    Like all stable releases, Google Chrome 16 brings lots of improvements, like Sync improvements and the ability to add new users and create multiple profiles on a single instance of Google Chrome, as well as the ability to sign-in to Chrome (see the video below for more information).

    More...

    I have already got Chrome 16 loaded on my laptop. I am still trying out the new features. Feel a bit faster, for a start.

    Victor Leigh --

    Tell us how you like Chrome 16 after three months of use, please. I'd like to hear your views of it vis-a-vis Chromium, too.

    Well the ability to add new users is a great improvement over the last version of Chrome.

    FINALLY, being able to have multiple profiles, this has been annoying the hell out of me for far too long.

    Windows is winning! :D

    Just kidding, Google chrome is on it's 19th version on windows, but here it's only the 16th, i'm sure it has a lot of performance tweaks and i found Chromium to be much quicker than firefox on Linux.

    Where is the better performance chrome has problems with crashing in some departments still. Firefox does not crash every time I view YouTube or Adobe flash videos.

    To pretty much requote Rob, Chrome is now 18 I believe. It seems the internet has died over there :p

    LOL yup baffled the hell out of me when I saw it pop up.

    The question should be - does anyone read dates?

    BTW does anyone have a date? Speaking of dates my life is slowly fizzling out like this thread...

    Ubuntu is the best distro and supported widely by lot of software companies like VLC , Google Chrome , Mozilla and it has a lot of forums where you can get help so I suggest you download it from ubuntu.com
