE*cough*. Definitely a strong secondary browser in my opinion.

I looked at it, but once I saw the EULA I decided to go back to my IE8 Beta 2!

I installed it and messed with it when it first came out, but I think I will still stick with FireFox for now.
