Google Chrome in Debian
Google's Chrome browser has been accepted in
under the unbranded Chromium name. Currently, it's in the experimental
distribution, but as it does not depend on other stuff from
experimental, installation is not a big problem. Now I can finally get

My first impression is that the browser is really fast,
although not so much faster that I will instantly drop good ol'
Iceweasel as my primary browser. What I don't like is the way search
engines are organized; the browser recognizes visited search engines
(although not the Debian Packages
Search) and presents them
in the location bar, which is very confusing. However, it's nice to
have it around, especially as I think about starting a Web Sockets
project, and so far I haven't been able to get Debian's WebKit
browsers to support them.
