An Internet Browser is what I use most on my Netbook, so I sent some time looking at different browsers. They all do pretty much the same, rendering speed arguments aside. It was the interface that mattered to me. I tried all the big browsers, IE8, Firefox, Opera, Chrome.
In the end I settled on Chrome. The main reason I liked it, was because the toolbar area was the smallest of all the browsers. Allowing me to see more of the page. I know some of you will tell me about full screen modes etc, but I don’t like it. I prefer to have the Start Bar and the IE toolbar visible.
I’ve tried Chrome on my PC before, but I didn’t quite like it on systems with larger screens. But for Netbooks, Chrome is my browser of choice.
One thing I’m looking forward to is Google Chrome OS. The combination of this browser and Google’s work with Android will be something that I think will push Windows 7 aside on Netbooks.
