I have a couple of computers I use regularly a notebook and a desktop and a (Made for SL Specs) new one that I bought from a freind of my brother a few months ago.. which I’m not using at the moment but thats another story.
Like some of you (not the really old farts!) my first experience with being “online” was with AOL then when I went to college I actually discovered the internet using Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape. I preferred Netscape because all the cool people were using it. OMG.. peer pressure from the other geeky people! Oh by the way my roomate used a MAC and I tried Safari but I just love my right click too much to get used to a Mac. Eventually I found out about Mozilla FireFox and I loved it ~bye bye Internet Explorer!
Enter Google Chrome. Obviously Google doesn’t need me to rant and rave about any of their products the company seems to be doing just find without my help.. but I’m saying this for my friends.. Try Chrome for 1 week. Just do it. You don’t have to get rid of your other browser(s) you can still keep em don’t worry the world wont end and I think you will thank me later for talking you in to trying it. They taught us to say NO to Drugs.. not Google.
I don’t use the internal browser in SL (SecondLife). Often I open my browser while I have SL going and NO OTHER BROWSER opens up even half as fast as Chrome does when I have SL open or when I dont. As you’ll see in this screenshot above (I use regular Chrome for SL browsing and related stuff and I use Chrome Plus for my 1st life work) . Pictured above is how chrome comes up for me and most things I use are 1 click away youll see them across the top and in the middle. The pages you see in the middle are my most often used websites (Chrome takes a care of keeping track of that automatically for me but its still freindly nice enough to let me organize things if I want to).
Yaah yeah I know people say Oh Googles trying to take over the world.. oh Google tracks all the websites you go to and throws advertising at you!.. Thats fine with me. If I have to see Advertising on the internet like we all do..I would rather see an ad about Virtual Worlds or Mobile Devices or somthing like that than an ad about farm equipment or something that doesn’t pertain to me . (nothing against farmers ok I love you guys I like to eat.)
Just go try it ok? Lemme know what ya think.. here’ s the link.. You should have it up and running in about 3 mins.
