I just finished synching with Firefox, and decided to try it with Chrome; of course, the instructions on synching required the latest version, so I first had to update to that. WHAT A MISTAKE. The so-called help is NOTHING like what happens. What happens, is the minute you sign in, it WIPES OUT whatever you had in the Chrome Browser on your machine, and REPLACES it with whatever it had before you signed in, from some past sign-in session. NO OPTION NO WARNING, and no settings you can access to STOP it from doing this. Their inaccurate 'help' claims that thre are settings, but guess what? NONE appear, and no confirmation or other warning dialogue prior TO it wiping out what's on your machine. WHAT A LOAD OF JUNK!
I just lost months of carefully-structured links. Will have to go restore my computer now to get those old links, back.
I hate Chrome worse than death, but it's the only browser which won't crash due to cookie-heavy requests from news reading sites, Amazon, and Youtube. It won't work so often in many sites (won't work in PC World, says too many redirects), its video streaming is awful, and worst of all, it's as unintuitive as a browser can be.
If I didn't have to use it for shopping, to avoid all those horrid cookies (because Chrome will force them all to be session-only), I'd never use it.
