Google Chrome 9 for Linux

I realized last night at our replacement MHVLUG dinner that I was the only one there who was still using Firefox on Linux. Everyone else was on the Chrome bandwagon. And that’s where I thought it would stay, until Chrome 9 came out today.

Yes, Chrome is faster, and doesn’t die on javascript randomly, but the thing that pushed me over the edge was the fact that Google bothered to support WebGL on Linux with the release. I loaded it up to test and found the WebGL demos ran with barely any CPU usage. Ok, I’m sold for now. It’s my new default browser, and we’ll see if it sticks this time.
