  1. Chrome seems to have issue with font rendering on the Mac. I often see what looks like squares with a capital “A” inside of it rather than the text of the page. Opening these pages in other browsers (FF, Safari) I see the pages with fonts intact displaying normally. It appears to relate to which fonts are activated on my Mac. I've corrected the problem by using Font Book to find and fix font duplicates but sometimes this doesn't work.

  2. snappier than firefox, but a lot more crash happy =-
    chrome gets unstable around 40 tabs total on my computer
    while firefox is good for around 70
    but safari doesn't play well with more than 8 tabs 🙁
    i'm just starting to use opera again, and its perfectly happy being a youtube music player 🙂 but it has the annoying habit of having a page-load delay 😡
