Since I do a considerable amount of development in web applications and more specifically with SalesLogix web client I decided I should at least try to run the client in Chrome. I stayed outside of using the extended features to get a feeling of how things would work with the basic application (rendering, Java Script and the like) and wow … I can honestly say that the browser can perform. Everything seems to be extremely snappy. I am now thinking that this may be the kick in the Pants that MS needs to focus on performance in IE. I also love the capability of extracting tabs from the main browser window and spawning new windows. Pretty cool. From an UI stand point I do not see it as that much different from IE except for moving the URL edit box/tool bars into the tabs instead of the main window. First impressions very positive.
