It will likely be way better than it looks now when it finally releases in non beta form which knowing google could be years

I downloaded Chrome a few minutes ago. I think its very nice, especially the clean and simple look it has. I'm gonna test drive this browser for awhile, it still has alot of impressing to do in order to get me to switch from FF.

It was easy to predict that the browser wouldn't succeed at first launch. Give it time, Google (obviously) has the money to continue fixing this up.
Google don't care if this thing is a 'flop', they've even said that themselves, what they're trying to do is evolve the web, which is why they've made the entire project open source, so other browsers such as Firefox can take these ideas and run with them. It's to Googles advantage to keep the web evolving, they're a web based company after all, and they want to push web applications to their limits. This all makes perfect sense.

Not to mention, looks pretty ugly...
It offers alot of new features actually, and has a spell checker build in :P

Speed doesn't always mean everything, the download manager is wicked. I like the way they have no titlebar because it gives more room to display the web page. Cool eh ?

Also, there is nothing wrong with the installation program, I have seen worse / more annoying ones.

A new process thread per tab has the advantage of not closing the whole browser if problems are encountered I suppose but from first impressions of other people I can't see myself rushing to install this.
No crapwear here!

Yeah, I did some tests, and for me, Chrome was quicker than FireFox 3.0.1
