    I have recently purchased a new laptop with Windows 7.

    I am now using Google Chrome as I am unable to install FireFox on Windows 7.

    Although Chrome is clearly a Google product, it doesn't have the Google Toolbar plugin, so no page rank info avail, no viewing cached pages etc.

    Very frustrating.

    I have been using Chrome since it was launched and there are some limitations to it - like the ones you mentioned.

    Every now and then I'll come across a web page that has some functionality that Chrome doesn't handle very well, but that is quite rare.

    On the whole I really like using Chrome - especially how fast it is. For my needs it suits me fine. If there is something I need to view in Firefox I always have a little internal groan. Chrome's probably not going to be for everyone, but I am more than happy to recommend it.

    I too am using Firefox on Windows 7, I just upgraded from Vista and Firefox worked perfectly. I have used Chrome a little bit at a mates place, but im not a big fan, it is very Googley, perfect for people who aren't too computer savvy.

    I can install it but then when I open it it says that FF has crashed and offers to restart, but then crashes all the time...

    I figured it was a Windows 7 compatibility issue...

    I have tried 3 separate occasions to install...

    Any tips?
