Hmmm, speak of the devil. I was just on my laptop earlier (in the campus lab now) and couldn't get Google Chrome to go to any pages. It said "connecting..." on the bottom left corner of the browser. I tried going to different webpages and even restarting my computer. No help.
Still wouldn't connect to any webpages.
It literally just had a blank white screen with the words "connecting..." at the bottom. At one brief short period of time it said something like "proxy server" (or something like that), but that message disappeared quickly and it was back to the "connecting..." message again.
Not sure if this is just a temporary thing, but it sucks for the moment since I'm too scared to use IE after the big scare in the news. So Chrome is my only other browser in my dorm.
