Google Chrome First Impression: Is It What You Expected? (Download Squad)

Sep 2nd 2008 6:18PM The one and only reason I'm not fully switching, yet, is: add-ons!!

As soon as they start making new, and powerful add-ons, I'll be sticking with Firefox.

However, I must say....I used it for about an hour....and it was hard to go back and use Firefox....

Even my dad, who is the average IE user, liked Chrome a LOT.

I give props to Google, they did a MUCH better job than I expected. I wont say it is that much of a competition right now (in beta) but, watch out Microsoft...because...[once again]....you have competition....

OpenSUSE 11.0 review, part 3 (Download Squad)

Jun 19th 2008 11:30AM I don't know.....I would love to switch to openSUSE, but Ubuntu is working just fine for me, even though I've always had problems installing those ati drivers.

What would make me want to change to openSUSE?
What is the BIGGEST difference between the two (when using gnome)?

United States loves Firefox 3, Turkmenistan, not so much (Download Squad)

Jun 18th 2008 9:10AM Notice how Chad only has one download. That's pretty cool, though.

Almost every single country in the world uses firefox....that's pretty interesting. Even countries in Africa that I have never even heard of.

Parallels for Mac hits 1,000,000 users (Download Squad)

Jun 11th 2008 6:37AM We would be able to completely forget about Windows if there was 100% compatibility for Windows programs on Macs and Linux.

If only there was a way to have support for .exe files out of the box....it would make life easier. Sure there are things like Wine and CrossOver (for Ubuntu, at least) but it would be a lot better if it was out of the box and fully compatible.

Parallels for Mac hits 1,000,000 users (Download Squad)

Jun 10th 2008 6:15PM Well, I run Ubuntu and use VirtualBox to run Windows XP.

I don't secretly love Windows, but I do need it for things Ubuntu can't do.

There are programs that only Windows can run (even games), so we are, kinda, forced to use it.

For everything else, all I need is Ubuntu (and for some people's cases, Macs).

I guess Windows is one of those things you want to get rid of, but you know you just can't go without it.
