I had to at least try it out, it is kinda slick (you know, like most
things OS X ;-). The "application mode" or whatever its called is
handy (despite the fact that almost every other browser does the same
thing, they just call it full screen mode).

I do use Google services aside from Gmail in part because I have no
choice (Adwords) and in part because its handy (keeping everyone
coordinated on school projects with Google Docs for instance). For
such services why not use Chrome? I've already handed more over to
Google than I want, not sure what else they can gleam from me.

Just my random 2 cents.
