What needs work is a few things, such as web standards compliance. Although ACID2 passed without fail, it broke whenever the browser window was resized, and ACID3 scored 79/100 – good, but not ideal. Some users are also reporting some sites to run slower than others (compared to other browsers), although I haven’t experienced such a thing yet. I’m sure after days of use, such issues will creep up, but as it stands, for a first release, things should only get better.

At this point in time, there’s little use in throwing requests around, because I’m sure Google has other features in their roadmap that they are not talking about yet, such as plugin support, GUI customization, the ability to customize your speed dial and more.

If you haven’t already, you should give Chrome a try yourself. It’s a super-quick download, and hey, you might just like it. For alternate looks at the browser (mine wasn’t good enough?!), check out Google’s comic strip, features video and ’10 features of Chrome’ video, to help yourself get better acquainted.
