    Well, I've finally relented........

    ......and tried Google Chrome and I've got to say I'm liking it for now. This site seems to work properly now (none of that annoying 'refresh to reply' rubbish) and I can add a link in my post without a lecture about scripted windows.
    Just one thing, I'd like tp be able to have my bookmarks permanently open on the left like IE8 but it doesn't seem possible, unless anyone here knows how to do it?

    Dont think you can do it. From memory you can have them open in a tab but not a sidebar, like FF/IE.

    Yeah, thought so. Still, I'm liking it it though, it does seem to load pages much faster.

    It's the easiest browser to use imo.

    You can have your bookmarks permanently in the task bar at the top.

    It's like anything else though, you get used to stuff. I've only been playing with it for half an hour (stop, now :D) though and seem to have already got past the initial uncertainty.

    Thanks, I've installed the bookmarks extension for that.

    I got google chrome when they 1st started messing about with the site & found it a lot better.should be version 8 at the mo. I may well be telling you the obvious, but if you click the little spanner top right of the page & then click About Google Chrome it will tell you if you have the latest version & upgrage accordingly.

    Yeah, thanks. It's 8.0.552.215. I presume it's the latest as I downloaded it direct from the site.

    I check it now & again as you get no confirmation that an update is available. The only thing I do find is the displayed links using chrome are very faint on this site, it may well be my monitor as I'm using a netbook.
