    Glad to see Google patching their holes. While I'm not a huge fan of the hacker community, I have to admit that the non-linear methods they use to find bugs and exploits is amazing.

    Can't say I am a big fan of Chrome. I had an issue a few weeks ago with a nasty trojan I picked up from a site someone linked to either here or on another message board. While I was able to eliminate the trojan itself, it rewrote preferences in IE and Chrome. IE was simple, just hit the "reset" button in Tools.

    Chrome, however, doesnt have that option and every google result in Chrome took me to another search engine. I eventually found a walkthrough that showed you how to reset Chrome with a file switch.

    I have to use Chrome exclusively for one of my client - their pipeline was designed by Google, and ONLY works with Chrome. Don't get me wrong - Chrome is faster, but I just can't get used to it.
